We in SW Fl were spared her wrath but also her welcome rain. Is it too early to hear of possible storm damage to our friends on the East coast? I hope you all survived with minimal dmages.. Joe

Nuthin' much to talk about in Broward county. We got a little wet and
breezy, that's all. But, the beaches are very, very badly damaged. Much of
that damage has been caused by the very heavy winds we have experienced
over the past two weeks.

Dear Joe,

Apart from wet lawns and some
blown-over potted plants, nothing bad here!

Rainfall and flooding, no problem.
Wind, strong but nothing extreme.
Additional gray hair, severe.

Friday we looked Michelle in the eye, loaded a trailer full of aroids,
and drove off to West Palm Beach to do an aroid exhibit at the Mounts
Botanical Garden sale on Saturday. Other loonies that participated in
this act of denial were President Scott Hyndman, Julius Boos, Charlotte
Green, and Elizabeth Mateus.

Hmmm... Are you sure it is not caused by sand starvation caused by jetties and revetments upcurrent? Or maybe development on former dune systems?

Certainly building on the beach has something to do with how the damage
manifests itself. No question about it. But the fact is that many areas of
the beaches that are close to virgin are badly damaged also.

Michelle was too close for comfort! No severe wind or rain in Homestead.
Thank God it went somewhere else.
