HURRICANE IN FLORIDA



We have just returned from a week down in the Outer Banks in North Carolina, and have been following the news on Hurricane Irma for several days.  To everyone we know, and to those we don't know in Florida, you will be very much in our thoughts.  We're praying that you all stay safe.

  2. Irma has been really bad news following up on the Texas problems and now also the earthquake in Mexico. Our friend in the BVI says it is total devastation, while our friends on Nevis thankfully seem to be OK. Have a good week Diane

    1. I hope they get their electricity back soon Christine, but I have heard on the news it might take days to get it back. I will be thinking of them too.

  7. It is so awful! I am glued to the T.V. The news channels have sent their reporters down there, and they are being blown away. Not good.

    1. Me too, I see it's over Naples on the west coast of Florida right now. Hope those news reporters know when it's a good time to take cover.

  8. We all wish the best to everyone affected by the hurricanes. Every credible study that I have seen predicts that within thirty years at most much of this area will be under water or at the very least susceptible to serious and frequent flooding. One can only hope (although I suspect it is a vain hope) that people will not just go ahead and rebuild in this area, for they will surely be faced with this situation again.

    1. Thank you David, I have read and heard similar stories about the rising water levels. I hear the same thing about Venice.

  11. It is a terrible natural disaster. I hope everyone stays safe and I feel sorry for them when they have to repair the damage. My nephew lives in the Caribbean on St Lucia, but luckily his island missed the worst of it.

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.

Also, there are times when I delete by mistake, so if something you have written to me is gone, it's usually because my fingers have pushed the wrong button!
