I know I was supposed to do the vacation adventures part two like two weeks ago, but before I was supposed to make it, I got hit by hurricane Irma. Thankfully, I got no damage other then a tree falling on a porch swing that was rusty and almost broken anyway.
Aside from all the wind and rain that started like 5 hours before hand, the actual storm hit around 11:00 at night. The wall sounded like a giant leaf blower was turned on and off. I had to sit in a cramped closet with three large dogs, one of whom wanted to go outside. Transistors exploded with loud nasty bangs, and around 12 at night, I lost power.
I had no power for almost 48 hours, and in that time, the house heated like a boiling teakettle. Really, the best way I found to escape the heat was to lay on the floor and spread myself out. I could not open the fridge or freezer, because those had to stay cold as long as possible, so things did not go bad. Thankfully, I had flowing water, but I did not drink it, instead using bottled water. Meals included sandwiches, chicken grilled on the propane grill, and dinner at a friend’s house when I went there to charge my electronics, for they had power.
Aside from the tree I mentioned above, I also had loads of tiny branches and enough leaves to build another tree come down, and most of my garden was destroyed.
Thankfully, that was all the damage I got, and I know some people were not as lucky, so I’m not complaining about what I got.
