Two years ago today I was sitting by candlelight, listening to the hum of the generator, reeling after the passing of category four hurricane Irma. My prayers had been answered, the storm slipped past a direct hit to our beloved Reef. It was mostly a wind event, old growth trees had toppled, blocking the roads, and there was flooding and salt intrusion in the lower lying areas.
Much to the chagrin of my social media friends, Ted and I had stayed to weather out the storm and I was onsite for photos of the immediate aftermath. For the most part, these photos were the first link to the outside world as to what damage had occurred here.
September 10... the second anniversary... we are in the peak of hurricane season and it will be over when it’s over. Thankfully we’ve had clear skies, escaping hurricane Dorian which devastated the Bahamas. My heart goes out to those who have suffered. They will never be the same.
Here's a look back.
