Default Central Florida guys, you alright?

Just woke up to news of a bad storm out there in Cen Florida and know that we have a few peeps from out there. Hell the news probably made it sound like 15,000 times worse than it was, but wtf if im up at 5:45 because of fucked up dreams im going to god damn post something.

The ground is a little wet...
Watching the news is like voluntarily having someone spoon feed you ****.

But thanks for asking

some people died, but what the hell do you expect when you buying a ******* trailor home in FL? Hurricanes and tornadoes are not mobile home park friendly but people still don't seem to get the message.

It was windy as hell and rained a bunch here, nothing out of the ordinary really

Most of the damage was east of Orlando, where I live. Lots of damage in Deland and New Smyrna Beach, where I used to live.

I do damage estimates for FEMA, so that makes me an expert on mobile homes.

Looking at today's news I find that most of the damage and casualties were west of Orlando, in Lake county. So I guess it hopped over us. Most of the homes that were destroyed were mobile homes, altho some site built homes were severely damaged. A steel framed church was leveled. In the pictures you can see the I beams twisted like pretzels.

Supposedly that church was built to withstand 150mph winds. Must have been some idol worship goin' on in there
