Hurricane Irma Update

For all our northern friends WE ARE DOWN BUT WE ARE NOT OUT. Key West is set to re-open October 20th, but please keep in mind that date can fluctuate depending on our progress.  I will say in my 60 years of life in Key West this is the worst hurricane to hit the Florida Keys. For Key Westers who fled we can only sit back helplessly and watch the devastation from afar. We are finally going to be allowed back Sunday September 17th to put our lives back together and help our community do the same. For those who stayed behind including our Mayor Craig Cates, my best friend Tim Turso who works for the water company and the many city workers that are putting in long hours to clean up and turn on our city again they are all true heroes {although not to bright LOL] They have had to endure truly primitive conditions, with food and water quickly running out they were basically cut off from the world. As our resources return slowly but surly we were finally able to communicate with them, and there stories of survival and struggle are truly harrowing. My hat and heart go out to them. In the meantime myself and the news will announce our re-opening. Till then please say a prayer on our behalf, and we cant wait to see our friends from up north again. Please follow us on facebook to see some video footage of Hurricane Irma.
