Coping with Irma!

Recommended Posts

I don't think I've ever seen a news report on TV about what is done for the zoo animals in these major storms.

MSNBC and CNN both ran stories several times about the zoo animals in Houston and in Miami and showed the flamingos in the men's room and other animals.

I thought is was amusing that so many of the flamingos were looking in the mirror!

I've seen a flamingo in a Men's Room a time or two.

Me too, but it was an entirely different type of bird.  :P

I was actually wondering about the animals. When I was a lil'un we visited Miami and what was then Parrot Jungle. For years we had the obligatory photo of boy (moi) being weighted down by seven parrots. Those suckers were heavy! Hope they (or their descendents) made it through.

The remenants of Irma have passed thru my area with a little rain. Now the focus is on Jose which may pass close to my area of Southeast PA.

My aunt and cousin live in Alachua, Florida. It's about 20 miles north of Gainesville and/or 70 miles southwest of Jacksonville, sort of in the middle of the state east-to-west. They didn't have any flooding at their house, even though there was flooding in parts of Alachua. They didn't lose power, even though other parts of Alachua did. They were very lucky.
