I’m posting these pictures the day that Hurricane Irma is sweeping up Florida’s gulf coast threatening to do so much damage. I sure hope everyone is OK. Mom and Dad have been in touch with many of their friends at Rice Creek Trailer Park in Riverview near Tampa where they’ve wintered for 18 years. Everyone is wondering whether they will still have a home. Especially tough for the year round residents that are still there. We’re concerned for a few people who have decided to shelter in place.
Riverview doesn’t appear to be threatened by the storm surge according to the NOAA NHC maps, but clearly, the Tampa area will not be the same after today’s storm.
Everyone is back to school this week. We’ve had a week of mostly cool weather and Labor Day was surprisingly quiet on the beach. It’s a little sad to see things winding down, but there are nice things about every time of year.
