We're home!

We're home!
After 6 days as evacuees we are finally back home and only found minor damage around the building. Some soffit is ripped off on the front and side of the house where Wilma's winds hit the most. Some trees are uprooted and shrubbery is blown over. Unfortunately some of the beautiful palms still standing will die, because their heart is ripped out - but other than that, everything is ok. We were very relieved, our hurricane shutters held, and everything is ok.

The drive back on the interstate was stop and go, because everybody decided to come home at the same time. But a least we were not in a hurry and nervous, because this time we didn't have to get away from the hurricane. On the road down here we only saw some bent street signs and many branches piled up along the side of the road. But it was nothing compared to hurricane Charley last year.

Our heart goes out to everybody who had hurricane damage - we were VERY lucky! Thanks to all of you for your wishes, thoughts and prayers! I feel like giving you all one giant hug!
