Hurricane Irma Update


I wanted to get a quick post off to all of you. At the moment, I am sitting in my shuttered house in Fort Lauderdale. The first squall of Hurricane Irma has just arrived.

As you can see, Joe and I have secured the house as best we could. The yard and garden are packed up and stored away. We have our supplies and we’re ready for a long night.

I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you for your well wishes and concern. I will post again about Irma and all of my random thoughts — but for now . . . I wanted to get a short post out to you before I lose power, Internet, and wifi.

If you’re in the storm’s path, be safe!

    • That all clear can’t get here soon enough, Cindy. We did not evacuate. Although we’re on a canal, it’s far enough inland that storm surge isn’t an issue. The biggest issue is wind — and I worry about friends and family on the West Coast. Thank you.

  1. Coming from a bushfire area here in Victoria, I can appreciate your stress and concerns. Thoughts and prayers go to you both and to all others at this tense time – take care xx

  2. Have been hearing all day from family on the west coast that they and their homes came through the storm okay. Hope that is true for you too — and that you get power back soon. (I remember being without power here for ten days after a big ice storm in 1998, and the sense of adventure wore off about day 3!)
