So glad that you weathered the storm without incident. How did Stacy and the girls do? How about your son in Orlando?
How did your office building fare?
Our friends in The Villages fared very well. Not even palm fronds down. I asked them to drive around a bit and see if that was true for the other neighborhoods. Just couldn't believe the whole area got by unscathed as the hurricane, even weakened, passed over. Well, he was surprised by what they saw. A big sinkhole in one yard and a whole tree down in another. He sent me photos, and the best one was of a golf cart stranded in about 3 feet of standing water. A lot of the people there get around by golf carts, and not just for golf. They do their shopping, go to restaurants, appts, etc. But, there are a lot of roundabouts in The Villages, and where there is a roundabout, the golf carts have to detour to a tunnel to cross under the road and come back up on the other side. Well, the tunnels flooded with the rain from Irma but the roads were quickly dry, so the first one to approach the tunnel...Yikes! I wonder how many people did that, as there are several of those tunnels throughout The Villages.
Yes, it will be interesting to see what Royal substitutes for those islands.
