Update:

We were very fortunate as the storm lessened in strength from Category 4 to "only" a Category 2 and the eye remained 75 miles offshore sparing us from being exposed to the NW quadrant where the highest wind speeds are.  We did experience strong winds and heavy rains with some local flooding.  Our lakefront crept noticeably closer to the house but will recede in the next few days.  Life is returning to normal!

A Special Note From Jumpmaster:  There have been no updates since August 26th as it's been a tough week here.

  1. My wife had to have emergency surgery ... but she is finally home now and doing fairly well.

  2. A lightning strike fried my PC and home security system.

  3. Restoring backed up files to the new PC is proving to be a laborious task.

  4. The refrigerator also was damaged and all perishable and frozen items were lost

  5. Hurricane Dorian is threatening my home in Melbourne, Florida within the next 24 to 35 hours. House is shuttered up and yard is clear of anything that might get blown away.

  6. Finding replacement food and water with everyone stocking (hoarding?) supplies due to the hurricane threat created an issue, but I persevered and we won't starve.

  7. Possible loss of power as the hurricane passes may prevent update activity until service is restored. Hence, I cannot predict when the next update will be.

Other than that, life in the Sunshine State has been great!
