Just getting back up to being able to get online.  Hurricane Florence devastated my area. 


The torrential rain really did us in.


I have a FEMA representative coming by today to check me out.


Being from Connecticut, having just moved to the Wilmington, NC area a while ago, this storm was an eyer opener.  I'm used to the blizzards and northeasters, not so much with the wind.


I am 1/2 mile from the ocean, so felt the full brunt of the wind and rain.  Seemed to go on forever.


Anyway, just wanted to talk, I guess.

What a Great Day!

Sorry you had to go through Hurricane Florence kickstand, they are terrifying!


I lived 1 block from the ocean in Indialantic, FL for 9 years.  In 2004 we were almost a direct hit with 2 hurricanes.  We didn't have flooding, but wind damage.  Also, living in Florida,in September, with no electricity for 6 days was also rough!   I'm now back in Pittsburgh, PA, but I do miss living beachside.  


Thank God you are safe.  I hope the recovery goes well for you and your area.

Sorry to hear you were in the path of Florence.  As a native of NC, I can tell you that Florence wasn't a typical storm.  Hope you can recover from the destruction soon and enjoy the beautiful coastal area.

SO sorry to hear this. Wishing you the best. It's a long road sometimes to get back on your feet. Hurricane Sandy hit us hard here (Oceanside, NY) and it took over 10 months for us to get back to "normal". You just need to take it one day at a time. I remember my blood would boil when we had to deal with FEMA. Good luck with everything.

I hope it gets better for you. I live in Indan Harbour Beach, Fl. and the last 2 years we had to go to a shelter and it was scary. Hugs and hang in there.

I'm sorry you are going through this. I am in Corpus Christi and used to live on Long island as a child so used to it. I hope it all gets better for you!

I sure appreciate all the comments.  


I dealt with FEMA - no help there.


Regular insurance also no help (doesn't cover the water damage).


So now waiting for the results of the Flood Insurance adjuster.


Car was damaged, so that is going in to be repaired 10/1.


Thanks again for the helpful comments.

What a Great Day!
