Views of Irma

Here is the view out of our front door.  You see we do have a wall that protects the front of the house from low flying objects.  You can see there is no water in the road and Patty’s truck is safe in the driveway.   We put all the patio furniture in the garage as well as the three potted blueberry plants.

This is the view from the dinning room window.  This is the neighbor’s house and that tree on the corner of the house hide their bedroom window but as the winds get bad it must bang on their window also which I would not like.  Also it is a super highway for ants and other bugs to get into the house!  You can see we don’t have much wind right now.

This is the view from our bedroom window.  That little orange thing in the right hand corner is just the reflection from the camera and not something in the Savanna.   We back up to the Savannas.  It is here where all our wild life lives and what makes it so nice and quiet in this corner of the village.

This gives you a bench mark and I will get pictures from these three angles so you can see how the storm progresses.  You can see from the Savannas when the wind increases, right now there are a few gusts that come through but not enough to bother anything.

About Carol (Ouma) Petts

I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.
