Tom Brady's first tropical storm in Tampa didn't go so well

By WEEI 93.7

Tropical storm Eta hit the Tampa Bay area Wednesday night and it was Tom Brady's first seeing he just moved to the state this spring.

Speaking to reporters Thursday, Brady revealed how it went -- and according to him it was "a trip."

"The hurricane -- that was a trip for me last night, the storm," he said, via ESPN's Jenna Laine. "I had a dock, it broke, it floated away. I had these jet skis on it. I saw those things sitting out in the middle of the bay. And I was going, 'Wow, that's so pretty surreal.' I was just kind of laughing, 'Oh, you'll get the jet skis back.' A lot of people are dealing with a lot worse than that.

"But just waking up and seeing what happened to the yard, it got pretty messed up. I'd be really nervous if a big one hit. So, it happened pretty quick. I thought you had time to prepare for these things, but apparently you don't. They're kind on you and you've got to deal with it."

Brady did get his jet skis back.

"They got fixed. We dragged 'em back," he said. "They were about 300 yards away at someone else's house and I got a bunch of messages from people that were like, 'Hey man, are [those] your jet skis?' They floated down and found their way to someone else's dock. They got dodged, so I was very lucky."

Brady added: "A good lesson learned from someone that's been in the Northeast for a long time."

The 43-year-old is living in Derek Jeter's mansion on Davis Islands.
