Maria & Angel Paws Update

It looks like Maria will be well to the east of us.  When we saw the five day forecast there was a ripple of relief through our pack.  We hope Herricane Maria does little damage to those that are in her path.

A paw in Key West told us the fence around Angel Paws is intact.  The big Australian Pine and both Mahogany trees were uprooted by Herricane Irma.  We will miss or shade trees.  When we get back to Key West, we will have to check out Angel Paws.

Watching Maria In The Tropics

Bowsers, just when we were starting to relax, another evil tropical storm is on the horizon.  This one is Tropical Storm Maria.  We are worried, but the path is to far out to say how it will impact Florida.  We are trying to bark it away from Florida.  Sigh.
Maria, please go north and visit the Atlantic Ocean
Wish we could post pawtographs, but Dad left his connection between the computer and the camera.  We are having a blast playing in Gandalf's enormous back yard.  That yard is the size of Angel Paws.  
Dog Dad's place of work will be out of Miami for awhile.  He told us that while he is in Miami, that we will be staying with Gandalf's pack.  We thought about arguing with him, but we know he is right.  This will be tough because we don't like being away from Dad.

Grrrreat News

We received a call this morning and this evening.  The first was from Dad's neighbor Bob.  Bob walked or property noted one of our roof turbines flew off, and that at least one of our sheds were crushed by the other neighbors Brazilian Pepper trees.  The rest of the house looked good.

Then his neighbor Frank from across the street called.  He relayed that the house looked good, one of the gutters were missing, the one palm tree fell down, the PVC pipes around the house looked good too.  He said his house took minimal water, which means there was no flood water in our home.  The electricity was on as our AC was running.

We are all happy.  Dad even did a funny dance.

12 September 2017

First we are all okay.  Power came on about two hours ago.  We can feel Gandalf's home cooling off.  Which makes for two happy collies and a Dog Dad.  We appreciate everyone prayers and concerns.  The good will of people is a contrast to many other things going on in the world.
Our House Still Has a Roof
As for our house it still has a roof, which is a good thing.  We are trying to figure out where one of the palm trees disappeared to in the front yard.  We can see the shadow of one but not the other that is in the front yard.  Use the following link to access NOAA imagery of Key West and some of the rest of the lower keys.

While we will be sad to loose some things, it is only things.  We have each other, which is the important things.  

We are sure there are a thousand questions, we have them too.  We can see the imagery of our house, but we have no idea what the inside looks like.  Dad expected to see only the foundation, so he was amazed to see the roof.  Dad is unsure of what work will be doing as well.  

We would try to send pawtographs, but Dad can't find the camera thingy that attaches to the puter.

11 September 2017

We still have power.  Expect to see things to get worst around 2 AM.   Hopefully we can still post later in the day.  If not we will ask one of Dad's siblings to post on the orange and yellow orange back.

10 September 2017

We are expecting a long night.  There will be Herricane winds tonight, so we will probably huddle with Dad during the night.  The entire pack will be tired tomorrow morning.

We appreciate your thoughts and prayers.

We Are Doing Okay

We'll cyberpaw pals we are hanging in there.  We wish we were further away, but we were worried about being in traffic and getting hit by Irma.  Being in Eustis, don't have to worry about storm surge.

If you want to follow the storm there is post called Orion Rising that Essex and Deacon wrote.  That post will allow you to follow those hurricane weather tracking sites.

Our host is our pal Gandalf, who has stayed with us in Key West.  It has been fun visiting him.  Above are the three of us resting together.
