    That's either:
    1) The Florida panhandle getting dicked in the ass, or
    2) The reason why the water in the Gulf is brown

    I'm watching the news and Mikey really did a number on the panhandle. Sad shit. Looks like us SFL'ers really dodged a bullet.

    Makes me wonder how my building would fair. It's a big, concrete condo building so I am usually convinced that it would be fine, maybe the roof would blow off and the place would be condemned but I really doubt it would blow over. Who knows?

    So far in my 13 year FL career I've only had one bad one, Wilma. And it went down the year I moved here in 05. My parent's building and the crappy house I was living in at the time survived but a whole bunch of places all around us were leveled. I got lucky.

    When was your building built?

    A few of them started in the 1950's.
    I expected your building to have even built in the 70's or 80's.

    I wonder if Trump will do something to Sergio, since it went over the wall.

    Either way illegal alien Sergio arrived yesterday. I haven't seen a drop yet.

    In the 80's. Mine in the early 80's and my dad's in the mid 80's. He is in a 3 story, multi-building retirement condo complex and it has seen upgrades with a new roof and reinforced hurricane glass installed in all the windows a few years back. Mine still has a lot of the original windows that would likely be the first to go in any serious wind. His place also built a hurricane rated shelter/auditorium from the ground up in around 2008. It's big enough to fit the entire community. We are both pretty inland, dad like 4 miles from the ocean and me closer to 9, so flooding has historically never been a major concern. For any real storm I'd be over there to help him out since the roads would likely be blocked for days after a storm.

    At that age, the buildings should hold up reasonably well, especially 8 or 9 miles from the shore. They had started requiring the additional hurricane reinforcement a little later though.

    Yesterday Phoenix saw a few drops of rain, but today it poured. It flooded one of the major interstates in Phoenix I-10.

    I suppose to go the last game of the season for Phoenix Rising FC. If it keeps raining hard all day, I may just skip the event. Plus the parking lot is in a dirt lot, yea that going to cause a lot of stuck cars.

    Flooding on I-10 causes traffic jam at 43rd Avenue
