Survived another one!

Glad you made it through okay, Joe.

I, too, survived, but I'm really starting to lose my sense of
humor about these hurricanes.

This time we had damage to our roof (at home), and during
the storm the water rose around our back door and started
blowing underneath the door and into the room where my
classic machines live. I had to scramble to get everything to
dry space, but it looks like there were no casualties (except for
the carpet). No loss of electricity this time, though.

Again, the upside: we are still alive. Others may be shopping
for chainsaws, but I'm scoping out U-Haul trucks.

Later --
