    Yeah, quite a task to get the Fisher fleet protected, but it gave me a chance to dust them off.

    Happy you, the family, and the gear made it thru in good shape. My sister is in Tallahassee and she's up for it next.

    I had been switching through my X-1000, 1800, and X-202B the past month or so listening to vinyl, last night I decided to use my X-202, it's amazing how good these amps are paired with Cornwall's. Still my favorite!

    So glad you, your home, and your equipment came through the storm OK, Steve! We had plentiful rain all day yesterday, but the heavy wind and rain really didn't really reach us until about 7:00 PM last night. No damage, and never totally lost power, but it was blinking on and off so much that for all intents and purposes, the power was gone. Computers couldn't get restarted before it would blink off again, and the frig stayed in overload virtually all night. The biggest utility issue though has been the Internet, the connection of which has been more off than on numerous times over the past 24 hours -- but hopefully, it is all stabilizing now. Prayers and best wishes for all who were affected by the storm. My encounter was simply one of inconvenience -- pretty darn lucky compared to so many........

    We lost power from 5:30 PM Sunday until 4:00 PM Monday, looks like winds reached 83 mph here. Power is still out all around us though, feeling pretty blessed at the moment. I have been helping neighbors put their fences back up and clear the downed trees, nothing like giving back to those in need. Those without power down here, I really feel for them, the heat and humidity are too much right now. This is the first time I can remember getting heat rash since I was a kid, Sunday night was no fun trying to sleep here, hope everyone else gets power back soon.

    For future possible flooding events , vacuum sealing bags would be the best way to preserve your electronics and photos , then place the in a cabinet up high that is secure to a wall , or a good metal or plastic cooler chained so they can float but not escape . Also add some silicon gel pack for long time storage .

    What a relief. That would have been a serious hit to the Fisher population.
