7:20 AM in Miami
Yes, we stayed in Miami during Irma. I’m crazy.
I’m two blocks from Biscayne Bay; the above is what we can see now.
The wind is picking up and rain is off and on (when it’s “on,” all you see is white). The building sways a bit — 2-3″ back and forth — from the wind, which is hard to fathom. I can actually feel it moving right now. The building will remain standing.
We still have power and hot water; precautions have been made in the case we lose either or both.
We have a lot of non-perishable food and several neighbors who’ve stuck around to ride the storm out here as well.
Just want you to know things are good here as of now.
