    Thanks for checking in. I was wondering how you were. Things can be replaced. People can't.

    Great news for once! We all saw the videos of the aftermath on St Croix with trees and power poles down everywhere. Looks like it will take a while before you have power again.

    I'm really relieved to hear that you made it through that devastating storm. I know you look forward to regaining some semblance of your life.
    When I see the total loss some suffered from these storms I feel lucky.
    We're still waiting for the contractors to put a new roof on the house, and the interior squared away. The tree guys are coming back late next week to take down two more trees before the next big wind puts them on our roof also. A gigantic Laurel oak is now leaning over the house and Mrs injax isn't going to sleep well until it's gone. Can't say I'll miss it either; scary!

    I had feared for your safety, glad you came out unharmed.

    You gave us both a nail biter, and an up-close perspective of this nasty storm. Happy to hear that it wasn't a life-changing catastrophe for you & your family, and that you're gearing up to move ahead. Best wishes to you all.

    Got cell service back last night at the house
    Still no internet there. Have to drive about 7 miles to get internet with a personal hotspot
    Power will be out for months. Governor says by xmas... I'm betting Easter. The need for poles will exceed 20,000 just for us. STT & STJ needs more
    I heard the greatest sustained wind (1 minute or more) was 176mph. I can easily believe it
    Heading off to work. Gotta keep those gas tanks filled for the genset
    teletimetx, dkmw and Wallo Tweed like this.

    Great to hear from you, I've been wondering about you every day since the storm hit. I'm glad that you and yours made it through safe.

    Slowly there seems to be a return to some form of normalcy.
    Cell service has been steady for a couple of days now.
    The satellite guy should be here in a day or so.
    Broadband is still down with no idea when they'll be up. Luckily I can get internet on my phone. Sporadically but something
    The sound of generators & chainsaws are a constant melody. This is the new normal
    We may be able to save the papaya trees & the carambola has some new sprouts. New life amongst the devistation
