Thoughts, Hearts, Prayers

Post by r.ranville » Sat Sep 09, 2017 5:45 pm

In May and June we spent 5 weeks moving our daughter and son in law into their first house in south St. Petersburg. Late Sunday and early Monday it will be in the way of the strength of the hurricane. Many of us have friends and family and racing family in the way in Florida. Our thoughts, hearts and prayers go out to all.

For sure - thoughts are with them.

In-laws are also in St.Petersburg, with 3 residences amongst the family. Interestingly 2 are in the first zone to evacuate, with 1 in the next to last zone to evacuate.

One specific family member was refusing to go, despite the "order." Seems like opinion was changed late yesterday and they ventured further north. The others will be hunkering down. They are near the highway so it is "built up" a little bit, well as much as it can be down there anyway.

Since I brought it up: My son in law called me late Monday night from their house; it was untouched, not even the garbage cans moved. The house behind them was crushed by a large fallen tree. There was, apparently, no flooding in south St. Pete.

Glad to hear it!
