Hello from "Hurricane Alley"!
I'm back, and we're OK! My town/neighborhood looks like a war zone, but we'll get through. Today is the first day we have mail,trash pick-up,POWER! ( well, on my side of the street we do lol!) Jeanne was a rough ride, let me tell you! Sounded like a freight train driving over your house for 8 hours!!!! I am truly surprised that my house is still standing, let alone semi-intact! ( lost a few roof tiles, but nothing major!) Props to my brother-in-law, since he built this house for us, he obviously knows what he's doing!
I tried to get some pictures of the storm from my back porch door to show you all, but since the worst of her came over in the middle of the night, combined with the fact that I did NOT want to stick my head or my camera out far enough to have the flash be of any good, none of them really came out! ( I assume you all saw something about it on the news- Believe it!) I will tell you that the song that kept running through my head was " I am a rock" by Simon and Garfunkel. We had flooding in the back yard that came up to 4 ft. from my back door, and the street in front was submerged in about 3 ft of water as well! It has since drained off- but it was wild to see fish swimming down my street for a few hours! (I'm NOT lying, ask my kids!!!)
Hopefully, this will be the LAST TIME I will have to share this subject with you all, I think Florida has had enough! And I'm sure you all are fed up with my posts on this subject, but since it HAS been MY world the last 5 weeks or so,well.....
Back to more pleasant posts ( Please!!!! ) and catching up on all I've missed. It doesn't seem to be much, but when you don't have a link to the "outside" world for a few days- It seems like years! Thanks for you support, and I will try to get back to that for which this blog was named!! See you around the 'net! Peace KC
