The sheriff of Lee County, FL has been on national media this morning already saying that their county has fatalities in the hundreds from Ian. Time will tell if that's accurate or not, and we can hope it isn't, but it's a terrible sign for what may be coming in the next several days as people can get on site and really identify the casualties.

I do not doubt that is true. Tons of retirement villages were either obliterated or flooded with up to 10 feet of water. A lot of them downplayed it and refused to leave. It did not help that the forecast changed so fast for them.

My aunt runs a cook house at the fairs across the SE with Arnold Amusements. She told me the Red Cross already called her to bring her cook house again. I think she told me she is going to the Punta Gorda area. I might have to use my vacation time and go help out.

My aunt got spared in the Gibsonton (Tampa) area. She said my uncle surrounded her house with his semi trucks that had full trailers. I think he said it was bottled water inside he was contracted to hold by the Shriners. I laughed at first but realize it may not have been that bad of an idea. She had some tiles come off her roof and a bunch of palm trees uprooted, but they made it through. The last I checked they still had no electricity.
