We bailed. Irma was heading toward us, so Lisa and I left without having 2nd thoughts. All my paintings were protect as I had wrapped, elevated, and hid them into safe places within my studio. I figured if I did not have the roof blown off, my painted babies would be ok.
After the storm passed, Lisa and I called from another town and talked to our assistant, Kassandra, who rode out the storm. She said everything was just like I had left it. So I was very fortunate and relieved.
I wish everyone that faced Irma could say the same. It was a terrible time for so many. Love and peace to those people affected.
Ah...now time for some blue skies and sunshine for everyone as we re-build and remember Irma!
