I am fortunate that there is only the yard to clean up after the hurricane, however backbreaking I may personally find that work to be. Yes, there are branches down and leaves everywhere, but there’s no significant damage to the house, and we are dry. This particular location was very lucky – one street over and a few blocks down, there was water everywhere. Trees are down on power lines everywhere and significant power outages across the island. Never mind what’s happened upstate and Vermont. Thankfully, I still won’t need to use the hurricane rider or flood insurance for the house.
