The first two days after the hurricane wasn't so bad with regard to the heat. There was a nice breeze left over from the storm. Having no TV was a nightmare with two rug rats at home from school. We kept our phones charged by sitting in our cars until they were charged so the kids had something to do. Can't say we (the adults) didn't benefit from the AC in the car, too. Having a pool was also a nice way to escape the heat and boredom. One day we lucked out that the local bowling alley was open and spent some time there.
This little fella was spotted out by our pool right after the storm blew through. He's a beauty, isn't he? The animals were really out during the week of the hurricane. We had cranes, and a tortoise come by, too.
