Exhilarating footage.    I see several puddles of water still standing so I'm assuming you got quite a bit of rain following the hurricane or tropical storm.

The hurricane didn't give the valley any spectacular performance as it did in other counties but well wanted cooling period for sure.

At least you got some cooling off, better than nothing I suppose.

I'm with you on hoping it's the last heatwave.  I'm a bit tired of the sweltering heat we've been having.  On the other hand I don't want a hurricane to have to come through Florida to cool things off either.

Seems we only have one to worry about now.  Still, that's one too many.  Want know the exact path for another day or two so only nature knows what course it will take.

I may well have to do that.   I've used conformal loctite on other electronics but never thought about using the coating.

oh all the new iflight stuff is conformal coating, disclaimer "not waterproof just protected" not meant for submersive, sounds like the titan sub lol.  

I thought about applying rain-X on the o3 unit to avoid water drops to adhering to the lens
Looks like florida is going to get hit by a category 3 hurricane, not sure water is the top priority might be wise to see how to fight against those 130mph winds lol

Yeah, the forecast is looking quite foreboding for sure.  Time to hunker down.

Thanks.  We are having 45-50 mph winds with gusts to the low 60s, lots and I mean torrential rain, quite a bit of storm surge.  Bad thing about the storm surge is it is hitting close to high tide so that is exacerbating the issue.  So far my mini_yacht is bouncing up and down a bit but nothing she can't handle.  I just gave the mooring lines a bit more slack to allow for the ups and downs due to the surge and tides combining.  Should prove to be a long night.

Yes, I'm in the southern part of Florida.  We mostly got storm winds and storm surge.  Northern Florida was definitely not as lucky.  Lots of devastation in the area around Perry, Florida.
