Be careful.. water brings out critters.

I'd be concerned about an ambulance or fire truck not being able to respond.

Meh. We're pretty much flooded in on my island as well. The last 48 hours have been an adventure, to say the least. While it was light outside, I sat in my living room and watched the storm unfold in the Gulf. Fortunately, we never lost power (yay!) but a number of streets are underwater. By Saturday it should all recede. Until then, I'll just walk where I need to go and be extremely happy that I'm merely inconvenienced. It's part of life in Florida.

Yes, Be very careful. Look at this.

HUGE FLORIDA GATOR!
 
Yep, this monster is real. Caught on camera during Hurricane Eta in Naples.

While Eta’s strong winds and rain pushed most people indoors, it drew out an alligator that took a stroll along a Naples golf course. A now-viral set of photos and video shows the massive gator walking toward the water, his thick tail dragging behind.

The retention ponds are full luckily are streets are not!  The wildlife officer was in our area today warning gators are out in full force.  I asked him if they'd be trapping them -- not unless they're a "nuisance"...yikes scared the h##l out of me!!

I live on golf course w/woods behind and see them all the time.  I would think the neighbors would be scared having a gator that size "cruising" their neighborhood 😳.

@MorningLover that gator gives me nightmares.  It’s huge.

It's funny to see an alligator standing like that.  I always imagine them with short legs and their bellies against the ground.
