My sister and my sister in law both have winter homes there.
They are both up north still. They usually go down in November. My sister has a caretaker looking after the property.
I'm not sure if my sister in law does too. She is in a gated community and has year rounders take care f the gardening clean up and stuff. They have hurricane shutters and it's a new house so hurricane ready.
Good luck. Are you staying?

Looking at the current map.... you have TS Nicole forming due east of Michael.
Interesting the way this could play out.
Especially if it does a loop and heads back west at the bottom end of it. That would be a double whammy for Florida.
But what do I know.
Could you imagine a major metro area like Miami-Dade getting side swiped by a cat 4 storm that dumps tons of rain and wind damage, only to have that same storm diverted back into a direct hit on the metro area..... what a catastrophic storm that would be.

I just saw the path of this thing and it's going to do DAMAGE and people who aren't leaving could be hurt en mass. This looks terrible for the Southern US East Coast, and it might going around and then come back for a 2nd pass.
This is an absolutely catastrophic storm - get the hell out if you're there!
Full force, it may increase to CAT 4, with winds exceeding 120 MPH. That's CRAZY!
I've never seen anything like this, this could be worse than Katrina. Florida has a lot of lowland and the possibility of flooding.

Cuz being prepared is dumb unless it's an election year.
Matthew is a slow moving storm. That means the wind is not just strong, it means it will last a while. That means not just rain, it means it will last a while.
I'm working at disney right now, they're closing for the first time since Andrew I. 05 and before that it was 911 I believe.
The media is really hyping up this storm. Must have been a long time since Florida was grazed by a CAT 3 or 4 Hurricane?
