Faye in Gainesville Reports on Chumuckla

I talked to Kittye on her cell phone after the eye passed over in Chumuckla. The south side of the barn roof was blown away. The barn door was sucked in by the wind. The pear tree, the oak tree with the old basketball hoop and several pines are down.
She said the high winds lasted about forty five minutes. At one point the rain was blowing sideways and so hard that they could not see their cars that they parked in the front yard. I don't know about Grandmother's house. Donna and Bobby headed for the mountains. I hope the magnolia and the house is still standing. Have you heard from your mom? Dealing with no electricity and the heat will be difficult in the days to come.
