Ew. Uthanatos, don't come to Florida. It's not a fun place right now.

And thanks, Arnaya. C: We're no strangers to hurricanes and Tropical storms. Growing up in Puerto Rico kind of made me a bit desensitized to it, so I'm morbidly amused at everyone freaking out here. We'll try to give updates as often as friends and family want. It doesnt look like where my city is will take a direct hit, but thr storm is definitely big and will make an impact. News sources can't seem to make up their minds on weather or not landfall is Sunday or Monday.

Sorry for the notice everyone, but Coraal will also very likely be MIA for the next few days thanks to the lovely arrival of our unwelcome houseguest, Irma. I have lived in Florida all of my life so hurricanes and other weather related nastiness is par for the course at this point. I am really hoping Irma decides at the last minute that the prices of tourism in Florida are really just too high for her fixed income and she decides to head north and back out to sea, but we are keeping our fingers crossed either way.

For those of you in the state of Florida, the Caribbean, or along either the Gulf or Atlantic coasts....my thoughts, hopes, and prayers go out to you and your families. Please be safe, make sure you have the supplies you need if you are riding out the storm, and a solid evacuation plan in place should it come to that.

Heading out now to report to base (work for an airline...yay! Not) to see what my own role will be in the coming days. In retrospect maybe it really would have been a better option to look for real estate in Lightless, huh? I can't imagine a storm affecting them too much down there =D.

Take care dreamers, and I'll see you as soon as I can.

Be safe you three, my thoughts are with you. You're better than me, I'd be a nervous wreck! Never seen/experienced a hurricane before myself. Though I've been through tornadoes and earthquakes!

Earthquakes would be terrifying in the Lightless :P

From south Louisiana...

We would often play mud football during tropical storms. Like nature's slip 'n slide. This one seems super evil though. Let us know if you are in a bad way. I know a few others in the area (Tampa, Orlando, Pensacola) that would help.

We are a community, after all.

"Remember how we said you have no work Thursday and Friday? Yeah... Forget about that. We need you in at 7am." "To do what exactly? Buillding is already prepared for the hurricane. "Just be here." I seriously don't understand my workplace, but I do know that I hate the management. Hopefully the weather isn't too bad on my way too and from work the rest of this week and then I can just kick back and relax (fat chance, Super Anxiety Woman!) and wait for the storm to pass.

Power is out here. No idea when it will be back. Data hardly works, so no more Discord for now. No Wi-Fi, obviously. The transformer on the pole in our back yard is just kind of dangling and being slammed into the pole over and over again... It's awful to hear it. Besides that, everything is fine with us. We hope to have power back by Wednesday.

Well, the power was restored a lot sooner than predicted, so that's awesome. Work starts again tomorrow. Dimitri is being sent away for disaster relief. The only damage was one screen blew out of the lanai. Our house is covered in leaves and dirt. Ew.

Now we get to put every bit of worry on Coraal. My side of Florida got lucky, his didn't.

Spotty power and cell outages here and there today, otherwise he is safe and sound.

Glad you and yours are alright Hael, will pray for Dimitri on disaster relief.

That takes a weight off my chest! We were having a conversation and I didn't get anything back the past few days. I know Tampa tends to flood. I'm glad he's alright. My cellphone was pretty much useless too. Still is a little bit.

Dimitri wanted me to say that they're talking that disaster relief may be in Fort Meyers for two weeks, possibly more... So He's sorry that he may not be able to be IG for a while again. It seems just when we get stuff going something happens in our lives. Lol

Hey everyone! Wanted to take a moment to say thank you for all the well wishes and prayers. Came through the storm not losing power once (my neighborhood went underground power lines after the last major storm) and internet was restored today. Cell service is still crap but that's expected considering tower damage. I am glad to see that others affected by Irma also made it through alright. Hael, please send Dimitri my well wishes and a swift recovery while he's helping with disaster relief. Hopefully he will be home again soon.

Special thanks to my Elmer: you sat up with me and talked me through the entire storm and the aftermath, constantly giving me reassurances that everything would be alright. I am SO beyond lucky to have such an amazing, wonderful, and caring person in my life. I will always be beyond grateful and honored that you chose me. Love you so much.

Alright, that's my update. See you all dreaming!

I used to live in an area with underground power. I miss it. The underground power, not the neighborhood. Lol

They keep changing the amount of days. One moment it's a lower number, the next it's a higher number, but I'll tel him. C:

I'm glad all is well with you and thank you so much for the update!

After the weekend I'll be heading out on a road trip for a few days, I'll have my laptop but likely won't be in game too much.
Also was asked to pass it on that poppygirl will also be away for a couple weeks.

Got a few minutes to myself. Power to the region is being restored slowly. Once they get the grid back up, the curfew can be lifted and civic order restored, then we can rotate back home. It's been relatively quiet other than a few small scale riots at gas stations and someone taking shots at us while we were standing at the command center for briefing the other night. We got power restored to the hotel we've been bunking in, so we have AC and hot showers to return to, but these 14 hour days are draining. I'll be back as soon as I can.

So... I was fired today. Yet again, Hael sightings will be few while I start the ever dreaded job hunt again. Hopefully I can find a job quickly and I can get my life back in order.

Hael won't be in from today to the 12th. Neither will Dimitri. One of the biggest days of our lives is finally going to be here tomorrow and we won't have internet while we're celebrating. C:
