This is Cam, Krissa’s brother, here with an update.
Krissa and family are fine. No flooding in their immediate area and it sounds like all they lost was a window screen and shutter. Lots of trees down in their area but none on their property. They survived the night with one extra dog and boa constrictor (pet sitting for some evacuees).
It’s interesting that they had so little damage because I was tracking the storm this morning on line and it looked to me like Ike’s eye went right over them.
They lost phone and power early in the storm and may not have it back for quite some time (weeks?).
I’m sure Krissa will give you guys the full play by play once they are back on the grid.
Anyway, if they get their phone back before their power, I’m guessing Krissa will call me and I’ll transcribe an entry or two for her.
Weather in Tuscany, Italy: Some much needed showers this morning, followed by a beautiful cool afternoon. HAHAHAHA! We’re going grape harvesting tomorrow and gonna have some good vino as our payment for what all we pick. I’d pick that over cleaning up after a hurricane ANY day.

I’ve been trying to call but power’s out (obviously).
Enjoy the vino!

Whew! Thanks for the update!
You know, that was such a brother thing to do, rubbing it in like that. Sheesh!

I am so glad to hear that everyone is okay – even the Boa.
Thanks for the update Cam!

Thanks for the update, Cam. I’m glad Krissa & family (and the zoo…ha ha) made it through. With all that I kept seeing on the news I was pretty worried. We’ll keep our fingers crossed that she gets power and phone sooner than later and that H keeps her US’s down to a minimum. 🙂

I wondered about your side. When I heard how much further north that bad boy went, I kinda thought you might get off relatively unscathed. So glad for that.

Thanks for the update Cam. I was worried about Krissa and family all weekend. Let us know when you hear more from her.
A BOA CONSTRICTOR? Those evacuees must have been VERY good friends…and they owe her BIG TIME!!!
