It has been several days since I posted anything mainly because we've been anxiously following Hurricane Irma.
As we know, Irma was a Cat 5 hurricane, pretty much the most powerful storm to hit Florida in a very long time. The entire state was affected but particularly the west coast where our condo is located- Naples to be exact.
Preliminary reports were that the area was a mess. Later reports were toned down somewhat. There were many trees down of course and there probably isn't a carport left standing but other than that there did not appear to be any significant flooding. According to pictures sent to me, roof tiles were intact and power and water are back on.
All in all, cleanup crews and utility workers have done a fantastic job.
We're headed there Monday to check out our place and arrange for a home watch person. So all in all it could have been much, much worse. The storm surge we kept hearing about never happened or, at least if it did, not nearly as bad as they kept predicting.
So it's on to the next one. Thank God Jose is going out to sea.
