I wonder where the Clunns are

Electric Vehicle Discussion List mailing list
I've heard Crystal River is under an evacuation order.  Even though most
houses in the area are on the ground, the Clunn house is on stilts.
They may have decided to stick it out.

In what part of the state does Jerry Dycus live?

                                Hi Willy and All,

                                             I'm 4 miles east  of Tampa Bay, close or at ground zero as the track presently is and where the max winds will be, the dangerous quadrant .   I'm at 52' and immune to flooding, can't get deeper than 2" and only until the downpour keeps up a 4"/hr rate for a while as either soak into the sand or run slightly downhill. and as an old Florida boy, I know better.
                                             But likely over 100mph winds so I already signed into a cat 5 shelter and have other options too.
                                             My place, 63 Vette body, chassis, workshops, etc can't though.
                                             I'm boarded up, packed but will wait until things get over 45mph steady then hit the shelter for about 10 hrs, and get back once wind go down to 50mph.  
                                           The Clunns are  in low lying like most all of that area in a mandatory evacuation zone I believe the whole county is under.  
                                             I have an old friend living a couple miles from them on higher land and he is leaving east.
                                            And close to the coast and good  possibility can get hit by 100mph+ winds and  the surge  if the present course verifies after the storm passes.  Most it'll depend on the forward speed as it takes time for the winds to build up the surge but presently say 12-15' in their area.  
                                           And the massive rains that might happen can bring the flood from inland.
                                           All up if it stays at 120mph + just offshore putting the most dangerous winds right on the coastal areas most densely populated and the most time to make the surge, damage will be extensive losing maybe 25% of homes, buildings and literally changing the coastline      .
                                          Taking out whole islands, losing 200-500' of coast/beaches  with our most expensive properties is likely if it goes as they say.
                                           The first feeder bands are coming through Tampa now but they are mostly just good rain storms.
                                              It just hit the Keys with 130mph winds so likely will be little left for 40 miles likely taking out the only road, US1 for weeks, months even.
                                            Let's hope it speeds up and veers west but the just make it bad for others on the upper gulf coast.     We'll survive but is going to take a lot to put it back together.  I'll do fine as I can rebuild fairly fast, low cost if needed, even better.
                                         My big worry and interestingly protects us is I live in an old oak forest that protects us from winds until they fall down, which is the major reason I'm not staying home in the worse part in case they do.
                                        All our trees take out the powerlines like in Charlie a weaker storm that hot me with 75mph winds and took out put with 3 hot miserable days of listening to generators.  Likely it'll be days, even a week longer.  Last time I just used my lightweight EV's to supply my power and almost ran out just when the power came back on.   I had a set up wit 7-11 to recharge my EVs I normally used for extending my 40 mile range but didn't need it.
                                         Now I have solar, batteries so no problem for me.
                                         Going to be an interesting 24 hours.  
                                                                            Jerry Dycus

we left Cape Coral tuesday for Maryland, 10-15ft storm surge anticipated in Fort Myers/Naples, may or, may not have house. if lucky boat will sink in canal and protect from other boats coming up canal. will have to throw all food away from fridge.

Re: I wonder where the Clunns are

I've seen 300-350 battery amps routinely from good 6v golf car batteries.  
There's a reason that 1980s converters used 400a controllers in their 96-
120v golf car battery conversions.

If your batteries have been on a "maintainer" for 2 years, there's a good
chance that they now have significant positive grid corrosion from
overcharging.  That will cause increased internal resistance and thus lower
peak power.

Unless you're using them in a standby power system, and maybe not even then,
batteries in storage are better off being cycled periodically (say every 1-3
months), not left on float chargers to rot.  The higher their specific
energy (meaning higher SG electrolyte), the more they suffer from grid
corrosion.

PS - I wouldn't call most cars or pickups with 16 golf car batteries "lead
sleds."  To deserve that label, the EV should have something near or over
50% of its weight in batteries.  

One infamous lead sled example was Robert Aronson's Mars IIs.  They were
tiny, flyweight Renault R10s converted with 20 (!) batteries.  Some of their
body seams literally opened up from the battery weight after 8-10 years. Bob
Rice (RIP), who I'm pretty sure helped build the Mars II cars, described
them as  "elepants on roller skates."

