First, let me give you the back story: we fled to Gainesville on the prior Sunday to escape Hurricane Dorian. After nearly 24+ hours pretty much glued to the TV nervously watching the growth and progress of that monster storm, we awoke Tuesday morning, and learned our home and community would not be struck by the category 5 we had feared. Dorian had “wobbled” to the east and spent much of her fury over the Atlantic.
And so, we sallied forth to explore Gainesville, the largest city in North Central Florida; the Alachua County Seat; and home of the University of Florida.
Here are the photos:
It was a relief to return home and find no structural damage!!! The worst that Dorian wrought along our coast was beach erosion. We were so very lucky!!! Others felt the brunt of this category 5 hurricane and our hearts ache for the people in the Bahamas. They suffered the full fury and devastation of this monster storm.
