Florida is Bidding Hurricane Matthew a Fond Farewell

Hurricane Michael as of October 7, 2016

As you can see on the above image, the center of Hurricane Matthew is now near the Florida/Georgia border and a long way from Zephyrhills, Pasco County and Tampa. Though it has been breezy last night and today the winds were in no way scary. When I drove a round town I saw some SMALL branches and palm fronds in yards, but nothing big. And the rains were not much more than our regular summer showers that happen. Maybe an inch or so. As far as I know we had no power outages locally.

Perhaps there is some isolated damage caused by a localized wind condition, but no one I have spoken to has heard of it. So once again, Zephyrhills proves to be a safe harbor during storms like these. 

But be aware that our 2016 Hurricane Season will not end until the end of November. So things could still happen. But as the oceans start to cool down that is less likely. We will keep our fingers crossed and hope that once again we have had a safe year here!
