L. Peter how are you I'm good dry I hope you all in all your family well after the storm. I gotta tell you take a look at the images out of the Bahamas thank god this storm did what the forecast at a doing it took that turn to the north because just complete devastation very reminiscent of what we saw in the panhandle last year with hurricane Michael. we've been blessed to get down the Bahamas so many times especially Disney's castaway cay which has been in the news a little bit because Disney left some of its workers there on purpose and I gotta say it's probably one of the nicest places on earth probably from the warmest people on earth it is a vacation hot spot because of all the reasons like that and that's what makes it even more heartbreaking is seen very very good people suffer through this with really. are you look at it with the category five us is reading the New York times article IV they just got thirty six hours yeah hello yeah I mean that's you know hurricane Michael for all the damage he did it it moves through the panhandle but to have Dorian stall over the Bahamas like that with that intensity just unbelievable let's talk about leadership here in the state of Florida because one thing that that you know when the storms make their way in an impact a state like here in Florida leadership is is where the focus is how do you think the governor and cabinet have done so far their first big storm to deal with aside from CFO Jimmy Petron this is been around for for previous storms but talking about governor to Santissima tenet governor Attorney General actually moody and and agriculture commissioner Nikki for you. yeah hurricane are like the big reset button on Florida politics and whatever you thought before about a Florida politician it's very different after a hurricane it's just the one unifying event like that and so whatever we thought of raw understand disaster movies or hand it's probably enhanced more so today the Santis HK's windbreaker.
