Hi everyone — I am writing with a glimpse into our experience with the recent hurricane. First things first, I want to note that we are totally fine; my parents, who also live in Savannah, are totally fine. We are extremely fortunate to be able to say that; this was a killer storm.

But the stress Savannah has faced, while ‘small’ in the grand scheme of things, is nonetheless real — and I wish I could say I don’t know anyone who has suffered major property damage here. While our house is fine, my parents house was hit by a tree. And they are by no means alone….
