On the night of Friday, September 8th, I was in NYC, safe at a friend’s house. But that night I couldn’t sleep. Mr PoP and Kitty PoP were still at home in Florida, and though I knew they would be trying to leave the next morning – presuming that the remaining flights weren’t cancelled like so many others had been, I still couldn’t sleep. Earlier in the day, the police went ...

Our pool cage – basically all the screen waist high and up was gone. Things are starting to get back to normal in the PoP household after Irma blew (and boy did she blow!*) through our little town. * According to neighbors who know someone in the neighborhood who had a nice weather station – before Irma blew the weather station off the house (hence the ‘had’ in the previous clause), the weather ...

Our house was without power for 11 days, but got it back Wednesday night.  The relief was huge.  Even Kitty PoP seems more energetic and less lethargic with a little bit of A/C.  =) More to come probably next week on where we stand after Irma rolled through our little town, but it has been a heck of a ride and it’ll take us at least a few weekends of work ...

Part 1 – The Evacuation The whole thing began late Labor Day weekend. I had been having a wonderfully productive labor day weekend, working on my latest woodworking project around the house and knocking out some long-overdue weeding. It was one of those killer weekends where I felt like I was in amazing GSD mode and was knocking items off the “to do” list.  But… being so busy I hadn’t spent ...
