    Connie, I am glad to hear that you and family are Ok.
    I have had the experience of clean-up after Hurricanes have passed so I know exactly how you feel when you look out and see the mess. Do it in steps, a little at a time and slowly you will be back up and running again.
    My best wishes

    Sorry to hear you had some damage as well. It is amazing the damage a tornado can do in such a short amount of time. I really appreciate everyones well wishes. We are the lucky ones on the block. We have had so many people help us out. The yard almost looks normal again. When I have time to get everything back into pots and baskets I'll start figuring out a new way to tie shelves down. lol Thanks again everyone...

    Seeing the damage you have there reminds me of the damage we had here a few months ago from a couple of major hail storms, but with out all the build up of ice. Just glad you and yours are all ok, after all orchids are replaceable and you are not.

    Glad to hear that you and your family are doing ok being a survivor of hurricane Andrew I know what you are going though but slowly and with patience you will get back to normal again. Sorry to hear that you lost some of your beautiful orchids but they can be replaced. Best of luck

    Oh, Connie. I am so glad to hear you and your family are ok. From the other side of the country, we can only hear and see a very small piece of what you all had to go through. Best wishes.

    My partner, Mike's mom, who lives in Spring Hill was saying the rain gauge level was going up while she was on the phone last night.

    Sorry you lost some Vandas Connie. It makes me feel better that your already getting your property back to a more normal state and I sincerely hope that this tropical storm and its consequences are over sooner than later. AL

    Boy, what a mess, but it could be much worse, so think positive and you will get through it.
    Good luck!
