I'm sorry I should have put in an update, but with working and visiting my husband in the nursing home every other day, and the Irma cleaning up I just forgot.
I consider myself extremely lucky, We were in an area that actually never lost electric, or TV or even wifi. I was a nervous wreck , especially with hubby not being here and having the full responsibility of "kids" and house etc. But some how we dodged the bullet and only had a big clean up to attend to.
Thank you so much for asking. And if you wondered what I did with the ferrets, I moved their big condo into the laundry room which had no windows and in the center of the house. Before it got dark, I put them in there in case we lost electric. Since they are free roamers I would need to know where they were if something unforseen happened. They slept through everything and there sure was a lot of howling with the winds. Oh and when I saw big condo, it barely fits through the doors, so it was quite the job to move it.
I'm still sore from moving patio furniture inside and taking hoses off the outside of the house and moving them into the garage. My husbands nursing home lost electric Sunday night, but they had generators and were prepared with 10 days worth of food and they actually were almost fully staffed. The only thing he complained about was a couple of days they had sandwiches for lunch LOL, they didn't get electric back until Thursday. But during this time they continnued all his PT and OT services which I was really happy about.

Glad to hear your update. I have one son in Crescent City (I'm supposed to visit next week) and they lost power until Sat AM. Their well pump got blown out by lightning as well. My other son is in Lakeland (rode out the storm with his brother) and even tho the eye wall went right over they never lost power and he was at work Tuesday.

I had a couple of friends that lived in Sarasota and they went north to Jacksonville and then got hit worse than if they had stayed at home. Now I'm waiting to hear from friends in Puerto Rico after the devastation of Maria as well as Irma. The wait for news is heartbreaking
