New Neighbors2 days before Irma came, we watched our new nieghbors board up their home, put out sandbags. Hmmmm we thought, what is up with that?
This is there fence between us After Irma.They have 2 dogs, and we were out at daybreak, I walked next door to advise they have no fence.
She comes out to talk and I find out they moved here from New Orleans, thus the preparations. Her name is Sarah, his is Dennis and they have 2 small girls. We became instant friends, and now if we need help in the future, he said any time we can call on him. He offered to help Bob when he replaces the 2 sections we lost in our fence and donates a piece of fencing he did not need.
1. New Friends made, after Irma... and we found future help from both neighbors if we ever need it,
2.I had no weight gain after 2 weeks of stress, the sinus crud we both had for 10 days, was over before Irma. Plus Bob's ER trip with his arm was 4 days before Irma, not during it.
3. We did not lose power. or AC. (slight upset over 8 days without internet/tv/phone)
4. woke me up at midnight on day 3 of cleanup and put the thought of our 85 and 81 year old neighbors across the street on my mind. I said when we woke up, I need to go check on them, they have been in the house without power for several days.
I knocked on the door and he came to the door and said Please can you call 911, my wife fell, she is incoherent.. I called and waited for EMS to transport. the story is to long But I list this as a good thing. They needed help, I gave it.
|no damage to house|
This tree did no damage to our home... and we met my neighbors son and grandson that had come to stay with Barbara. The also offered help when/if we need it.
