Hi everyone! I’m back!

Hope you are all well! We’ve just got our power back after three days without. It’s amazing how crazy you start to go without air con!

I just wanted to post my own little update along with a big thank you as we’ve had so many well wishes following hurricane Irma! I feel so blessed to have received so many kind thoughts. Also thank you to Jess who updated you all while we were without power!

It’s been a stressful few days to say the least. Saturday night, the girl who I told you all I’d made friends with through my blog who lives near by actually came and stopped with us for a night which was amazing to meet her and her fiancΓ©. Sunday we started to feel Irma approach us then we were hit by Irma fully from around 10pm on Sunday.

As my first ever hurricane I must admit I was scared! We had the weather channel on to follow where the hurricane was going and when it would reach us. As it started approach us and the weather was getting worse and the T.V would go off with a message appearing, stating “TORNADO WARNING, TAKE COVER NOW” along with alerts on my phone, it was so scary. I found myself peering out the windows looking for funnel clouds!

The following morning we woke up to windy yet sunny weather. Looking around the house for any damage and luckily there was none to the actual house. Outside we lost a few trees and many large branches came down which we are still cleaning up.

Otherwise we are both fine, just getting things back to normal. All the food in our fridge/freezer has gone bad due to the power being out for three days so we need to replace that today too. Due to the hurricane we also couldn’t properly celebrate Toney’s birthday which was Saturday so we will be celebrating this weekend which I’ll update you all on with our activities!

Once again thank you to everyone who commented on Jess’s updated to wish us well it means so much. Thoughts and prayers with those in a worse situation than is following hurricane Irma.

  1. I’m sorry, I had to laugh at the thought of you looking for funnel clouds! Sounds like a good mix of thrill and dread. I have never experienced a hurricane myself as I live well away from the coastal areas in GA but we did get quite an influx of people from Florida. Glad to know you are safe, welcome to the blogging community!

  2. Good to hear all well with you and your home. Many trees seem to have been up rooted. We have only had one hurricane in the UK. I think 89 but the devastation to so many trees is still evident.
