Moved to Tampa in 1979.

Weather watcher. Had property in Key Largo during Andrew. Lucked out. Kendall, Perrine, Homestead, Key Biscayne obliterated.
Still a weather watcher. First time evacuee.
Sold the manse and bought a nearby condo with a tenant.
Just got back to daughter's ranch with vintage Airstream after fabulous conversations in Northeast.
First time evacuee.
Long road out of Florida especially when everyone wants out. Got out today with only one back up.
Managed to 31.9635° N, 83.7824° W.
1000 utility repair and tree trimming trucks on I 75 South today.
Seen them before, but not as a first time evacuee.
Much rain in the ground around Tampa Bay.
Watery root systems don't hold so well.
Tidal surge expected of 3' to 5' with 10 to 15 inches of rain.
Insurance crisis precedes this inundation. Companies demand new roofs to be insured and many say they've had enough of the fraud.
Large increases in premiums to accelerate if even offered.
I've been paying attention and am a first time evacuee.
