Yes, we are prepared for the worst. Expected 10-12' storm surge. I live at 18' above sea level, but the storage location for the '65 was only at 10' above sea level. Fortunately, a very good friend of mine, who owns Vetteworks Restorations here in St. Pete, let me store the '65 in his shop, which is at about 28' above sea level. Now it looks like the storm has turned inland earlier than predicted, and we are still getting a lot of wind and rain, but not the eye of the storm. So far so good, but it hasn't really reached us yet.
