After Hurricane Florence

In Raleigh we did not receive the worst of Hurricane Florence. The electricity did go off at 5 am Friday morning and did not come back on until 1pm Saturday,

In the middle of the storm the Colchicums bloomed! They are like giant fall crocus:

And a moonflower

And Passion flower

Here are some photographs from around Raleigh:

The Coast and Wilmington area are much worse…

  2. I’m glad you are OK. I have been wondering how my blogger friends were doing in that area.

  3. I haven’t seen my autumn crocus this year. Maybe the summer drought has seen it off.
    Anyway, the hurricane sounds horrible – I’m glad your electricity is back on. A power cut of an hour is frustrating enough!

    I wonder how the animals faired during the storm? Was there any rescue groups out helping the animals in the Carolina’s?

    Did you have any damage from Hurricane Michael down there in the Carolina’s?

    Wow it’s a shame that people leave their animals behind when a storm comes. Most shelters are pet friendly. Did you help in any of the rescue efforts

    It’s already getting cold up North. Can you send some of that hot air from the Carolina’s up here. I’m sitting on my porch drinking an ice cold Pepsi and eating a moon pie and it’s already freezing. Some Carolina barbecue also would be appreciated.
