W^2 or W squared for Wordless Wednesday, March 31, 2021
Hurricane Irma came ashore on just east of this location on September 10, 2017. Irma was a category 4 hurricane with winds in over 100 mph and a storm surge of 6 to 10 feet. She left behind damaged homes, buildings, and this condominium complex in her wake. Most were able to rebuild, but for some the damage was too great to rebuild. Sometimes, it’s easier just to start over. Making the Days Count, even when I must press the reset button and begin again.
When was the last time you pressed re-set?*
*Full disclosure, I went back to ”play’ with Adobe Photoshop and decided to add a black and white version of the photo.

Difficult days back then, with more to come …
I am afraid you are correct…. I love visiting the Keys but I saw the damage done by the storm when we were here 6 months after the hurricane. There are still places that are abandoned and places that have yet to be restored or possibly will ever be restored like our favorite beach which was wiped away by the storm surge. I hope you are doing well and staying safe. Peace.
UPDATE – March 2023: Two years later, the site remains unimproved and is still for sale. I suppose money and risk are factors to consider.
