Glad Irma didn't get you too bad. Many people don't realize just how far inland a powerful hurricane can wreak havoc. I lived 3 1/2 hours NW from New Orleans when Katrina hit there. We were without power for 5 days due to wind taking down power lines.

Ugh, flooding in an area that already has snakes! And did you know that ants will float in big piles?

Yeah nothing like coming across the float of fire ants when waters rise . We're still without water or power here, but my aunt has both so we went out there for a shower last night... better than her just having water she also has a water softener that I can't convince my DH to get me so it was an Awesome shower that let me get really really squeaky clean. But no ac last night with the rising humidity was a little crappy but honestly not too bad since the hurricane did bring cooler weather. But still just sitting around waiting for power

Woohoo! Although my aunt can't help sew because of her arm but she's letting us bring the machines over to sew at her place so progress can resume on the quilts while I continue to wait for power at my house ( and of course the ac and swimming pool there along with flushing toilets is another nice bonus )
