It's a good thing I had to in go to the bathroom in the middle of the night. Must have been all the water I was surrounded by! The surge came in the middle of the night! Water everywhere, again. Even though my slippers had floated away it wasn't above my hammock. The dogs had gotten on the highest deck and the cats had sought out higher ground in the house, so I went back to bed. Not much I could do that I hadn't already done. The difference from "Debbie" is that I woke up to a sunny day.
I haven't gotten out to take pictures but seeing that it's such a lovely day I think I'll take the dogs to the beach. I doubt it'll be very crowded seeing that they made all the visitors leave at 8:00 a.m. yesterday. But they won't close the bridge unless the winds get up to 50 mph. Not much of a chance of that now. And I have power. I hate to sound spoiled but that's HUGE. That cup of coffee tasted mighty good this morning!
So all and all, not bad. It's just a matter of waiting for the water to go down and that will depend a lot on the tides. Since high tide is at 1:30 this afternoon I don't think it'll recede much today. But I can sit out on my high deck, and along with the rest of the island life that has sought out higher ground, catch some rays. Life is good.
It's a beautiful day in paradise. Outside. Not so much in my house. But I'm not spending my day in there so who cares!
