Todays travels will take us through Mexico Beach FL which is where the Eye of Hurricane Micheal passed through. We will continue down to Chiefland Florida today.
As we left Panama City the damage to the trees became worse and Tyndall Airforce Base showed some major damage. I hate when society uses others misfortunes to make news, but it can also be a way of expressing a sincere concern for the people who are suffering through this. A lot of people only hear about this sort of thing through the large media's and sometimes it becomes a little more real when someone you know has witnessed it with there own eyes. That is what we did today and believe me what we saw was way more disturbing than pictures can show. We feel for everyone affected by this Hurricane.
The power of the wind took massive pine trees and snapped them like toothpicks.
Some of the more flexible younger trees just bent over and did not break. I wonder if it will just continue growing this way, or will it slowly straighten back up. It has been 2 months since the storm so I'm guessing it will stay.
