Florida Turnpike is traveling @ 8 mph. Don't understand people heading north because they will most likely run out of gas going & coming back.
In our canal, we have tied up our boats in the middle of the canal criss crossing our lines with neighbors on the other side of the canal.
We got our cash Monday but neighbors went to Wells Fargo & TD bank which were supposed to be open until noon but the doors were closed @ 9am. Publix ATM's have run out of money.
We have plenty of gas & a tanker delivered 8 million gallons yesterday to the port in Ft. Lauderdale. No price gouging as gas is $269 per gallon. Got 25 gallons for our generator earlier this week.
Loewe's has been the most consistent place to get water with a two case maximum per person. Cops standing by so that nobody acts like some of the knuckleheads in Miami.Neighborhood pub providing 1 cooler full of ice for their patrons.
Bread peanut butter & jelly are slim but the Publix bakery is baking bread as much as possible.Expecting 3 to 5 feet of storm surge where I am. Shutters on facing the canal & hurricane windows & garage protect the rest of the house.
Neighbors are staying put because they know what a hassle it is getting back home after the storm. Neighbors helping neighbors is working for us right now.
