    Marathon got slammed pretty hard too, I think Porkys is still there.
    What an experience, not one I care to repeat anytime soon for sure.

    Lots of federal and state help, now for the looting, scavenging, and rent increases to make the rich richer..... not sure I will be able to stay here after this.

    Affordable housing has always been a problem in the Keys. Limited amount of land. Limits on how many new houses can be built. Which causes the few that can be built to be luxury homes.

    Now with the hurricane they won’t be replacing all the mobile homes. And any new home will have to be stilted and made of solid concrete. To even get insurance.

    Seems like you know the drill down here. It sucks.

    I wish the water would get back to normal.

    We got boats to rent !

    Me and my daughter lived across from Wendy’s in Key Largo. 2000-2007. Worked helicopters for Customs in Homestead. Love the keys. I go back every time I see my Mom in Orlando.

    Even a month later the water is still cloudy, clean up underway but it for sure dimmed the natural beauty a little bit. I still love it here all things considered.
