Hurricane Isaias Damage
Hurricane Isaias roared through here a couple of days ago and left some damage behind here at the Tipton-Kelly Bed and Breakfast Oasis. My favorite trellis which supported a magnificent display of pink clematis earlier this summer is gone, broken in half by the fierce wind gusts of Hurricane Isaias. By the way, what's with that name "Isaias?" "Irving" wasn't available? What's next, "Hurricane Mohammed"? Just saying.
That trellis was metal, that the Isaias snapped off like a toothpick. I'll another.
We do get the fierce winds down here in southern coastal Delaware. My poor river birch trees that shade my bedroom suffered more major broken branches.
Had some damage to our home, a small piece of facie roof trim was torn loose by an Isaias gust.
On cement bird bath was overturned and a heavy clay pot planter containing hen and chickens plants was picked up and tossed down the outside cellar steps.
Ah, sometimes I daydream about living in Palm Springs, California where the threat of hurricanes and tornados is non existent. Of course the temperatures can reach 116 on an "average" summer day. Hey, it's been pretty hot around here for the past month with the heat index (which humidity) often topping over one hundred degrees.
I am thankful though because the damage around here could have been a lot worse, a LOT. Minimal damage here. Tomorrow one of my handyman neighbors is coming by to fix the roof trim.
Life goes on.
Have a great day!
