I’ll begin this post by saying that we were extremely fortunate in our encounter with Ian. It’s easy to realize that when we see photos of areas that were hardest hit.
The worst part of our ordeal was a few hours of strong winds Friday evening. It was scary wondering if and when we’d lose our electricity or a tree would fall (possibly on our house).
We only lost a few small limbs.
And we had a few high tides which left lots of debris.
The tide was almost up to my little bicycle.
But Ian apparently isn’t done with us yet. He’s circling back around, bringing us more winds and even higher tidal flooding over the next couple of days.
And hurricane season goes til the end of November….

We were super fortunate as well. Even tho we were gone we had neighbors securing things but all turned out great. Whew.
Glad you fared well. Stay safe.
I know we’ve only just begun with the season – imagine how the people in Florida feel knowing Ian was not the last storm they’ll probably see this season. Scary. Lives lost, homes gone – sad to think about. Glad things haven’t been worse for you being on the water like you are…………
Be gone !
Praise the Lord Lan did not do as much to our area as it could be. We were truly blessed again.
So glad to learn you came t hrough all right.
Changing the subject – I saw the Ghost Hunter’s episode about Bacon’s Castle Saturday night. That was awesome in its own way too.
Glad to hear you are safe!
Glad you are okay –
Yes, we were extremely blessed. We did lose power, lost a small piece of vinyl trim, and one small Crepe Myrtle that blew over. Very thankful for the rain.
Good to hear effects from ol’ Ian weren’t bad for you. Keeping Floridians in my prayers as they suffered so much devastation.
