After the storm update

So Hurricane Irma blew through Florida leaving a path of destruction behind her.  By Sunday evening the hurricane made another turn and began to break down and rapidly began to lose steam. We were one of the few areas that didn't lose power.  My sister and great niece joined me to ride out the hurricane, she lives on the west coast and before the turn on Sunday was expected to be hit quite hard.  Her husband stayed behind with her dog with intention of joining us here if things got bad.

Yesterday my internet service was down for 12 hours a small inconvenience to say the least.  Today I filled 3 large black trash bags with tree debris and had every intention of mowing the grass except there isn't a gas station in the area with gas so it will have to wait.

I'm happy to say all of my potted plants I had placed in front of the garage survived, only one fell over which didn't even surprise me because it falls over all the time, I really need to transplant it.  I did lose the new growth on the top of my bamboo tree but I have replanted some of the pieces with hope some will take root and grow.

I didn't put the plants in the garage because the heat alone would have killed them, I did this a few years ago and the next day the plants were toast.

Well that's my after the storm update.  I hope all of you that were hit by Irma are safe.
