    Even I, as a local, can't stand the stuff.
    Mac's, Monteiths and Speight - followed by some imported brews and our local microbreweries in the Wairarapa (my preferred tipples).

    While we are at the topic of Americans: "Tesla remotely extends range of vehicles for free in Florida to help owners escape Hurricane Irma"

    You are telling me, that there are now software downloads/upgrades to let your car travel further? And that I gotta pay 10 grand for a software upgrade on my car to make it happen? How are people okay with this

    Don't buy an electric car and then you do not pay for a software upgrade.

    Just some random guy's musings about satirically being able to beat back a storm by shooting it. In other words, a joke. Of course MSM has latched onto it and once again attempted to spin it as a case of another "Dumb American gun nut".

    The wind started yesterday and this morning it's raining quite steady.

    The dangerous part of the Hurricaine is due to hit us at 7pm Sunday night our time and last until about 6am Monday.

    The US192 which runs past our hotel is virtually empty for the first time in the three weeks that we've been here and the hotel is full to capacity with all the evacuees from further south, including their pets.


    Almost Everyman and his dog carries here.

    Haven't seen a gun on the street yet, apart from the police officers ...... Oh and mall security guys........ Oh and all the employees at the guns stores..... And the guy fill the fridge with beers at the liquor store........ And I'm pretty sure the guy organising the muscle car cruise the other night had one stiffed in the back of his jeans.

    Don't believe any thing the media is saying.
    Some of the recent Hearld articles I have read on the Hurricaine have been sensationalised to the point of almost sheer fantasy and are just fear mongering.

    Cheers
    Pete

    We're in a hotel on the US192 at Kissimmee near Orlando.

    Was just about to ask how you were holding out, and if you still had power, I see the keys are currently getting hit.

    Stay safe.

    Just another typical sunny day here in California

    Pissing down with rain now, little rivers forming in the Carpark and on the road, not much wind yet.

    The eye of the storm will hit us in about 7 hours.

    Curfews are in place and Tornado warning have been issued.

    The lake across the road is filling pretty fast too.
