Got the word I got a place at NALCrest on March 15. I first sent an application in 2006, but I think I put 2013 as my retirement date.

Found an article about a Nalcrest resident today:

Sounds uncomfortable at Nalcrest right now. My husband knows I will lease there for a year if only to be there for 4-6 months. He is zero interested and he gave me some advice that now I know to avoid going to Nalcrest in Sept. It seems freak for hurricane damage to occur in central Florida, but maybe I have forgotten if it has happened in the last decade.

I just checked.

Polk County FL ( were Nalcrest is located ) has a 52% electric outage. It could take up to 10 days to get the power back on.

I put in my application June, and I know I have a long wait. NALCrest is just about perfect for me. It is half way between my daughters in Tampa and Melbourne. I don't want anything to do with big cities, it is pretty secluded, and just about everybody is over 60. I was going to move to Venice, but I just don't need tourists, and I really don't want to buy another house. I will retire from the state as soon as I get accepted at NALCrest. I retired from the PO in 2005, but kept my NALC membership just in case.

/m103 I have made that trip 3 times in the last 25 years. Lots of fish the first time. Now the limits on some fish are way less. For instance, we loaded up on some small sharks, catching the limit of 5 each. The second time the limit was 1 each and the boat probably caught 1/3 the limit. The last time a few years ago we were catching junk fish that the company kept to use for bait. It was like catching tuna and not taking them home. Yes it is fun to fish, but for what we paid we wanted some meat. If you want, you can go to Dolphin Docks web site and look at the catches. If you see a huge amount of fish that look like tuna, they are probably those junk fish. I forget what they are called. It is not amberjack. Those are good to eat. We caught lots of those on the first trip I took 25 years ago.

A little bit of science. All the rain, well most all the rain, in the US flows into rivers that eventually find its way to the Gulf of Mexico. This rain water brings with it all the silt and crap it picks up along the way. Just physics.

I'm not totaly sure, but I think they are ok. High winds and they lost electricity. I'm a Snowbird but was there right before the storm. I got out when the getting was good. I wrote to a few people but have not heard back yet.

Someone wrote this on another site " Lots of tree debris, loss of shingles. Lagoons are full but don't see any flooding yet. Softball field had ditches full yesterday"

/m100 Took a few of the kids on a 40-hour fishing trip out of Port Aransas a while back. In the morning before we left we went to the aquarium in Corpus. My brother picked a small hammerhead shark up by its dorsal fin at the aquarium. He said he was practicing for the big one he was going to catch. At the end of our (lousy) fishing trip we were drift fishing near that same area just before we got back to the dock. My brother caught a 7-ft hammerhead among all the little boats and jet skiers. In fact, his catch surfaced right beside a little boat and someone in the boat pushed it away with an oar. The captain said my brother was lucky the people did not cut the line, as some jerks do that at times. I wouldn't want to be in that water.

/m91 Calico. Got here through the link on the retired forum, otherwise I'm never here. The difference between the water in Texas and the water in California is comparable to the difference between the water in California and the water in Hawaii. The Texas water is murky with small waves. It can get close to 90 degrees in the summer, but California cold in the winter. I definitely would not swim in it having any cuts, scrapes, or sores on the skin because of what you can catch from that water. I got up close and almost personal with a shark while bodysurfing at Port Aransas in May 1981. Yes, I did hear the "Jaws" music in my mind when I saw the dorsal fin slip underwater as it was heading towards me. Haven't been back since.

Seniority in the USPS or NALC doesn't count.

Seniority living at Nalcrest counts if you want to move to another apartment.

There are apartments up for bid now. They are offered to current residents before offered to new residents. One is a two bedroom apartment.

However it does cost extra to move to different apartments. Between $600. and $1200.

Lagoon view and two bedroom apartments don't come up very often

Since the weather folks aren't totally sure of Irma's path, is Nalcrest zero concerned about Irma (since they're so far inland)?

What exactly do you want to know?

Ask them to mail you a lease. All they can do is say no
