Hurricane Michael - GO AWAY!

Amazing the garbage tote was left unscathed.   Pictures probably not telling the whole story, but looks like you're immediate area is OK.

Garbage tote was in my garage during the storm. Some of my neighbors didn’t fare as well

I took a bunch more, but basically there are trees down all over.

Sorry, I've been snaking the floor drain in my basement.  Yep, backed up all over everything!  We've gotten 22 inches of rain since September 9th.

Blue Ridge Country Club just northeast of Galax, Virginia.

Over 90% of Tallahassee is without power. Panama City is completely destroyed. There are a few businesses reopening, but we’ll be spending a 2nd night in the dark here.

The saving grace in this is that the house is fine and the weather is turning cooler as I type this.

I have a video I took during the storm that doesn’t do the intensity of this storm justice, as we were well to the east of the center. But when I heard the wind, it sounded like a freight train when the gusts were higher. Imagine that intensity for hours if you were near the center.

This is somewhat of an update to this, and I'll preface these remarks with saying that I lived in Miami during Hurricane Andrew in '92, and had friends lose everything during that storm. So this is not my first rodeo with Florida and hurricanes. For what it's worth, Tallahassee has either been hit or brushed by 3 hurricanes in the past 3 years, so this is getting tiring and it mentally unnerves you to your core.

I'll also say that we got power back on Saturday, which means we were without power for 3 days. After seeing what I saw with my own eyes today, if that's as bad as it was for me, I'm extremely lucky.

I had a golf tournament today in Navarre, FL, which is just outside of Pensacola. I had to travel west on I-10 very early this morning, and it was still dark when I was driving through the heaviest hit areas that were hit by Hurricane Michael. But what I saw this afternoon on my way home simply is beyond words. West of where the eye wall of this storm went through, it literally looked like someone had grabbed a bunch of 50 foot tall pine trees and shredded them. Trees uprooted; trees shredded in half. There were some trees where they had cracked in half, but a majority of the trees I saw were actually split in two and the strength of this storm literally threw these trees like a javelin God knows how far. The pattern of destruction was all from winds coming from the north, as a ton of these trees were laying to the south.

Every single billboard along the highway was destroyed. It looked like someone had ran them through a paper shredder. Metal exit signs for interstate exits were cut in half at the base. Guys, THESE ARE STEEL signs!!!! The best way of describing this is that it looked like someone took a chainsaw to a 50 mile wide section of trees and just swung the chain saw back and forth about 50 times. I've never seen so many trees literally ripped to shreds.

Amazingly, not a single palm tree was damaged. But pine and oak trees were just simply shredded. Also amazing is that cell towers and 100 ft steel light poles along interstate exits stood undamaged. How I don't know, but they withstood the storm.

Without actually looking at the mileage, I-10 is roughly 20-30 miles north of the Gulf of Mexico, depending on where you are. If the interstate looks this bad, I can't even imagine what it looks like on the coast. Anyone living in the path of this storm has had their life completely destroyed. There is nothing left for them, and there is nowhere for them to go, or turn for help. I am hearing of people who haven't eaten since last Tuesday and they have no where to turn for help. I'm sitting here in Tallahassee, where the worst damage we got were some downed trees and power lines. We had church in the dark yesterday, and there are many of my friends who are still without power, nearly a week later. But man, I'm telling you, this is nothing. I am sitting here just wondering what Tallahassee would have looked like if this storm had turned about 50 miles eastward sooner and had a direct hit on this town. There would be nothing left here either, and that storm would have shredded this town without even trying. But yet I hear people locally here who are just dealing with no power for a few days, and the pettyness of some people astonishes me. One guy complaining on Friday because he hadn't had a cup of coffee for two days. Well boo freaking hoo pal!

I've honestly got nothing to complain about. Minor tree damage in my neighborhood, and a few days without power. I consider myself extremely fortunate that we were spared the brunt of this incredibly powerful storm.

Thoughts and prayers from my little rock in the Pacific! 🙏 I am still so grateful that these hurricanes keep missing us. Just seems like it's only a matter of time, and I'm not sure how we would hold up against that type of force.

Thank you for your comments. I can't imagine that type of destruction over such a wide area. In the Midwest we have isolated tornados and while they are destructive and lives have been lost they are nowhere on the scale of the Hurricanes over the past several years. I hope we get to hear some good news coming out of this area shortly - especially about people being found uninjured
