We’ll, we survived another hurricane here on the east coast of Central Florida. It was Hell! I wanted to leave on the 7th but spouse refused to go. I almost flew out of here but just couldn’t abandon a senior citizen to fend for himself. Next time, he goes, or else!
All day yesterday we dealt with the hurricane and tornados swirling around us, and through the grace of God, came through with no damage to our home. Our trees, pool, and pool screens are another matter. It’s going to take at least 4 days to clean up the mess. Our back yard is covered in huge Oak tree limbs (all day yesterday and last night: thunk…thunk…thunk) and smaller limbs. Our side yard is impassable due to a downed Magnolia tree. You can’t step anywhere in our yard without tripping on a branch, limb, or Magnolia cone. We lost some pool screens so my sparkling pool is now filled with leaves and pieces of screen.
We lost power. No problem! We had battery operated fans, lights, flashlights, and fully charge electronics with backup ways to recharges.
We lost water. No problem! We had bottled water, filled 7-gal water containers, a filled Water BOB in the tub, a 20,000 gal. pool, and multiple water filters.
We lost gas. No problem! We have at least 5 different ways to cook. First thing, got out the Coleman to heat water for coffee.
We lost cell and home phone. Well, you can’t have everything. Time fixed that problem.
Don’t be too hard on folks that didn’t evacuated, unless they were in a mandatory evacuation zone. There are multiple reasons why people don’t evacuate from Fl. but the list is too long to go into. You’d really have to live here to understand.
