    Re: Hurricane Dorian

    Just pulled out my generator from my garage, which hasn't been used since Irma 2 years ago. It's a 2005 Wen Power 5500 with a (13 HP) GX390 Honda engine. Started first pull! Then shut off after a minute and I smelled gasoline. Fuel line popped off from vibration - and is brittle - so I'll replace in the morning. Relief to have that baby operational!

    My office sits on a narrow peninsula in downtown St. Augustine. It won't take much to flood out the building. At work tomorrow, we will spend the day boxing up everything needed to keep working remotely. I'll also be on sandbag duty. I expect to be working at a different location for while, maybe at Camp Blanding. We will be staying home because my wife will likely be required to report to one of her hospitals. Hopefully, Ponte Vedra Beach gets nothing more than steady rain and mild winds, but I expect it to be bad.

    Bodhi - good luck to you and yours. Please thank your wife for all her medical assistance. Hoping also it isn't as bad as it appears it might be.

    I would wait just a bit and see if you can. There should be a bit more clarity about where it will hit or even if it will hit. There are more models showing the possibility that it could veer north and never actually make land in Florida. It depends on the strength of the pressure system coming from the north that's driving the hurricane's course as it travels west. You might get to see Mickey after all! What's your time frame regarding reservation cancellations?

    Re: Hurricane Dorian

    I guess one of my concerns is being able to buy gas if all stations are out. I can still cancel but am going to wait to see what it does but the concern is there.

    Yes. That is definitely a concern. I don't know if the app, Gas Buddy, might help with that? I'm in West Palm Beach and, we can still get gas. Various stations have run out at times but they have still been able to get deliveries so it's been temporary. That's a hard thing to predict. This entire storm has been that way and it's moving more slowly every time I check!

    Agree with all posted by Maudiemae, CFM.

    Right now we're just in a holding pattern as far as where the storm goes and how much damage we receive.

    I'd wait until we know more before making any firm decisions. I'd think we'll know more by Monday and certainly by Tuesday.

    There's plenty of gas in the state and the trucks are still making deliveries from the port to the stations so hoping that won't be an issue. Seems like everyone has their tanks filled up by now as well, based on what I've seen...lol.

    Best of luck to you.

    My wife got home this morning after a 24-hour shift. She does the anesthesia for the labor and delivery unit. All the moms scheduled for delivery next week are having everything moved up. My wife did about a dozen cases (at about 90 minutes each). It's going to be a long weekend.
