Two hospitals were being evacuated to locations farther north. There are nine hospitals in Lee County that the state is looking at to determine whether or not they are going to be able to get the water restored to them or whether or not they are going to have to be evacuated.Stay safe, everyone. My wife's 90 year old grandmother is in a hospital in Fort Myers (she was there for a blood pressure issue and they kept her there due to the storm). She's been in Florida for over 40 years and couldn't care less about another storm. She's outlived 3 of her 6 children, her husband, and all of her siblings. She's as tough as she is stubborn!
For all of you with reef tanks, I hope you are well prepared. Harvey made it's initial landfall about 15 miles from my house. I was well prepared with a generator, etc. But my window unit a/c that I bought specifically for power outtages, died on me. I was HEAVILY invested (well into 5 figures) in the hobby and lost far more than I would like to mention... more than I even want to think about, lol. I was about 15 years into the hobby at the time and very seriously considered getting out. Glad I didn't, this hobby is like therapy for me. It keeps me sane. Once again, good luck to all of you in Ian's path. I hope that you, your loved ones, and your tanks all make it through this well.
WWC services several reef systems here in The Villages. Still working to see if I can find out who they are and maybe get a local club going.I have no clue lol
I highly doubt there’s many villagers with reef tanks however I’m not a true villager as I work for the villages. Not a retiree yet.
