Archive for Hurricane Michael

2018 was a wild ride!

It’s hard to believe we’re already almost through February 2019! On October 10, 2018, Hurricane Michael blew into the Florida Panhandle with landfall at Mexico Beach and Tyndall AFB. It’s the worst storm I’ve seen here and devastating doesn’t really describe what we lived through but we are safe and will rebuild.

The good news is the recovery is going well, at least in St. Joe.  Cleanup continues for miles but at least we are now able to drive from St. Joe to Panama City without long unsafe detours. Downtown St. Joe and the marina area have some work to go but businesses are slowly coming back to life in our small community. Mexico Beach is just beginning it’s recovery.

If you’ve been here there are miles of coastline which won’t look the same as the last time you visited. If you’ve never been, you can see the rebuilding. There is a lot still to do for many miles but we are Florida strong!

The good news is that we are fishing in St. Joe Bay. Need to get away, warmer weather is coming and we are ready to fish.
