  1. We were without power and water for over 2 weeks after hurricane Michael hit us last Oct. No landline or Verizon phone service or internet for months.
  2. I know this is funny, however, I have been a State Farm customer since I turned 18 and bought my first car in 1967, since then , more and more cars, trucks, boats, 2 homes and they have been there for me if I needed them. When Hurricane Michael hit us on Oct.10, 2018, I filed a claim and immediately we had 2 adjusters come to our house and spend over 4 hours assessing our damages. In a few weeks we received 1 check to get started buying tarps and things to protect our property and in another week or two, we received a very large check to start repairing and replacing, then as projects got repaired or replaced we sent the completed invoice and was reimbursed for the actual cash value, no depreciation . Also got checks for the Toyota truck and the Hyundai Sonata. We got contents check also, My She Shed was split in half , so I got a new She Shed for $10,000 built on my property. I am 71 years old and will probably die being a State Farm customer, Insert other media.url
  3. Thank you! People have been lied too, scammed and more . That is why we are only using local contractors that are licensed, and insured.
  4. N0. I was on a cruise ship once and we left Cozumel late afternoon, everything was fine and later that night cruising the waters got really rough and everybody was throwing up and the lobby was full of people who couldn't stay in their rooms. I have a video of it. Babies can't talk to you and they might be in pain. The norovirus is very contagious also.
  5. We live 100 miles west of Tallahassee. You are right, even Calhoun and Liberty counties which are east of us, but west of you were damaged . My niece lives in Calhoun county and they have acres and acres of property and they lost hundreds of pine trees.
  6. Thank you! Fema is still picking up hurricane debris and it has been almost 11 months. So many people lost everything and moved away, so county had to close 3 schools. We had no power or water (city water) for over 2 weeks. We bought a generator and survived with bottle water for everything. The worst was taking a shower and shampooing your hair with a water bottle. A few merchants have repaired or rebuilt but the county is only about 30% rebuilt.
  7. Thank you! So do we, as it still looks like a war zone. About 6 miles west of us is beautiful, they still have trees, we have none.
  8. Hi everyone, I live in Panama City, Fl. (850-Strong). On Oct. 10, 2018 we stayed in our home and rode out Hurricane Michael, a category 5. It took us 5 months before we could get a roof back on our home. We live on a cul-de-sac and when we walked out of our home, we didn't recognize our neighborhood. I have lived here all my life and never experienced a hurricane like Michael, so folks I don't believe Coco Cay will reopen for a very long time. We just got our Motorhome out of the repair shop, it had over $18, 000 damage from the hurricane. We lived in it with blue tarps over the entire MH until June, 2019. Our home is still not completely repaired, but we can live in some rooms, and we booked a cruise on Mariner for Sept. 23, 2019 last year before the storm hit us, and we probably will not be going to Coco Cay either. RCCL does their best to keep you safe, so if you book and your cruise doesn't go as planned, just be thankful they do what they think is best for your safety. We always buy insurance to protect us, and we had to use it in Sept.2017, we had to cancel our cruise out of Ft. Lauderdale, because the roads were blocked between the panhandle and there, we were going to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary, so we rebooked a cruise for October 21, 2018 and Hurricane Michael hit us on Oct. 10, 2018 and we couldn't leave our home because of all the damages, so again we are trying for Sept. 23, 2019. Our anniversary is Sept. 9th.
  9. I am trying to decide between Homewood Suites and Country Inn and Suites at Port Canaveral for the park and go package, so does any one have comments on their prior stays at either of these. The prices are not that much of a decision, just want the one that is the cleanest and parking on site and not leaving my key with them. Thanks for any suggestions. We live in Panama City, Fl., where Hurricane Michael hit on Oct. 10, 2018, so we need a vacation . We had to cancel the one for Oct. 21, 2018 to repair our home, car, truck and motorhome.
  10. Thanks everyone for the concerns for us. The governor just ordered more national guard troops to come here to help out. They have ordered mandatory evacuations now for 4 zones, my daughter's included. On top of all this stress, my sister just called me, and she lives alone and she called 911 and she is at the hospital with the flu and breathing problems. She didn't want anybody to know until now. I will go get her when they release her. Her husband passed away 6 years ago with cancer, our former cruise partners. Pray, pray for us, we are right in the target for landfall. We were just informed it will definitely be a high 3 or 4/5. The storm surge is on top of all this wind.:loudcry:
  11. We live in Panama City, Fl. and our daughter and son-in-law live at Panama City Beach, Florida, 2 blocks from the Gulf of Mexico, so we are preparing for Michael. Please keep everyone here in the panhandle of Fl. in your thoughts and prayers. My husband and I are supposed to sail on Oasis of the Seas on Oct. 21, 2018, that is if we don't have to cancel due to damages, insurance claims, roads and etc. We are driving down on the 20th if all goes well. Signed up for the roll call, passes done, etc., now just waiting on Michael to show its self.:mad:
