For Hillsborough, yes. But Pinellas County? If we have a cat 5 coming, I'd take my sweet time coming back if possible.
Main issue in Pinellas is all roads in are either a bridge or over lowlands that would probably be flooded and damaged in such a storm. Even north, Tarpon Springs would likely be significantly damaged from Anclote River Flooding, high likelihood of Gandy, CC and Howard Franklin approaches would be washed out or bridge damaged directly (ala Katrina), and Old Tampa Highway through Oldsmar goes across many wetlands and bridges as well. And it's also highly likely that Lake Seminole / Long Bayou would flood all the way to Old Tampa Bay / St Pete Airport.
So supplies would probably be tough to get into Pinellas (especially south of Ulmerton) at first, not to speak of repair crews and possible machinery replacement for freshwater and sewage and how long electric repairs would take.
Here's what a Cat 4 in Pinellas is predicted to look like. Lealman, Kenneth City and Disston Heights and maybe the Trop and part of Uptown/Allendale would be the only things dry.
You already live in a state with a relatively large degree of socialism compared to whatever free-market la-la-land the radical libertarians would have you believe is possible.
Any road that's not a toll road? Socialist.
Public education? Socialism (it's actually mentioned in the Communist Manifesto)
Income tax? Socialist.
Fire department? Ab-socialism-lutely.
Adam Smith, in The Wealth of Nations (1776), the tome on which much neoliberal capitalist economics is based, advocated for many of these "socialist" programs, recognizing that self-interest would lead to a highly imperfect nation. Socialism is not an epithet.

Is that the past-tense Friday (7/27) or the upcoming Friday (8/3)? If it's for next Friday I'll promote it on the FB page and see if any St. Pete people who watch the Tampa page wanna come to.
If it's 8/3/2012 please finalize the place and time.
Edit: Cafe Bohemia it is.

5% is a pretty damn high concentration.
Fellow EEs and electronic hobbiests can now make a low cost one of these:
~$500. I'm sure not nearly as robust as the stingray but the idea is the same; Spoof a GSM tower and allow nearby devices to connect to it. Middleman attack to scrape voice and data and/or perhaps some sort of tracking.
Ermatinger Hatters old skool ad - haha not sure why they had a store on one side of Central and 5th st and then another store on the other side of Central by 4th st.
Flutter is written in Dart.
I was new to Dart when i first got into Flutter 6 months ago.
I think any one that 'codes' can figure out Flutter's framework.
It can be an elegant language to design UI with that 'just works'.
And it has that cool "hot reload" feature that makes development so nice and easy.
Ha ha! I just went to Brittney at Hey Stella for the first time last Friday! I'm very happy. She also did a great job of evening out my eyebrows. >:) Hey Stella
has around 15 or taps last time I was there and its right beside corrigan's which has a nice selection of beer too.
I never downvoted you. Yes, I disagree that bitcoin mining can't be profitable.

nextdoor.com is also a great resource for buy/sell/free, you can get (or not) a few bucks for them and you'll at least have the feeling that someone is using them instead of ditching them.
No roof/attic access and/or residence is a Faraday cage? Window mounted patch antennas with amplifiers sometimes work acceptably in otherwise difficult locations. May be worth some trial & error on several different windows for best results approx $30 on Amazon.
If your WiFi is slow with neighbors moving in, you may be using the same channel as them.
In the US, 2.4GHz WiFi uses channels 1-12. The most common default channel (that I've seen) across router devices is 6. You can download a WiFi spectrum analyzer (like this one for Android) and see where yours stands relative to your neighbors. Pick a channel that no one else around you is using. 5GHz has a lot more channels (as it operates using spread/broad spectrum, and I don't have those memorized). The app I linked will show you those as well.
Not knowing your technical prowess, to change the channel, you'll have to log into the built-in web page of your WiFi router. Depending on the manufacturer, they'll have different default admin accounts (although "admin" with the password "admin" is pretty common--which you'll want to change for security). Somewhere on one of the pages, you'll find your WiFi settings, and you can choose what channel it uses. Don't mess with the Tx/Rx strengths or the other settings. If your router supports it, some have a check box for "auto" channel. This will let the router scan the airwaves around you, and pick the least noisy channel automatically.
Stupid technical tip: I prefer to use lower channels because they will permeate physical barriers just slightly better than higher frequencies. In the real world, this probably doesn't make a noticeable difference, but I can hope.
In case anyone's worried about being hit by one of these beauties, there's a book for that. (Read the reviews too, they're quite helpful!)
I got this one for the front of my house.
You may want to list the miles on your car and if you are referring to the front or back brakes. If you need just pads replaced you should pay less than 200 per axle. I just searched and found front brake pads and rotors for your car for 85.00 on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Replacement-Direct-Brake-Compatible-Rotors/dp/B009YM3PLG
Also Autozone has rotor and pad kit for 156.00 for the front axle. https://www.autozone.com/brakes-and-traction-control/performance-brake-pads-rotors-kit/p/powerstop-performance-brake-pads-rotors-kit-crk5382/1035799_0_0
I've had both; I swap back and forth; both have their shares of outages, but I found that to be more common with WoW.
Both are good w/ giving you your advertised speeds, but I would remember higher ping coming from WoW than spectrum
I pay for 400/20; just picked this up now on speedtest
Idc being a bit lower on download, the upload is pretty consistent though, I stream on twitch with a 6000kbps bitrate and have no issues whatsoever (and I stream 20+ hours a week)
It's a good question, one I've been wondering myself. I'm 45(m), single, and just moved to DTSP; the area is indeed very young downtown, especially towards the east end of DTSP. U of F St. Pete is right there and the alcohol flows down there.
As you get closer to the stadium along Central, the age goes up a bit. It seems (in my limited experience) that as you get closer to the water on the east, south, or west sides of STP, the age goes up and the "noise" goes down, much more passive.
After the holidays as I finish unpacking and settle in, I'll poke through Meetup.com and Facebook's Local app for social events to join, etc. And of course the dating apps are always an option too.
If you want to take matters into your own hands, there’s this stuff/gel. Looks like peanut butter. You put some under your sinks, in any wall ‘cracks’, around cabinets etc, and it will kill all of them. Takes maybe 3-4 weeks to kill everything, but it works. I had a problem a few years ago and after they were gone I spray occasionally with Demon WP around the foundation outside to keep them out.
I'd install my own meter and demand to only pay for what I use:
Water in St. Pete is pretty expensive.
I have the GE outdoor/attic one that sells for about $40. I bought 5 different antennas about 7 years ago and tried them in my living room. That one blew the others away. I mounted it to a piece of scrap 2x6 and set it down in my attic pointed towards the stations on Davis Island. I drilled a hole in the top of the wall by my tv and dropped the cable down.
At my last house, I had a monster sized antenna and a Motorola signal booster that could barely see through three 50 year old oak on the east side of my house. So your mileage may vary.
Also, older homes in St Pete have plaster walls and ceilings which use metal mesh that blocks signals. If you have that, then you'll have to get your antenna into your attic or outside the mesh.
I used this with good effect:
I have it attic (wood framed 2 story) pointed at grouping of stations about 25 miles away... compass bearing 81 degrees. Pulling them all in at "very good" to "great" signal strength. For my application – this antenna delivers. Please note the antenna itself is one small link in the overall reception chain. Other factors are distance to transmitter, terrain, elevation, direction, interference from other buildings/signals, roof material, cables, connectors, etc. Trial and error is the only way to know for sure if this will work for you. Getting it high and with clear line of site will give you more benefit than any amplifier or gadget.
LOL. You didn't say that. You said, " "legally you can only rent a studio to one person"...Which is incorrect. Further, studio spaces under 120 sq. ft. are rare. https://tinyurl.com/y57bs6ccb
You're wrong. Deal with it. :)
Try Facebook marketplace! I just got a brand new longboard deck for $20 which would normally cost well over hundred dollars. Alot of great deals there!
Honestly, I don't think there's a St Pete clone out there. You're looking for an up-and-coming small city with community that's walkable or bikable and has opportunity and affordable housing and is near the water. The closest I can think would be Asheville, or maybe Austin 15 years ago.
It sounds like your only reservation is the summer heat? It's not that much worse here than in Baltimore. In fact it looks like the same climate as Baltimore if you took May-October and stretched it out to fill the whole year. Cities like DFW and Austin have even hotter summers with lots of 100+ days. Heck, even DC has similar humidity and hotter temps than here for a month or so.
Pretty much any place outside of southern California will have a season or two that doesn't lend itself to outdoor activities.
Yeah, the peak 3-4 summer months are uncomfortable... it's like our "winter". We stay indoors.
Personally, I think you'd have a better time dealing with the summers than finding a similar enough city with a better climate.
I respectfully disagree. Satellite view if you were able to block off the street right by the water, there would be plenty of land, and easy access to boats which could be used for raiding parties and escape. There would be some food at the Pier already (They have restaurants) and of course any prepared zombie survivor will have food, saved for hurricanes or zombies, plus of course the fish.
I see the Sam's Club as having pretty much the same failings as a mall. Once it has been breached there really isn't any place to fall back. Plus you don't need a desalination plant, you just need some science & sunshine!
But hey to each his own, good luck.
I've had T-Mobile since 2003, its improved drastically in the area since then. I remember back when we wouldn't get 3G unless we were in a bigger city like Miami. Anyways, I get LTE speed mostly all over the area. But you can use this reference to help..
No idea, I just happen to be sitting at the one on 66th, and thought it would have been a strange coincidence.
St. Pete can be great, there's tons of stuff to do. The beach can get dull after awhile, though. Kinda touristy. Head downtown, wander around for awhile, you'll find something interesting.
I was in the same boat till I was tired of finding the same 'out of order' bish you've been coming across, so I bought one of these and have been very happy with it. I bought one a few years ago and got one for my sister this past summer cuz she was always borrowing mine.
But if you're not wanting to spend anything, then hopefully this site can help you. Good luck!
That's great to know. I am planning to commute from the gateway area to downtown using route 4. It does seems to have a good frequency during regular hours. Regarding the live location, which is the more reliable app that has the live bus location updates, is it the Transit App or the PSTA Bus Tracker App?
It’s informed opinion, get a copy of this.

Amazon has replacement cables. You should be able to find a guide online on how to replace. For 9 bucks it's worth a shot and would be cheaper than a repair shop.
Yea its the worst right now. My wife takes Allegra D 24/7 year round and I start taking it around this time every year for a month or so. I also use Fluticasone (nasal spray) year round. Those two combined work pretty well. Allegra D can be expensive. Fluticasone (name brand is Flonase) can be found pretty cheap if you order the generics.

If you don't want to put your dog under anesthesia, you can buy common dental tools on amazon for cheap.
Vets mostly remove plaque, which is something you can do yourself without risking your dog. Couple this with a good brushing, and you saved yourself a few hundred.
You should go to the vet if you notice anything weird.
While I dont have dental anxiety, I would suggest checking out this book there's also an app for it you can download with great mindfulness tools. It's been helping me out a LOT.
You can order them from Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07VYJXXHC/ref=sspa_dk_detail_1?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B07VYJXXHC&pd_rd_w=gj3a9&pf_rd_p=a64be657-55f3-4b6a-91aa-17a31a8febb4&pd_rd_wg=FUsLE&pf_rd_r=QKVM7NCMFDV3E3F48ZSX&pd_rd_r=cc9b7f42-42a9-4bcc-bd2f-e71846e78b9d&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUExNkdJN0tZWTQ4UlhOJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwNTk4MTY4MlpITUJHTE0xMlhDTiZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwOTE4OTEzMzUzVDlQQk5TMFEzWiZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX2RldGFpbF90aGVtYXRpYyZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU=

It measures your oxygen saturation level. If it dips below 93-92% then that means you arent getting enough oxygen to your lungs and its critical. I would just continue to monitor the symptoms for now. Depending on cases, you might need to just ride it out at home. Just make sure to self quarantine for now to not possibly give it to someone else.
Have you tried one of the anti bark houses? When I went from a house to apt I was worried about how they would be so I recorded them and they barked or cried for 15 of the 20 minutes I was gone for. Once I got the house they do one bark and that's it. I got one like this but there is a ton on Amazon and they work great. Bark house
The future is now.
I've never considered ordering heavy machinery off the internet before but there's a first for everything. After some browsing perhaps this would be a good choice.
Someday I'll try tubeless, but since my fatass tends to break spokes on the regular it might be a while. It looks like it increases the time to fix/replace the spoke and tires. A few ounce difference in weight isn't that important for me since I'm usually hauling groceries anyways.
But perhaps you can answer a question, I'm looking at them on Amazon but it seems like they are either off-road or pure narrow road tires. The tires I have now are mixed (smooth center/knobby edge), are there tubeless like this?
Yea, when you mount them, you typically, drill a small hole and run the network cable through the small hole, once through the hole, you put the RJ-45 end on it and crimp it. The cam housing should mount right over the top of the hole you drilled and will keep that wire from being exposed which keeps people from having access to cutting it. I did purchase a LPR camera once that did not support PoE and you can use a dongle which allows you to run PoE toward the camera, and then split the power out of Pin 7&8 out into that dc power adapter type of dongle. I still would not prefer a camera like that unless it offered a specific feature like License plate reading. Otherwise, most run of the mill ip cameras should PoE compatible.
I don't believe St. Pete supplies Rain Barrels. The City of Dunedin Does.
There have been giveaways in the past, sponsored by the SWFWMD and James River Association. Just have to keep an eye out for them.
Retail is between $50 and $100
