Hurricane Hermine, or the remains of it, came through a week or so ago. We were lucky. First, it came ashore as only a category 1 storm. Then, by the time it got to us, it was mostly high winds and rain. Not too bad. Our power went out but only for about four hours, though some houses were out longer. And we only had small debris in our yard while others had trees down. Some pix:

Fence and telephone wires down


The awning on a convenience store was blown down. This is right next to our favorite Southern Soul barbecue which wasn't harmed, thank goodness! We can still eat!

So now that Hermine is gone, a lot of people are deciding to take care of trees that might fall and do some damage.

Threatening pine being taken down:

The only tree we had that might have hurt the house, partly fell a couple of years ago and we had it taken out then. So we feel pretty safe. I'm just hoping any other hurricanes are as mild!


  1. Quite a storm to go through, regardless. You were lucky.

  2. I am happy to hear all is well and the Barbecue was not damaged. Priorities !
    The first photo is wonderful.
    Our storm was really nice just rained nicely for a day and half. So we lucked out !

    cheers, parsnip and thehamish

    1. Those storms where there isn't much damage are th best ones!

  3. Glad to hear you're safe. I've always wanted to live near the ocean, but this is one of the disadvantages....

    1. Yes and with the climate change people forecasting higher seas, it does get a little scary!
