Hi Mrs. R.
I am right there with you! Thinking about last years season still makes me "cringe". We live close to Tampa. Last season we have been blessed by divine protection, but it was devastating all around us. When we took the boards of our sliding doors, one of those giant trampolines was laying right in front of it. (All bent out of shape of course.) It had made it from 4 properties down the road over 3 high wood fences. I was so glad we had the boards up!
It was the Hurricane that "hovered" on your side of Florida over the whole weekend, but it was so big in diameter, that we already had wind gusts on this side of Florida by Saturday! It blew away our girls outdoor climber (little tykes structure) on Saturday evening. We ran after it like maniacs! :-D After we caught up with it, we managed to push it in our garage. By that time we have been soaked to the bones! My little girl thought it was hilarious (watching from inside)...to her it was just like in America's Funniest Home Videos! (She is 4 years old) The storm lasted until Monday at noon. NO FUN!!!!!
We will keep our prayers up!
