When a Tree Falls

I’m just about done picking up the fallen tree limbs after Hurricane Dorian passed by.It reminded me of how lucky we in north Florida were that the storm was far enough offshore that the wind didn’t do more damage.I can still remember the damage Hurricanes Matthew and Irma inflicted when they came through town.So, I thought I’d take a few moments to cover what to do when the next named storm puts Jacksonville in the crosshairs and trees in your neighborhood take a tumble.

Helping Your Pets Ride Out the Storm

Thankfully as I write this blog, I’m breathing a sigh of relief that Hurricane Dorian gave Jacksonville a wide berth.That being said, hurricane season isn’t over yet.That means another named storm could head this way within the next couple of months.While I’ve covered what you need to do to prepare for the worst for both your home and business, the last area of concern for many is what to do with their pets.Believe it or not, this can adversely affect the decision to evacuate, since many pet owners would rather shelter in place rather than have to risk being on the road in an emergency with their pets.If you’re a pet owner who lives in Florida, you need to read this week’s blog.
