Well, the tropical storm coming into the gulf is apparently generating a lot of severe thunderstorms and  knocking out power in a lot of places to the south of here. It is also apparently causing a significant chance of tornadoes and we have a 50% chance of seeing a tornado here in this area It's 2:33 and the squalls are supposed to hit around 3 and last till 6 pm with gusts up to 50mph. While the power is still working, and I still have internet access, I thought I'd share a few more shots from south Florida.

 

The rivers in the area are in flood stage from all of the rain from the last few weeks, so a lot of the dirt roads in the woods around the rivers and swamps are a little soggy and up over my hubs in some places.

My go-to gear in this area has been my snake boots, and the “mini-kit” I've built around a TOPS machete and the two large utility pouches on the sheath. I have it rigged up with an improvised bladric set up using some paracord for now. Since I usually have another knife on my belt as well on my right side I carry the machete on my left side and I like how it draws from there.

I haven't typically been a machete fan. I like the thickness of the Ontario machetes but hate the plastic handles and carppy rivets of the ones I have. Most other commercially available machetes are too thin to suit me. I am really liking this one so far. I really like the thickness, I love the handle, it feels great, handles well, and I really like how it cuts.

Lots of them here, best to pay attention or you end up with one on your face and an accelerated heart rate.
