VDH WILL BE CLOSED

Tue Sep 05, 2017 8:47 pm

While I shuffle everything around in preparation for a visit from Irma. By doing so I hope to ward it off and hopefully it will come to nothing!

I'll update here, Facebook, Twitter etc.

God Bless You All,

My wife and my house on North Padre Island in Corpus Christi were very, very lucky. The CAT 4 shitbird known as "Harvey" went 15 miles north of the city and we only got some wind damage and some flooding in the back sunroom due to rain overload. That said, Rockport and other small towns are catastrophic and lets not mention Houston or Galveston! My wife rightfully evac'd to my Aunt's house over in Kerrville 200 miles to the WNW two days before landfall and waited out the imbroglio until power was restored to the island. Good neighbors who got back earlier reported all was well with the exception of a flipped and cracked boat trailer and some fence damage. Winds on the island had reached a sustained rate of 115 mph, with gusts up to 155. My builder, Sean Seaquist told me when I bought the place that it was designed to withstand 160 mph winds. I guess he was right. Be careful and even though you are on the west coast of FL, , don't take any chances with this bitch "Irma"! The upper panhandle or southern Alabama or Georgia sounds nice. Maybe an unplanned trip to the quarries in Ohio would be good. Stay safe and God Bless!

I hate it when that happens.

Happens all the time with tornados. Just a matter of time before it happens in a hurricane. Fortunately, there is a US Government commissioned manual on the subject. And you thought your tax dollars were being wasted on frivolous programs. :D

UPDATE.....Thinks are looking a little better for us here and I appreciate all the kind words. As soon as the storm passes I'll get the store back open for orders and process them as quickly as possible. As you can imagine I have everything that was outside on the inside and all my hurricane supplies were moved from storage to my work space.....Thanks for your patience and support and please keep thinking good thoughts for all our friends in South Florida and The Keys as it's going to get really bad really quick.

Lots of you asked for more service tools and supplies and I have them in route to me but shipment is delayed till Thursday. I have some other items that were delayed as well so once the store is open check back on the inventory as it will change quickly.
Decision on Hollywood Argonaut Krakens is due next Wednesday so hopefully I'll have some to sell for those that have been waiting.

Things took a turn for the worse late last night and now Irma looks like it will pass almost directly over us here in Wesley Chapel. We are bunker ed down the best we can be and will be riding it out here. Keep thinking positive thoughts for all of us here in Florida.
