#Hurricane Matthew Update


hurricane-matthew-hurricane-matthew-still-092916-cebWe were spared the drastic chaos of this category 5 hurricane on the west coast of Florida where I reside. If you missed my post on #hurricane #matthew click here.

Hurricane Matthew pummeled through the east coast of Florida and continued along the coast up to South Carolina, North Carolina, and Georgia. Many, many were flooded. Cars disappeared under the high-rising waters while homes were threatened with powerful winds and water destruction along with live electrical power lines which could cause fires.

The islands of Cuba, Bahamas and Haiti were devastated. Haiti was among the worst. If you’d like to donate to their recovery fund click here.

It’s the U.S. Fund for UNICEF helps save and protect the worlds most vulnerable children.
Rated one of the best charities to donate to, 90% of every dollar spent goes directly to help children.

I’m sure there are a great many organizations asking for help.

If you can find it in your heart to donate click here – please help.


We had prepared for the impending storm. There were news broadcast announcing #HurricaneMatthew’s arrival for weeks before. Having been through a few hurricanes I took their words seriously. We were fortunate to have had no incidences at all. A lot of rain and wind was all we experienced. Our family that resides on the east coast of Florida weren’t fortunate. They were without power but managed to get through until it was restored almost 18 hours later. There is still the aftermath of cleanup that comes with these hurricanes.

We all feel truly blessed with the good fortune to have been spared any discomfort. Now, it’s time to help those who weren’t spared.

Joyously appreciative and beaming with gratitude.

Intriguing, sensitive, mysterious, loving, artistic and crackling with excitement for life is a pretty good description of who I am. I just retired from the world of art where I sold my Artfully Designed Handmade Jewelry for 28 years; although, art will always be a part of who I am no matter what venue I choose to express it in.

  1. Thank goodness you were spared and those on the east coast of the US were spared from it being worse than it was. Haiti was hit hard and does need our financial support. I hope all will help with this effort.


  2. Oh, so good to hear Matthew was merciful to you, my dear friend. 🙂


  3. It’s good to know you’re okay Issy ❤
    I can't imagine how they begin to clear up after such devastation.


  4. So glad to hear that you had no trouble from the hurricane, Izzy! We really didn’t either except for our power going off for a couple of days. Even though our house had storm windows on every window and we felt pretty secure, I had never been through a hurricane of this magnitude before. Especially since many of the models showed it coming right ashore at Sebastian…yikes! But we slept through the worst of the storm…awakening at times though to listen to the wind and rain. It went right by us and kept well offshore so we didn’t get it very bad at all. The power going out was a minor inconvenience. The water stayed on. Hope all your family and friends on the east coast sailed through it with minimal trouble.

    Namaste and love and hugs…
    Gayle xo 🙂


  5. Glad you’re safe, but you’re right, there are so many with problems. I’m happy that our church body has already been helping in Haiti.



  6. It was sad to read the devastation effects of the hurricane. I’m glad to hear you escaped it. ❤
