doing fine so far, still have power and just a lot of wind with some high water. It is high tide now and the water in the canal almost came out into the roads, but not yet. 

we are just getting the large hurricane speed gust of winds that will come with the storm moving up the west side of the state. being on the east side we get the strong leading winds and we have had tornado warnings all night and still going on.  

keep up the prayers for everyone in this storms path. it is really nasty compared to previous storms..

as for donations, Salvation Army and Samaritans Purse both put 100% of your donation to work on the issue it was donated for. They do this work everyday, not just for disasters.

My friend in Palm Beach Gardens says all is well, but no power.

Thanks for all your prayers. Me and my property came out of this almost unscathed and I didn't even loose power. My mom and dad, live in Orlando and they lost power for a day, but are back up and running; they had some debris and their neighbors jumped right in and cleaned it up for them. Same thing for a generator; one of their neighbors ran a cord to run their freezer off. 

My son is in Ft Lauderdale and is still having issues with power. Electric outages are really strange this time because of the way that one block has power and the next will not. Usually we see entire areas either up and not, but this is spread out all over. Last night I took supper over to them and on the way home I passed a Wendy's and there was a line of cars  all the way around the building, across the parking lot, and down  the street two blocks.  

please keep your prayers going for him and the other millions of people without power.

Will do and keep up with updates.
Photos of anything in your area?

Sometimes hard to tell the devastation as outsider,
unless you live there.
Its just not the same via pictures I know.....

Oakland Hills fire, pictures/film simply did not
tell the story until we got up close and personal.
One could not help but shed tears when next to damage....
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oakland_firestorm_of_1991

All the best to you and yours and others in Texas and other states....
