I live in Florida
The last 11 days have been a whirlwind
and a hurricane named Irma.
We watched the TV reports and decided that we should evacuate.
The storm was a big one and was headed right up the Florida peninsula.
So in two hours we loaded ourselves and our dog and headed out.
We drove and drove...and drove north and west until we arrived at our former home in Denver, CO
Along the way there were issues because we had 15 lb Harley.
Never mind that my children have (in the past) caused more damage than this dog could ever think of doing, at the Fairfield Inn in Milledgeville, Georgia with a reservation at 11:30 at night,
we were NOT welcome.
Thankfully we were welcome elsewhere.
After that we researched carefully on the internet where we could stay.
And we ended up at the Brown Palace in Downtown Denver.
It is a grand old lady of the hotels in Denver and they treated us, and our dog like royalty.

We got to catch up with old friends, all the while monitoring the progress of Irma up
our home state. Luckily for us, the news was good and on Tuesday morning we
set out for home. The first day we drove 800 miles, the second 650 and the last day
we drove 400. Now that is haulin'.
We are home, and it is intact!
We are so thankful!
Before we left I was working on this
The idea came from a wire sculpture in one of the homes I sold this last year.
We will get back to normal today.
Wishing you all a happy PPF!
