    Have a old GF that worked SC Johnson WI, had month off every year. She had friends living Abaco's. Spent the month there and wanted to move there (retire) and ride a horse on the beach, live on a sailboat. Told her "you have a free vacation there now! Told her that at times, it aint all "sunsets, etc, as "**** can get REALLY rough there. As now.. Bahamas direct hit? God be with you there..

    Watched a news quest today start on about why Pres Trump hasn't done anything about the hurricane. I believe she was wanting national guard deployment. Well , I think standing around in 200mph wind waiting for it to let up isn't going to help anything. Wow

    A friend was deployed in the NG during Katrina and Rita. He was in the thick of it during both. He didn't have anything good to say about the natives in NO either.

    Not much to do except save yourself and get out out of the way if you're not built to take it.
