As some of you may know, I live in the capitol of Florida, in the United States. This means that this week something big blew our way, Hurricane Michael!
Yes, I was one of the many of people who live in Forida, Georgia and South Carolina when Michael, the Category 4 Hurricane, decided to vacation in our neck of the woods. Micheal is the largest hurricane to hit the Florida panhandle in over 80 years! I have to say, it was truly terrifying.
We were some of the lucky ones, and still are. While our area got hit HARD, with thousands of trees down in our town alone, the coast was hurt more than most (look up some of the YouTube videos of the destruction, it looks like Fallout came to Florida).
I just wanted to pop up and update telling everyone that my family and I made it out of the hurricane okay (I sadly don’t have any pictures, having to have conserved my phone power as much as possible in case of an emergency), and we finally have power restored to my house. This means that I was really unable to work on any new pages of Kokoro No Kinu Chapter 4 during the hurricane (seriously, have you ever tried drawing by candlelight?), and it messed up my whole Inktober submissions, but I should have another page up sometime next week, if not sooner. I have a lot of clean up to do around the house (as well as grocery shopping, since we had to clean out the refrigerator) but I’ll try to work hard to get that done as well.
If you can, please consider donating something or your time to help others effected by Hurricane Michael, it was a terrible storm, and the people on coast really need help right now, many are still without power and homes, and as of right now, 13 people have died from the storm, so anything could help. I’m not sure about donations or anything, you’ll have to look that up.
Still, this was just an update telling you all that I was in Hurricane Michael’s path, I made it out okay, we now have power, and please help those in need if you can.
