Our Damage was Minimal
September 12, 2017 9:11am CST
We are among the lucky ones in the state of Florida. While we did lose a few branches off of our huge tree in the front yard, the only damage is some ceiling damage in our living room. The place in the roof where the main roof meets the porch roof appears to be the issue. I think that the volume of rain just caused the issue. Hopefully, it will dry and be fine and we will check it when we get there in January. We lost electricity but not for long enough to cause the food in our freezer to thaw so that is also good news. I hope all of our fellow mylotters fared as well.

That is great news. It sounds very minor, thankfully. Did you go and check on your place or did you have someone else do that for you? We've had much smaller storms over the years in our area and gone 12 hours (during the summertime) without power. At that stage you have to throw out any food in your fridge, our freezer was fine, but not our fridge.

My brother in law checked it for us, it would take us days to drive down there with flights not running in many areas. We are lucky to have family nearby the house who can check for us. We were very relieved to have just minimal damage. Thanks.
