Hello from SW Florida (Alva). We survived hurricane Wilma with minimal damage, but let me tell you, this storm was horrible. The onslaught of the storm wasn't too bad, but when the cold front met the tailend of the storm, we were slammed. I can't remember being in such strong wind gusts. Some of our area's will not have electricity until November 15th, and viewing Clewiston, FL was heartbreaking. It is a town where most of the sugarcane is grown, and it looked as though tornados passed thru this small, poor town. Roofs were found in the median of a main highway, and a lot of the electric poles are laying by the side of the road. Plus, no food was transported to this town as of Wednesday, and we packed the car with groceries and delivered it to them. What better way to clear the pantry of foods we could buy in Mexico, and help others at the same time.
Or governor really goofed up with advanced preparation for Wilma.
All we kept thinking about was Mexico, and saying thank God we won't have to go through another hurricane season, or at least we hope we won't. Our home is on the market, and hopefully, we'll be down in the Ajijic area before too long.
