Was wondering myself. Somewhere in FL I guess. We don't hear much about FL recovery.

The FL Keys between Largo and Key West were smashed by Irma. Almost all the trailer parks there and in the Naples area were demolished. I have a friend who is a conch with family holdings strung throughout the Keys mostly from Marathon south. Her family lost everything manmade that wasn't in Key West. However, with Largo and Key West functional, the Keys are open for business.

It took about a month to have power fully restored in the Tampa Bay area. Lots of big oak trees downed.Trash haulers and roofers headed south so there still is debris on the sides of streets, particularly in Tampa.

When Hurricane Nate passed by the West Coast of FL, it added to a King tide that brought water over docks and into lower lying neighborhoods. Not much damage, but really interesting phenomena.

Alana is in Lady Lake - and there was some wind there for sure from Irma.

Alana is living in central Florida these days. But I believe she still has her home on Island. So she maybe down there on St. Thomas checking on her homestead. My wife will be traveling to St. Thomas in a few days for a funeral, her mother passed away a couple of days ago. Unfortunately I will not be able to go since I have health issues and medical help is not up to speed yet.
