Good to hear. Look out for carpet baggers.

We're pleased to hear the impact at your place is manageable, JD.

Take care,

I hope you can see this, I snagged it from FB. It's a flyover of Mexico Beach.

The video I've seen of Panama City, while heartbreaking still seems rather light compared to other places I've been after a hurricane.

But this looks like Rockport, Texas after their hurricane that just sat on the town. I volunteered down there to help clean up. I spent many an hour on a skid steer demolishing trailers, homes, etc. Plus just plain cleaning up.

Friday Mid-day (or thereabouts)-
Still no power/water at Team Slotus World Headquarters. I just took a shower at HamDip House and used some of her mint-scented shampoo. My moustache smells divine, lemme tell ya! That's about the highlight of it all so far... :ack:

Thanks for the video link David. I had actually seen that before now, but thanks all the same. The big building they show standing at about 40 seconds in is El Guv. Videos and several other pictures show the building is standing... I wonder how much of the seaward walls/windows are still there??? I suspect a lot of the debris floating in the (flooded) parking lot used to be the rooms above. Sad to see, either way. They had a set of ground level "condo" type suites next to the main building, past the pool. They're gone... I'm hoping they can come back to life after all this, we will have to wait and see.

I think I've mentioned Cabo's restaurant in here before. David, that's the place we went when y'all were here. The owner posted on FaceBook that they were undamaged, saved the refrigerated/frozen stuff thanks to the gen-set they installed a couple of years ago and they'd be back up and running soon as they get the power back on. I'm glad they're OK. There's a picture of the Slotus over their cash register... Classy joint!

As Kurt Vonnegut put it, "And so it goes." We'll be back to normal soon here at Team Slotus. I'm hoping the rest of this l'il corner of the world will too.

So, how are y'all doing? Anybody building a car or anything?

Peace, Love and "Mint Scented" --

Good to hear you're doing ok. Hope everything else gets back to normal for everyone else too.

Relived to hear you and family are ok.

I wasn't sure if you'd seen the video, but since you'd talked about that area I knew it would be of interest to you.

I hadn't realized that's where we went to eat, good food.

Well glad to see you are alive and kicking and hopefully things will only get better.

And now we have internet and cable TV again, so we are actually part of this century again. (I guess that's a good thing?)

Kristian- Guess right now the snow up your way looks pretty good compared to the weather here... Yeah, I kinda have to agree... Kinda... :mrgreen:

Airframe! Howdy! This might be the first time we've seen you here in Team Slotus. Careful, don't get any of it on you... :ack: Yep. smellin' good, feelin' good... Ain't life wunnerful!?!? :mrgreen:

We're babysitting today while Allyne/Hand Grenade is using my truck to take a bunch of bottled water and about 50 gallons of gas over to her in-laws family home in Jackson County. Some aunts and uncles and grandparents are there, not too far northeast of Panama City and Mexico Beach. They don't have power or water (and they're kinda out in the boonies to begin with) and thanks to the storm the nearest operating gas station or grocery store is in Dothan AL, a couple of hours away.

So, no progress on the car today, but it's for worthy cause. Plus, I get to play with the grandson, Ducky, all day.

Peace, Love and "NO! Don't Put That In Your Mouth!"

PS-MV8, I haven't shot any carpet-baggers... YET. :twisted:

I'm really glad you and yours are OK.

My sister-in-law made it from Sarasota, much to our surprise. We try to keep up with what's going on in Florida, especially in Mexico Beach, yet still do some fun things here too. She's a Red Cross volunteer, so I'm sure she'll be involved back home after she returns next week.

Regards,

No snow here yet, but at work it's getting pretty close. One morning middle of last month it was -9. They say you at least don't have to shovel rain, but that's kind of a moot point if your neighbour's house ends up in your yard.
