Admit I'm a tad envious, I almost wish Jose would come up along the coast, just enough to wash up whatever neat shells and cool stuff that might be out there to find.

Glad to hear it worked out, Katie, and that you found some awesome shells.

Yeah, I was about one minute away from making a Photoshop of Irma's face onto the hurricane, like the Steve Harvey meme that was going around when Harvey was happening. Stopped myself.

Yes. Harvey and Irma will be retired next year. This year they retire 2016 hurricanes Matthew and Otto. But there are cases, a hurricane is not retired despite the damage and loss of life it cause. An example: Hurricane Gordon (1994). He was catastrophic.

And unlike Andrew who affected one area of Florida, Irma affected many Floridian cities with her rain and howling winds. Key West is destroyed.

Good for you! I don't think no one would do a joke with your avatar, either. After all, your namesake Andrew destroyed South Florida 25 years ago.

Look what Irma kicked up out of the bottom of the Indian River, a dugout canoe. Florida State Dept of Historical Resources has been notified, they'll get back with me tomorrow, offices closed yesterday. ( a gentle reminder, this belongs to the people of Florida, and hopefully will be preserved and exhibited in the future) Thank you all for your interest! I got to it before it was picked up by the county with all the other storm debris and placed in a landfill.

I'd glad people are learning past mistakes with hurricanes, I know what happened with hurricane Andrew I think that's the name of it back in the 90s, sounds like you guys were more prepared this time.

Hurricane Harvey was pretty bad too, hope Trump does just as much to help them like what he did for Texas.

He was going to visit Naples today and I'm sure he will do all he can to help them out.
