I am back online - just had utilities restored this morning after 4 days of no utilities including ability to use showers or flush toilets very well. Our house was undamaged in spite of vey large and heavy branches crashing down on roof druing the storm. We have a metal roof and it held up so well.Lots of debris in yard my younger on started tackling a chunk at a time each day. Older son in Jacksonville - hardest hit in the entire state.They kept being told might have to mandatory evac but they didnt = their street flooded but water did not get inside. Oldest dd had a few terra cotta tiles blow off roof and still w/o utilities but they are used to camping and have an outdoor kitchen all set up. All kids were very proactive in prparing for and protecting family and property and it paid off . Biggest miracle f ll was that our middle daughter (still tear up at this) had fully prepared that their double wide home would not be there when they returned and had made long term arrangements to live elsewehere after. It went through 100 MPH plus wmds w/o any damage. What i have seen is people learning that they need to prepare adequately and people need to be more dependant on other PEOPLE for help and helping others.Not govt agencies that just cant meet all of the needs

We made it home safely. We stopped at our hotel in Savannah, but the room was musty and would kick off Kitten's asthma, so we could not stay there. I'm sure that someone was super happy when that room came available! But we decided to keep driving, as we were 4 hours from home.

We got home at 2am. We did not see the devastation around because it was dark. There is very limited gas in our area, though we can drive to a highway and find gas at the stations there. Many people are still without power, and it's both sad and also heartwarming because all of the people are helping all of the people.

Our air conditioner is completely dead, so today we are getting quotes to replace it. At least we can run fans, and I have an ice pack with me at all times. I feel awful for the people who don't have power! We're doing what we can to help (making ice for others!)

I'm going to take a nap now.

We are home, lots of driving backroads from Atl to Sav but here safe. Our area fared well, so much better than Matthew last year wind wise, some places had worse flooding. A friend came very very close to some bad flooding but it peaked and then receded *just* in time. Most people I know have had power restored and minimal cleanup! A few places I'm worried about not being able to recover after devastating 2 storms less than a year apart - the place on Tybee we take homeschooling beach classes, Hunting Island State Park in SC, etc.
