That's Bob...Always willing to help others :thumbs:
:ROFL: :ROFL: :ROFL:

I have a feeling Bob is sitting in a dark kitchen enjoying a can of cold spaghetti-o's by candlelight.

Seriously though, hope everyone made it through the storm with minimal damage. I was glad to hear that the storm really dwindled from what they were originally predicting.
Someday I'll finally be able to drive my Vette, but for now I'll just admire all the pieces... :willy:

Tell us about your Corvette: 1971 Coupe that's been in the family since new. Was "stored" in a shed in New England for 22 years. Even though I have limited knowledge and experience, I'm SLOWLY doing a body off restoration. Standby for many questions!

My brother lives just ESE of Tampa and stayed dry and powered throughout the whole episode. Seems like he really dodged the bullet. Hopefully Bob will have been as lucky.

Actually, we didn't get a lot of rain, just a LOT of wind. Thousands lost power, but we did not. My generator was ready to go, but we did not need it. It would have been really serious conditions for me to eat spaghetti-o's in any situation! :D

After the storm left, I only found 1 store open, and it was selling beer! :laugh:

Like I saw on Facebook:

Texas: It was the worst storm in history!

Florida: Hold my beer! :cheers:

You know I always wanted to see the refer/freezer boxes on the ships. I worked on base dining facilities and cold storage facilities so I know the layouts, just always wondered about the Navy's. It's not like you have a whole bunch of space.
