I'm an idiot and had my window rolled down a couple inches during the hurricane lol

Luckily the side that was open was up against my dad's big truck and it was the other side of the car that took a beating from all the wind, so it's just a little damp. The window switch and door locks still work, so just need to do some drying.

I can't believe how much water was inside the hatch. I popped it open and a shit ton of water drained right into the cabin. It must have been forced in there from all that wind. I was expecting my taillights to be fried, but no problem there.

She's just dirty as hell from all that wind, there's shit shoved into every crevice

I feel bad for anybody trying to get home today. We left from Daytona to get to Brandon and we couldn't find any gas until we got to Brandon. Before we got to Brandon gas stations didn't have power. FPL cant estimate when power will back and are saying days to weeks. It's gonna be such a mess for people trying to rush back. We've got enough gas to make it home, but I think it's gonna be hell for everyone that has to travel farther than we did.

I think we're gonna spend the night in Tampa before we go back home to fort myers. We'll spend the night in some AC before we go home to no power fort Myers.

My neighbors left their SUV window down the entire time... and they evacuated so they were pretty screwed on that one.

We lost power at 11:56pm Sunday had it back on at 5:50pm Monday. Im lucky to live on a main feed line that feeds quite a bit of neighborhoods.

This storm could have been a lot worse for us up here but it luckily(for us) moved more western and weakened a lot before it hit Daytona Beach.

I knew where you were when i saw NSB but i get the struggle. lol Most people can easily associate Daytona Beach.. lol NSB/EW is asking a little more than someone else from central Florida.

That being said i think the hardest town for our area for anyone besides local to know is gonna be Bithlo

Coworker has a MK7 but besides that, not many people I know have GTI's around here. Mostly Brodozers and minivans.

That sucks man. I got power back within about 16 hours of it going out. My Neighbors still dont have power though. They are on a different grid than me, im the only house hooked up to a main line that runs next to the neighborhood they are all off a subline from further away.

Im still sitting here with no power. We've got the generator hooked up to both fridges and a bunch of fans. If it gets too hot we can jump in the pool. It could be a lot worse. I think I might try to hook up my tv and PS4 to the generator to watch a movie, maybe play a game.

Just got our power back a few minutes ago. Things can start going back to normal now...

Seriously can't believe how lucky we got with this storm. With the surge they were predicting before it hit were were expecting to lose our house to it. Instead we got home, cleaned up some trees, then pretty much jumped into our pool. We didn't even lose a single screen on our patio.

This was over in daytona, someones boat that was tied to the dock right next to where we were staying.



Also in daytona, can see the dock is all fucked up and one of the boats came off its lift.



It knocked over this little tree in our front yard.



And this much bigger tree was pushed away from the house luckily.



I have no idea how this pot wasn't pushed into the canal, and I know it wasn't sitting there when we left.



Lost another tree in the backyard.



This is our nieghbors tree. I'm pretty sure it split right down the middle. I don't think that's 2 trees. It looks like the top of it must have fell on the fence below too.
