Hurricane Charley Status

For those of you wondering, here an update on the state of things on this neck of the woods…

The past couple of days have been spent:
-Recovering from the effects of Hurricane Chavez, who swept hope for a better Venezuela away from a bunch of Venezuelans (myself included) for a few hours. We’re now facing the uncertainty of the audits of the results that will be taking place.
-Trying to save the life of the last tree we had problems with: a 10-12 feet oak that got uprooted by Charley. I have SO MUCH respect for the force of the winds… I mean, it took my wife and I ALL our strength to move the tree like 3 inches… that is, of course, after Manny accidentally slammed a peak on one of the pipes of the irrigation system, causing a small water mess, etc, etc, etc… all was accomplished (almost) at about 9 pm.

So, all said and done, having no high-speed internet or phone (both have been on and off intermittently) seems like a microscopic thing to deal with, in the face of all things going on around us: some people at work, for instance, having lost everything, left homeless… I am thankful for how fortunate we were.

Next, a few pics from our home and the tree, and a few other from around town, so you can get a visual…


Our tree that fell to the pressure of the winds…


The proverbial “shaking traffic sign” was also seen… this sign sits right by our house.


My next door neighboor REALLY suffered from the typical damage of the storm (there was a LOT of this around town): some big tree fell from the other side of the fence and did this.


I can only shake when I think again how strong the winds were… some of these trees are easily 50, 60 and 70 feet tall: old and heavy oaks, uprooted as if nothing.


The nearby CITGO, leaning like the tower of Pisa, much like the Democracy in Venezuela these days (not a coincidence, it feels, that Venezuela owns CITGO through PDVSA)


Another common sight around town: torn screens in the structures protecting pools. These structures are very common in Florida because of the gators…
