I have been writing so many personal emails to friends and family who were concerned about how our building survived the Category 2 Hurricane, Dolly, which hit the Texas coast last Wednesday, that I totally forgot that I had not posted an update here.
Friday morning, I received official word from the contractor that we did not have any damage. A few shingles were lost from a partially shingled roof, a porta-potty washed or blew away, and our sign was knocked over but has been restored to its proper position.
I am feeling tremendously fortunate, lucky, and just plain thankful. I guess all those building codes and construction extras really are worth it.
Anyway, I just wanted to let those of you who I haven't heard from know that things are ok. Power needs to be restored before the contractor can have access to the island and construction can continue. But that is a minor issue, considering what we could have been facing.
