THE HURRICANE CHRONICLES
Above: Satellite image of Hurricane Frances 2004
Little did we know that the 2004 and 2005 Hurricane Seasons would be historic.
Now, add to that, the historic, unprecedented horrific tragedies of the 2005 Hurricane Season. You can read all about our lives during these events, both before, during and after we tangled with ten hurricanes in back-to-back hurricanes seasons. The writing is often raw and salty, but the message remains is always the same:
KNOWLEDGE, PREPARATION, & EXTREME CAUTION ARE CRUCIAL FOR SURVIVAL.
Read all about our experiences during two of the most devastating hurricanes seasons in recorded history:
~ Hurricanes Charley, Earl, Frances, Gaston, Ivan, and Jeanne ~
~ Hurricanes Dennis, Emily, Katrina, Rita, and Wicked Wilma ~
~ Hurricanes Chris and Ernesto ~
~ Hurricane Season 2007 ~
NOT ONE THREAT - YAY!!! - OVER & OUT!
~ Hurricane Season 2008 ~
Tropical Storms Fay & Ike weren't too bad. It's over!
During the time between Hurricanes Ivan and Jeanne, we found ourselves in Little Shark River needing to re-provision. We wouldn't have time to return to Marathon and then come all the way back to Little Shark. We decided to re-provision at Flamingo... and the rest is... well.... history. You sure you're ready for all this??

"HURRICANE HELL & MOSQUITO MADNESS," an email originally sent to our dear, dear friends Peggy & Edwin Aboard m/v TIEMPO.
Another is: "Escape from the Everglades."
The emails of our horrors at Flamingo during the horrific outbreak of the so-called "Hurricane Frances Mosquitoes" made the rounds all over the internet.
