Surviving Hurricane Sally

On September 16, 2020, Hurricane Sally hit Pensacola, Florida.  Most of the people in the community were not prepared because we were told that we were only going to get the outskirts of the storm.  However, Sally had other plans.

The storm carried high winds and lots of rain. Downtown Pensacola and some other areas were flooded, and many houses were ruined. Many trees were knocked down.  As for my house. We were lucky. We only had one tree that came down by the side of the house, however a few more inches and it would have been in my bedroom.  Other than that, the front and backyard were a mess. It’s going to take a while to get the yard cleaned up, but it can be done.

We were without power for almost two days. I was so happy when the power came back on.  It felt so good to hear the air conditioner come on again.

As far as my business, due to my limited phone plan I was unable to post regularly. ☹

Please have patience with me as I get back on my feet and answer posts, update videos and more.

I am so thankful that my family and friends are fine and well. I am praying for my city and those effected by the storm.

  1. Hurricanes are scary, first the watching to see the path, the not knowing where it will land then the actually landfall. I’m so glad your home did t get damaged. Sally just brought us the remnants of rain m. I’m hoping we don’t have any more damaging ones this season.
