Perhaps you are wondering exactly where in Florida my new home is located? It’s northern Florida – so far north that the end of town touches Georgia. This location has it all – 4 distinct seasons (but no snow or ice), Florida tax breaks and proximity to the beach. I thought I had it all figured out – now look. the smugness of thinking I was making the perfect move has been wiped away:
The point that the Hurricane Matthew is predicted to be closest to the coast of Florida is about 50 ish miles south of where the new house is. This is grim. There’s no way those two somewhat spindly teen-aged palm tress out front are going to be able to withstand 140 mph winds.
I’m trying not to obsess about it. We’re 14 days away from closing. If the house is damaged, there’s no deal and central NJ will be home to two exquisite pineapple lamps.
