Port St Lucie and Northward bound
The boss released Handsome Hombre at 7:30 this evening. There will be no work tomorrow.
Handsome Hombre and Southern Belle are northward bound even as I type. They are currently passing through Port St Lucie and hope to drive for another hour and a half before knocking off for the night.
One of Southern Belle's frustrations is that the GPS keeps switching them between the Florida Turnpike and I-95 as accidents are reported. Consequently they lose time on surface streets traveling east or west when they could be moving north.
At 13 miles an hour Irma is moving about 300 miles a day. HH and SB will make about 140 miles tonight which will put them a little bit south of Orlando. Barring the unexpected they should make Atlanta in about ten driving hours from their overnight stay. Hopefully the traffic will thin out and the gasoline supplies will be plentiful.
I am delighted that HH and SB are out of South Miami and hightailing it for high ground.
