For those that don't know, I'm a police dispatcher for Manatee County, between Sarasota and Tampa.


With the pending storm now aiming directly for us, we are being activated. I'm responding to work tonight at 7pm and will not be leaving until potentially Wednesday morning.



The only thing missing in this pic is my air mattress and pillow. We will be at the EOC for an undetermined amount of time.



I have officially left my home and all my belongings, including Lobo. I won't know what happens until its all over.





As a newer supervisor with a very young staff, neither I nor them have handled a similar situation and I made sure to get extra snacks, necessary items, utensils, and medication as I have a feeling some may forget items or underestimate the situation.



In this time of uncertainty, everyone wishes that we be safe. Thanks to my job I will be in one of if not the safest building in town. Its our responders and our citizens I'm concerned about.



We're going to get through this storm. I know the quality of everyone I work with and know that the county is in great hands.


Wish us luck friends.

Safe and sound. It shifted East and didn't hit us directly and it downgraded to a 2.

I'm released from work. On my way home to check things and sleep before going back to work tonight.

Everything is fine at home. No signs of flooding or leak, power is out but Miata is still broken but perfect otherwise.

Glad you're safe. I was in the middle of the desert and didn't have any service for a week. Time to do some googling
