Hey, just got home and wanted to do a quick thank you. Waited out the hurricane at a motel that lost power but had really thick walls. We were quite lucky that Irma stayed on land; would have been worse if it tore along the Gulf.
What a beautiful sight to see all the Live Oaks standing (instead of crashing through my roof). They did shed a lot of branches but they’re ok. Best of all, the electricity was on! Priority was making coffee and turning on the air con 🙂
One small tree uprooted and took out the well pipe. No water at all, but I had filled the washer before leaving and there are about 10 gallons of drinking water from the R.O.U. (Reverse Osmosis Unit). Fortunately, my roomie is a hoarder, so he’s busily gluing and fixing a new pipe that will hopefully work.
Anyway, just want to thank you for your good thoughts, vibrations and prayers. Certainly seemed to work for me. I know there are people not so lucky and even a few miles away, in Elfers, the Anclote River will crest today, going up 25 feet. Mandatory evacuation there, but many of us don’t really have anywhere to go. So good wishes to the Elfers residents.
You’ve all been busily writing and I promise to try and read everything, although I may not comment.
Sastimos! (good health, and of course, love and peace to us all)
