No, it didn't. The track was well to our west.

We drove down and closed on our new place last week and will officially be permanently there next Wednesday morning...

Hope our place don't get blown away before we move in...

The media hype is typically much worse than the actual storm, especially where we are located in Central Florida, away from the Coasts. We lived right on Tampa Bay for 25 years and only had water come over the sea wall a couple of times, but never close to the house. Here in TV, we will have a full tank of gas and we always have water on hand. This storm isn't even projected to be a hurricane, only a tropical storm. That said, if it does become a Cat 1 or Cat 2 hurricane, we are in for some heavy wind and rain. In that case, be sure to bring in anything that could be blown around including lawn furniture and potted plants. Put your car and golf cart in the garage.

You said that already. I'm not disputing what you say happened only remembering what I saw on the news which, also like I said, could be off or changed.

Just saw where the pressure is dropping on it which means it's going to start to intensify plus the water gets a lot warmer the closer it moves toward Florida.

It sounds like you didn't believe me - thought it was worth repeating. What you are putting up look like forecasts - not the actual track. Not the same thing.

I was watching the WESH News at 3 am the morning Irma hit us and the weather reporters showed it hitting directly overhead (albeit considerably downgraded). I recall their saying Leesburg and The Villages.