                                     Hi Willy and All,

                                            We did well as luckily Irma went inland earlier lowering it's power from insane to manageable for me east  Tampa ..
                                             Only 2 fences fell thought a lot of water damage but overall not bad.  Lost power last night at 6:45 pm so went though the night so now the power is back on in the last 30 minutes luckily.  Still 500k without power in just my county.
                                                They are saying it hit me dead on the eye's center with 100mph+.   But I went to sleep at 9pm as no TV, internet even with my 12vdc system so I'll have to make the TV and internet modem work on 12vdc though more likely to buy a pure sine wave inverter after
 this and go offgrid.
                                             Things could have been far worse had it stayed just offshore and kept it's full strength.
                                              Things should be better at the Clunns 50 miles north of me who looks like also got hit by the eye.  Let's hope they are ok as trees are the biggest danger..
                                              The chassis mold got wet for the   63 Vette so I might have to do it again if it warps but that is easy.
                                                            Jerry Dycus

     Hi Willy and All,
 
          
                
                
    I'm 4 miles east  of Tampa Bay, close or at
 ground zero as the track presently is and where the max
 winds will be, the dangerous quadrant .   I'm at 52'
 and immune to flooding, can't get deeper than 2" and only
 until the downpour keeps up a 4"/hr rate for a while as
 either soak into the sand or run slightly downhill. and as
 an old Florida boy, I know better.
          
                
                
    But likely over 100mph winds so I already signed
 into a cat 5 shelter and have other options too.
          
                
                
    My place, 63 Vette body, chassis, workshops, etc
 can't though.
          
                
                
    I'm boarded up, packed but will wait until things
 get over 45mph steady then hit the shelter for about 10 hrs,
 and get back once wind go down to 50mph.   
          
                
                  The
 Clunns are  in low lying like most all of that area in
 a mandatory evacuation zone I believe the whole county is
 under.   
          
                
                
    I have an old friend living a couple miles from them
 on higher land and he is leaving east.
          
                
                
   And close to the coast and good  possibility can
 get hit by 100mph+ winds and  the surge  if the
 present course verifies after the storm passes.  Most
 it'll depend on the forward speed as it takes time for the
 winds to build up the surge but presently say 12-15' in
 their area. 
          
                
                  And
 the massive rains that might happen can bring the flood from
 inland.
          
                
                  All
 up if it stays at 120mph + just offshore putting the most
 dangerous winds right on the coastal areas most densely
 populated and the most time to make the surge, damage will
 be extensive losing maybe 25% of homes, buildings and
 literally changing the coastline      .
          
                
                
 Taking out whole islands, losing 200-500' of
 coast/beaches  with our most expensive properties is
 likely if it goes as they say.
          
                
                  The
 first feeder bands are coming through Tampa now but they are
 mostly just good rain storms.
          
                
                
     It just hit the Keys with 130mph winds so
 likely will be little left for 40 miles likely taking out
 the only road, US1 for weeks, months even.
          
                
                
   Let's hope it speeds up and veers west but the just
 make it bad for others on the upper gulf coast.   
  We'll survive but is going to take a lot to put it back
 together.  I'll do fine as I can rebuild fairly fast,
 low cost if needed, even better.
          
                
                My big
 worry and interestingly protects us is I live in an old oak
 forest that protects us from winds until they fall down,
 which is the major reason I'm not staying home in the worse
 part in case they do.
          
                
               All our
 trees take out the powerlines like in Charlie a weaker storm
 that hot me with 75mph winds and took out put with 3 hot
 miserable days of listening to generators.  Likely
 it'll be days, even a week longer.  Last time I just
 used my lightweight EV's to supply my power and almost ran
 out just when the power came back on.   I had a set up
 wit 7-11 to recharge my EVs I normally used for extending my
 40 mile range but didn't need it.
          
                
                Now I have
 solar, batteries so no problem for me.
          
                
                Going to
 be an interesting 24 hours.
