Visst är det tur att det finns vänner som tar sig tid att hjälpa till trots att de själva har fått sin bostad totalförstörd av orkanen Irene. Det känns underbart att äntligen ha “ögon” på plats som kan rapportera hur läget ser ut innan vi åker tillbaka.
I wanted to let you know I stopped by your home. From the outside it looks as though everything is fine. The boards are still up. The only thing I noticed was that your screens on your porch were blown out. I know Carola was worried about the neighborhood kids trying to get into the guest room but it does not appear anyone has been up there. All and all your home looks fine.
Your backyard and plants are unfortuantely another story. The tree just outside the kids room/kitchen was up-rooted and is on it’s side. The palm tree in the back is bent in half as well. The garden is covered with palms that looks as if they were swept together in a pile (perhaps by a neighbor). You still have a lot of basil though! Everything can be replanted 🙂 I think all that really needs to happen is debre clean up.
I hope that this information helps, even in the smallest way. Let me know if there is anything else that I can do to help you and your family.
