Still waiting to hear from Gulf Coast Guppy. I know her area has a lot of people without power.

Hopefully GulfCoastGuppie's avatar message saying "SW Fla Ltd Wifi" means she's OK as is wished for all our MIA's.

Hey y'all !!! Checking in from Charlotte County. Still no power but latest by the 22nd. Sweltering heat but I have wifi and a/c in the truck. Only just now figured out which of these ports in the truck will recharge my laptop battery but I still may not have the time to finish the challenge or give gifts.

2 trees from the lot next door fell on our roof but was suspended by the power line. Got those off ourselves today. Also no flooding.

Glad to read of everyone's safety and recovery!

So glad to hear from some of our Florida and North Carolina players ..... hoping that the damage continues to be minimal .... and if major -- that it all gets resolved soon.

Welcome back GulfCoastGuppy

Do what you can to stay cool. With power out I'd hang out in the truck with a/c too .

Hang in there and try and stay as cool as possible.

WooHoo!!! Power back at 6:30. Inside the house had cooled down to 87 degrees before coming on. Hopefully will catch up on the CC.

Thank you, thank you ALL for all the friendship and prayers during this time. My prayers still going out to all of us affected by Harvey and Irma. Long roads still ahead to recovery and order.

And thank you silver_hawk for the ice cube. It's the only one I've seen in 9 days LOL!

It's great to see so many from Florida showing their Merlin Avatar.

Her game icon also shows red.
I know that she wrote earlier in this thread that she had to move off her island and in with her son. Hoping all is well and that her absence merely means that there is still a lack of power to her region or some such easily explainable reason.

She said she is in Lee County which is where I am. Overall 18% are still without power. Most are expected back by 9/19 but there are some areas that are even harder hit which are not expected to have power restored until 9/22. If she was on Marco Island it's pretty much destroyed and it could be 4 to 6 months before everyone can even access what remains of their properties. This was one of the original nine counties eligible for FEMA funds so it is a mess.

Most of the county has power from LCEC so you can check social media for updates.

Thanks Dot
Her games show red to me as well now but knowing there are still places without power hopefully explains why and she will be able to contact us soon.

And thank you mdpetdoc for the updates. I'm glad you and your family stayed safe.

Thank y'all for your concern, and glad to see most everyone else is OK.

Finally got power back Thursday night, but no internet. Comcast finally got to our neighborhood by 6 pm today , but not soon enough to complete 8 days of challenge. Darn! I wanted Merlin.

I succumbed to the pleas of my grandson, and went to the shelter Sat noon, and stayed with him and 2 other EMTs in a quiet room. Was able to take the dog, but the 4 cats stayed home with lots of food and water available. Home by Mon noon, house in great shape, limbs from Poinciana tree down, but no other damage. Generator worked to save food in 2 refrigerators, but no a/c until Thurs night, so have lucked out this one.

Neighbor across the street had canal water onto their back porch, but not in their house. My house is several feet higher than his.

Hope that anyone else we haven't heard from is OK.

Nell / Nell2 and One Cent

Welcome back PenWeb! Glad everything at the house was in as good a shape as it was.

Too bad about Merlin, but there will be others . The most important thing is your safety.

I don't pray, being an atheist and all, but I still wish everyone in Florida to stay safe!
