    Hurricane Irma is currently 400 miles across. Currently the projected the path for Irma is following the Gulf Coast of Florida then most of the state until the panhandle will still feel the effects of the storm.



    Stay safe everyone. Our thoughts here in the Houston area are with you!

    We are now in SC driving to FL. Our home in Davenport is still without any power and word is it will remain the same until midnight this Sunday. I don't think there will be much damage, if any, but we won't actually know until we get there later today. If anything, we heard it will have been caused by the winds and we may luck out and only have some tiles missing on the roof. I called DVC this morning and we were able to get 2 nights at Boulder Ridge for tonight and tomorrow night but there's no availability for Saturday night. So, I called to see if any availability in a moderate resort and was able to get Caribbean Resort for Saturday night. They also waived the $95 processing fee for converting my points to cash when I mentioned I needed a place to stay because of Irma. Thought that was very nice of them. Good thing I previously had booked BLT and The Boardwalk or we could be in trouble. Will be staying in Florida until October 7th now. My husband is supposed to go to the Patriots/Tampa game on October 5th.
