Hurricane Matthew is suppose to hit Florida in a few hours. The shutters are up, the courtyard furniture has been stored and the pool furniture was tossed in the pool.
You may have seen the post last week about adding a Mediterranean look to the courtyard. Well, it is not so pretty right now.
This isn't our first rodeo!
In 2004 we were living in our dream beach house when we had a direct hit from Hurricane Ivan. All infrastructure was washed away, including the roads. We had built this home four years earlier with all the upgraded hurricane codes and it still had substantial damage. It took nine months of renovation, then approximately six weeks after we returned home Hurricane Dennis hit us again.
After the 2nd renovation we decided enough is enough and sold our home.
I bet some of you are wondering why in the world would we eventually move back to Florida. Believe me when I say weeks like this one I wonder myself! At least this time we are away from the coast living in Central Florida.
Please send positive thoughts our way.
