We're Alive, but battered. At a friends house where they have power and internet! Awesome. We were very lucky to lose nothing that can't be replaced, the baby girl is happy, healthy, and seems baffled by all the mud in the house. She's dying to play in it but it smells a lot like untreated sewage. Things in Al Ghubra not so good, but others have it worse.
Our hurricane by the numbers:
Cars written off = All four we think.
Refrigerators floating in the kitchen = 3
spoiled food in pounds = 300
Downstairs furniture soaked= 100%
Bottles of gin consumed =2 and counting
number of times Authourities Cursed for lack of information on the radio =10,222,576,127,441
But we've got everything that really matters. The family.
more in a week or so.
