    Yep. Lots of downed trees. Anything that wasn't a well seasoned palm tree had difficulties in Juno Beach.

    Lorida report. No power in all of Highlands or Okeechobee counties who knows when it will come back considering these are sparsely populated crackerville counties. My place only lost a few vinyl siding planks but they are picked up and waiting under my carport. Speaking of which, my carport tarp survived! Paid all of $50 for it. Hurray! Rest of fish camp has a few trees down and some minor damage but all are safe.

    I'm up in Michigan so can't help recover, kinda bummed about that part.

    I have ground in Polk City. Friends tell me no power. I was driving south on the NJ Turnpike this afternoon when I passed a convoy of 16 tree service/ bucket trucks all from the same NY company. I hope they're headed your way

    Lost a lot of trees in Weston but I could care less. Over-planted anyway.. Power went out for all of 2 minutes where I'm at, but some parts of town are out and will be for a few days..
    My friends in the Keys are fooked beyond measure...
    I have sporadic contact and it's pretty crappy down there... Islamorada has faired better than most parts but the damage is still significant...

    Anyone in Palm Beach County still suffering more than welcome to take a nice shower, have a hot cup of coffee and can even look into throwing some pork in the slow cooker for some tacos tomorrow and Thursday. Just hit me up.

    Good here at the house in Spring Hill, we never lost power

    Camp in Weeki I has none as of this afternoon

    Of course they repaired the main line

    But there's only about five houses on my street and they haven't bothered replacing our transformer yet

    A few trees down and sporadic power outages. FPL's outage reporting system was inoperative for a time so they want everyone to resubmit their power outage tickets. WTH?

    Lost power Sat evening and got it back this a.m. We faired well with just a few trees down, a few bits of fence and lots of debrix. That's about best case scenario for a storm of this magnitude. Thoughts are with those that will have to deal with this long term.

    What are the chances gas will start to show up by Sunday? I have to drive down from Michigan soon to first my place near sebring/okeechobee then after clean up and some repair down to boca raton to help mom and dad. I'm guessing I'll go down 98/19 through Lakeland. Small roads and towns.

    I know down sebring way there is no chance of power coming back for a while.
