Default Now Jeanne has me pissed!

Another two trees are down and the damage is worse than what we had with Frances. I moved the two new cars to a vacant lot this morning and its a good thing. A tree along the driveway snapped and surely would have crushed them both.

The top of a pine tree snapped and put a branch right through the roof and into the kitchen, destroying the ceiling and overhead lights and cabinets. There's a 6" branch coming through the ceiling, through the cabinets and into the built in microwave. Mrs. Thomas was standing there a few seconds before it hit and it surely would have killed her had she not moved.

I now have 4 holes in my roof and trash cans all over collecting the water. And they are telling us the worse is yet to come. Ugh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Regards,
Thomas (who is thankful for laptops and satellite cards so I can check in)

Thomas that is just plain scarey and downright awful! Thank goodness you are both o.k., I'm sure Mrs. T. is a little shakey, I know I would be!

You were just talking about replacing a car, goodness you might have been doing that again, too!

I'm glad you are both safe and you have every reason to be rather "PO'd'" at Jeanne!!!

Thanks for checking in, wish things were better for you!

I am glad to hear no one was injured. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help. Jeanne was much worse than Frances. I heard a large crackling today and witnessed half a tree falling onto cars in my parking lot. Thank goodness I pay extra for the garage.

Stay safe Thomas and keep checking in.

Thomas stay safe. The roof and the cars can be replaced, you and Mrs Thomas can not.

Thomas & Mrs. T,

So sorry about your roof. So, so, so glad that you are both ok. Continuing to pray for you, and all of Florida. It is tough on the nerves. We are waiting to hear from my elderly uncle. We don't know if he evacuated this time or not. He lives in Stuart. Will be relieved only when we hear that all we know and love are o.k.

Thomas, I am so glad to hear that Mrs. Thomas is ok and was out of danger. I lost one good friend that way a few years ago, and those trees near houses always make me uncomfortable now.

I'm not happy to hear that your house has been damaged though, and that you are now going to have to go through the ordeal of living with it and getting it fixed. I don't blame you for being angry about that.

Please take care. The most important thing is that you and Mrs. Thomas are ok.

Phyll

Thomas, this is one more reason for Mrs. Thomas to stay out of the kitchen! Seriously though, glad she was not hurt. It's too bad we all live so far apart....would love to pitch in and help with clean-up and repairs.

Oh Thomas! My sister in Lakeland told me this one was worse, but now I KNOW it is! I'm so sorry about your kitchen. It gave me shivers when I heard about where Mrs. Thomas was standing. You both must be living right.....

Take care and know you both are in my thoughts and prayers. Good luck with the clean-up.

Thomas,
So glad that you are both okay. I feel very fortunate that we have had only minor damage and nothing that can't be fixed easily. Hope we are done for the year as we certainly had more than our share.
Jim

Wow Thomas your wife was lucky. Now comes the hassle with the insurance.
I just never stay here, because when they close the bridge, that is it.

It is so stressful that I wonder somtimes why we stay. Take care
