Hurricane Wilma hit us on October 24th, 2005

 

This hurricane was far worse than we expected.  It was probably more severe in terms of damage than any of the four hurricanes that hit us in Florida last year.  During the days that followed without power, we kept ourselves busy by taking walks and lots of photos.

A day later...

God, why hast thou...

Oh, never mind.

Typical Florida storm precautions

Four hour long gas lines

A typical scene after the storm

Police protection and intervention was required to keep people from panicking

Typical American gas-hogs: a sickening commentary on our culture of excess, engines idling for 4 hours waiting for gas with a 10 gallon limit

All of the shops in this little ocean side mall have been condemned due to the storm

Usually, there are tables and chairs from a very nice little italian restaurant here. Great wild mushroom pizza!

The sand is deep! Usually this path is clear and level.

A construction site near the beach that I thought looked interesting to photograph

Wow, that's red!

Our even sunsets

These photos were taken the first few evenings after the storm
