Thanks Hamata for the accurate reporting! Yep! we're alive and well, if not a little battered. Still no electricity. We have a generous neighbor with a generator who provides us with power a few hours a day. Can't run anything that eats lots of juice, however-no hot water heaters or stoves. But the computer or TV are okay. Later, Michelle will post pics of the destruction.
The Sarracenia are fine. Just beat up. All the fine looking leuco traps...well...you'll see in a pic soon.
The greenhouse is one strong mutha. It was totally stripped of covering and shadecloth. We watched as 120 mph + winds made 12 foot 4x4 s flex like they were rubber. My big fear was the possibility of just one of them snapping, the integrity of the whole structure would be gone and thus the wind would systematically take the rest of it apart.
Within one day had new layer of plastic over the top and on the west and north sides to cut the cold dry wind from blowing across Neps like ampullarias, bicalcaratas and sumatranas. Overall, things are looking good, if not a bit sunburnt and a little dessicated. The big plants took the most wind damage. Big Mama's main vine is intact, but the upper-most leaves were torn. Interesting to see the effects of such adverse conditions to hit one after the next. All within 48 hours they were subjected to 120+ mph wind, 48 degree F night, 30 percent relative humidity, full blazing sun. Maybe we've stressed them enough to get some flowers!
Will post pics sometime soon.
