As I told last week, we had to evacuate for Hurricane Matthew. We were extremely fortunate in that he passed about fifty miles offshore from us and that his storm surge happened at low tide. We could have had a disastrous hit and all our belongings would be gone. I can't get over how lucky we were. We came home to debris all over the yard and a tree on the house (a skinny tree with the top resting on our roof so no damage we can see) but nothing worse.
I promised to tell more about our visit to Atlanta that took place just before the hurricane.
One of my guy's pix was chosen to hang in the State Capital's rotunda (along with about thirty other paintings and photographs). He was invited to bring it in person and meet the Governor but at first demurred. Then a relative offered to drive him into Atlanta, and I persuaded him to go.
Here's a shot of the people milling around in the anteroom before the presentation:
And here is my guy's photograph. Jekyll Island Sunset:
So he got to shake hands with the Governor and First Lady, and the photograph will hang in the Capital until April for anyone visiting Atlanta to enjoy. I am quite proud of him!
