I keep seeing footage of your area and some of the damage. You guys obviously have it much worse than we do inland. But on a bright note you guys actually had waves that amounted to something on your beaches for a change!

Yea and eroded millions of dollars of the soft white sand they've been trucking in. Not to mention all the brand new landscaping for the RNC that is now under water.

I mowed in Port Charlotte today. I had to weed trim some culverts but that is nothing new. It was either weed trim them, skip them, or put a snorkel on the mower.

Believe you me, there are plenty of us here that were looking for Debby to make the left turn and head towards Texas to refill our lakes, some of which are as much as 30-40 foot low and less than 50% full, IF not counting the ones that have dried up and not been able to catch any water. Something like that storm, had it come in and stalled over the Texas hill country and dropped 14-20 inches of rain would have added greatly to Lake Travis and probably even Buchanan.

So close and yet so far Weatherman had said they expected it to go NW.

Meanwhile, Florida Water Management has announced it is "moving" water. That's a code for dumping billions of gallons of fresh water into the ocean in advance of a protracted dry spell. It's uncanny how they can do it every time.

We were able to get in a full day of mowing, just downsized a few mowers on some properties. A lot less clean up than I thought wed have, I guess the storm a few weeks ago already made the mess... just a lot of water this time.

We've cleaned up enough palm fronds to build a hotel out of them.
