Welcome To Hurricane Season 2017!!!

June 1, 2017

Today starts the official beginning of hurricane season.  In the past few years, if you follow the dribble that I write, I have instructed you over and over again about hurricane preparedness (supplies to purchase and trees to trim, etc.).  I will not bore you with that again because you will be inundated with info […]

STAY AWAY MATT, JUST STAY AWAY

September 29, 2016

This has been a very quiet hurricane season with not much for me to write about – which I know makes a lot of you very happy…not to say that I blame you for that.  But now all of a sudden we are threatened by Matthew, a very fast moving storm that will definitely be […]

WE DODGED ANOTHER BULLET!

June 7, 2016

We here in SoFlo dodged another bullet.  Even tho Colin has not turned into a hurricane, it has dropped lots and lots of water north of us. Certainly the people that live in the Tampa Bay area know if their roof has any leaks by now, for sure!!!!  This is just another reminder to be prepared […]

FOOLED AGAIN!!!!

August 31, 2015

Thank God for small favors.  We were spared the wrath of the scorned woman named Erica.  We got lucky….real lucky.  Well, that’s the first trial run for 2015 hurricane season.  All of you that were panicking because you did not have enough hurricane supplies stashed away will have possibly another chance coming in the next […]

ERICA, O ERICA, WHERE ART THO GOING TO STRIKE?

August 25, 2015

It would appear as if we are not going to completely escape the onslaught of orange masses on the radar this time.  ERICA looks as if she is going to pay a visit to lovely SOFLO some time early next week.  I sincerely hope that I am wrong, however as a state certified roofing contractor, I […]

JULY 16TH AND STILL NO THREATS…..HOW GREAT IS THIS?

July 16, 2015

Wow, not even a hint of a storm.  Ain’t that great!!!!  Let’s hope it stays that way.  Things in the construction business, such as roofing, are going rather well – and we do not need a hurricane to cloud (pun intended) the blissful picture in SoFlo.  The only hurricanes we need are down in Coral Gables.  […]

JULY 1, 2015….

July 1, 2015

We in SoFlo have been extremely fortunate for the last 10 years.  No storms of any consequence.  Now we have made it through the first month of the 2015 hurricane season with nary a strong wind, except for 2 days ago in parts of Broward County.  We need rain badly, but just a few downpours […]

HERE WE GO AGAIN!!!!

May 28, 2015

Yep, it hardly seems possible, but it is hurricane season again.  This means that I get to gratify myself with my yearly hurricane dribble.  Some of what I write, however, is useable.  My knowledge is from 40 (ouch!) years of roofing experience.  Wow, I can’t believe what I just wrote!!  It’s been 40 years since […]

LOTS AND LOTS OF RAIN FOR SOUTH FLORIDA….IS THIS AN OMEN?

June 24, 2014

It’s been a while since I’ve written anything…some would say “thank God for that”, but I really have nothing to report on of any consequence.  It is extremely early in the season for anything of  significance to happen, however the weather we HAVE been having has been a little extreme, even for this time of […]

It’s getting closer…..

April 23, 2013

It’s the end of April and we Floridians should all be thinking about what starts to happen as we get to the end of May…..THE BIG BAD HURRICANE SEASON BEGINS!!!!  It is still early enough that we needn’t worry about any bad storms for awhile, but we HAVE had some rather severe thunderstorms recently.  1 or […]
