Reaching Key West through the aftermath of a hurricane
— We’ve reached Key West. I wasn’t sure what to expect about the drive through the Keys so soon after the hurricane. Some of what we saw literally made me gasp. Route 1 had mountains of debris on both sides, some so high the backhoes had to drive up them to remove them. And people were still bringing more out to the road. Our hotel apparently had its sign blown away — a temporary one was in place — but otherwise appears in good shape.
