Our Little Cabana Is OK



  We got a call from our neighbor who was allowed back on the island today. From an outside walk around she saw no damage on roof, windows, and walls. 

 We got electricity today as was confirmed by a call from FPL the power company and our neighbor. Water will be restored hopefully by Monday, per a call from the utility. Our neighbor said there were many townhomes damaged ( siding and shingles missing ) and the tree I despise bit the dust. That tree being gone is great news, it has left its leaves on my car for the last time.

  She went inside her house and everything was fine so she thinks our Cabana next door is the same. She and her friend will not stay on the island yet as it would not be fun with no water. It was just a RECON visit.

Anchorage news says 27 murders in town so far in 2017 as compared with 34 murders total in 2016. We are not a big city, this is amazing. None in our hood yet.

  1. Glad to hear your home is fine. You are very lucky. Not so much for the murder rate even if it is slightly down. The year isn't over. I had no idea that area was so violent. 27 in a year seems like a loit to me.

    1. Thank You
      We were a bit concerned about our neighbors who call it home. We are happy that our Cabana appears to have made it unscathved. Next week our neighbor will move back in and then check inside our Townhouse. Really glad we were not down there for that event.

  3. Thank goodness you can continue the retirement principles of slowdown.org. Some place to not do much.

    1. Yes indeed. That is what I like about having the Cabana. Vacations are paced and have no real down time, so having the Cabana is fantastic for me in the Winter. Not leaving the house for three days is needed sometimes.
