Thanks so much for your caring thoughts and good wishes for my mom and our safety.
lrma came through Monday with 50 mph wind gusts and rain that fell sideways, but we are just fine. We are at 12 ft. above sea level so we didn't get any water other than puddles. However, Front Street, the main street of our town, is right on the harbor, and it didn't fare as well.
The photos were taken on Monday as the worst of the storm was just winding up. They are from the Internet -- I was safely at home, not out walking in flood waters like some people! The stores had been sandbagged when we went through town on Saturday so I'm hoping their inventory was spared. We checked on the old sailboat and it came through without a scratch.
The sun is has been out and a beautiful breeze is drying things up nicely here in Georgetown.
My mom's home in Florida was not damaged by the hurricane but the electricity is still out at the care home and everyone is quite uncomfortable as the air-conditioners can't run. At another facility in Florida five elderly people have died from the heat so we are hoping they get power back very soon.
On the Facebook page for my mom's town someone posted this yesterday:
"Have someone's white carport in my yard.
Will trade for my missing piece of tan siding."
Sometimes the best thing you can do is laugh!
