Like many Americans, we watched (from New Hampshire) with morbid fascination as Hurricane Irma barreled into our home of Naples, Florida. While the damage could have been catastrophic for us – and others – we had relatively “minor” damage.
Like Losing a Friend
A good neighbor sent us pictures of: a tree down on top of our pool cage, a tree down across our driveway, and worst of all, our productive and popular avocado tree blown over. For the many of you who have made “the shot of the day” or just received one of the football-sized green globes to make guacamole with, you can imagine how we feel.
With 90% of Collier County without power (or gasoline), we are still hoping to stay on schedule for The Wachtel Family Traveling Circus to arrive in Naples on September 24th.
How about you? If you are a Floridian, did you ride it out or ride out of town? Damage?
We hope all those who suffered across the state (and don’t forget the poor people swamped by Harvey in Texas and Louisiana) can get back to a normal life as soon as possible.
