The tortoise, the cranes, and now this little fella came by to visit us the week of preparing for Hurricane Irma. This guy was out by the pool the morning after the storm hit. We lost power for a week, everything in the fridge and freezer, had some fence and tree damage but it could have been a lot worse. The kids went bat-shit crazy out of school with nothing to do. Thankfully the local bowling alley had power so we spent half a day there, and there was always the pool. Also, with four I-phones in the house we (the adults) enjoyed the AC in our cars while we sat and recharged our phones so the kids could play games on them. Three days was spent in NC as we'd already planned a trip there to surprise my dad on his 80th birthday. It was uncomfortable, stressful, but we had our good days, too.
