Day 204 of Safer-at-Home here in Panama City Beach, Florida. Today’s statistics from Florida’s Community Coronavirus Dashboard for Bay County are 6,355 cases and 118 deaths, and for Florida are 792,368 cases and 19,945 deaths. Bay County School District reports 3 new cases, for a total of 61, and 122 staff/students are in quarantine. One of my crafty friends is in ICU with the virus, which one of her grandchildren brought home from school.
Well, I finally got internet. It only took a week, four technicians, and three visits to their local office, as I had given up on their on-line customer service almost immediately. To tide me over I had bought an extra 2 GB of data for my devices, but that ran out.
The restoration company is still working on my house, flooded by Hurricane Sally. They have dried it out with fans, and have just sanitized it. But there is a new storm brewing in the gulf. I am hoping for the best. I have been trying to get someone out to look at my property and what I can do to create better drainage of my lot. But to no avail, but I will keep trying. And I have not gotten the insurance estimate yet, so am on hold on what to do next.
Luckily my workshop is okay, and I spent some time there today getting ready for week three of my liquid enameling class at GCSC’s Education Encore program. The subject this week is Lusters and organics. Of course I forgot the sand, which I wanted to experiment with. So I will do that tomorrow.
I am still getting settled in my small temporary home. I need to get a comfy chair and a desk. But at least Moonie, my cat, has settled down and seems at home. And there are some finishing touches that the unit needs, such as light switch covers and vent covers. Mary, my daughter, whose rental unit I am staying in, does a little whenever she has time. I am the dry run for when she makes it a seasonal rental.
