    I hauled a bunch of pistols and long guns into my Dad's house in Brooksville today, along with my motorcycle and airboat.

    The pontoon boat is out of the water at the marina I do business with in Hernando Beach, well tied off so it can go up and down with the storm surge if necessary.

    I hope you guys are safe during the high wind stage and storm surges. Your residence is certainly high and dry but your reloading area may be at risk.

    Yep.

    I hauled all the reloading components, press and dies, over to the higher place.

    When I evac'd to B'ville, I hauled several hundred pounds of ammo along.

    It took two days to board up the place and haul everything into town on Friday and Saturday.

    We made two trips on Monday getting everything back, and I just finished getting everything back into place a little before 6:PM today.

    I was glad to do so, as it was much better than what could have happened (and what we were expecting).

    I still have to get the motorcycle back home, and I'll do that when the vet in Brooksville get their power back on, and reopens, as I need to get some dog pills from them.

    We got our power back on at 6:20 PM yesterday, but my Dad who lives north of Brooksville is still living off the genny.

    We were able to get groceries at Publix today, and get gas, though all they was regular unleaded. It's not the recommended fuel for the hemi's, but they can run on it.
