Re: I'm back!

I just realized I didn't report on property! I guess I'm so p*** about the unnecessary, unorganized, unreal evacuation I keep forgetting it. I don't think our power ever went off -- I left my fish tanks running, and all four were still going strong when we returned. No melted food in the freezer, no sour milk in the fridge. We have some branches down, and a fiddle leaf fig Gary left in the back yard was leaning hard to the south, but everything else looks fine. We may discover some roof damage if it should ever rain. There were some fences down on the edge of the subdivision, but not on our block. Very lucky.

At the marina, because we were on the EXTREME west edge of the storm, all the water sucked out of the lake and marina, so the boats sat on the bottom and suffered no damage. I was pleased to hear that a set of awnings I made about six years ago were left up and survived the 75 mile an hour winds. I can't believe the owner didn't take the canvas down, but he called tonight to say how pleased he was my work had weathered the storm.

When we left, we really expected to return to nothing. We are extremely fortunate. And considering moving far away from the Gulf coast. The weather man is talking about the development of tropical storm Stan even as I write; I understand we are at the beginning of a new 30 year cycle of extreme storms. I think I'd rather not stick around for more of this.

What an awful sounding experience. I'm glad you are ok and back at your place. You didn't mention how the house and boat faired?
