I know when we got tv back, I couldn’t believe the toll that the folks down in Lee & Charlotte counties took. It really is hard to watch.

We have people trying to find places to live as their homes are destroyed. They are still finding bodies. There's an empty field near me that is filled with flooded cars. Power is still not fully restored. Sewer mains are exploding. They are busting looters and scavengers. Convoys of dump trucks, power trucks, police caravans are everywhere. I ended up in the emergency room last night. Thought it was my last. Today we are resting. I hired Servpro and their crews and staff have been terrific. One adjuster from St. Louis will be here tomorrow. He's bringing me a bottle of his best St Louis BBQ sauce. There is light at the end of the tunnel

Looters aka Scavengers should be lined up and shot!

Woo Hoo, I just figured out how to use our DVD player, so at least we watched a couple of movies last night. I think 70% of our county has no elec. The sewer plant lost power & sewage started backing up & coming out of the sewer grates. We are supposed to boil water, cause the water plant lost power too.

Banana trees are pretty much gone, but I didn’t even have one broken bulb on the gazebo.

Al,
That Gazebo was "SMF Blessed".
