Leana just posted this update on the Miles For Family Facebook page:
“Hi, guys! Few readers asked me to update them on the aftermath of Irma, so here it goes. My family is fine (most important thing) and the house only sustained minor damage. We have several huge trees in the yard, but will worry about them later. We currently have no electricity and internet is sporadic. I can’t even access the blog right now, but scheduled a few posts ahead, in anticipation of the hurricane. Nancy will be taking care of everything till things are normal back here.
This was one awful storm and our county is a mess right now. The eye of Irma actually went over our neck of the woods. But this isn’t our first rodeo, and hurricane Charlie in 2004 was much worse. I will have a post with my reflections on the whole experience, but wanted to mention something. Material possessions don’t matter. It’s a cliche statement, but it’s true. Before the storm hit, all I could think about was keeping my kids safe. I wasn’t worried about the house at all. In the time of crisis, your priorities seem to become crystal clear. My thoughts and prayers go out to those who fared worse than we did.”
