It was sobering to drive down the highway and an hour from the coast to see the destruction to the taller pines that have been here forever. Tops clipped, bark stripped. Many of the railroad crossing gates used to make I16 go one way – west – were broken or bent. Of course, NONE of the Crepe Myrtles planted in the median that the cops hide behind came down. Nope.
According to our neighbor, there are 100 trees down in the neighborhood. Half of them came down on roofs. Our neighbor’s fence and new AC unit are destroyed. There are trees in living rooms and kitchens.
They say Savannah is a mess.
My frig will get cleaned out completely tomorrow. I’m told there is somewhere giving food vouchers and such. We’re going to need it.
