1115am Wednesday 

The winds have picked up dramatically. Tree fell on one of our cars. This weather is real. But we’re all ok. And we will all be ok. But we’re in for some brutal winds over the next several hours. We heard the eye shifted south and may hit Coral Bay. Pray for us folks. Pray for our island. Pray for my friends. They’re my family. I love you all. Thank you for loving us so much. We truly feel it down here. I promise you that.

    • So glad to finally get some news directly from STJ. Praying for all the wonderful people and businesses we experienced on our recent visit to coral bay…Ital, Tracey at AwlMadeHere, Lauren and husband and beautiful kids, skinny legs, aqua bistro. Miss Lucy’s, the lovely ladies at BBB, And the precious donkeys. And captain phil in Cruz bay. And imagining hurricane cove where we snorkeled, all filled with boats hoping to survive the storm.
      From West Virginia.

  1. Jenn,
    Thank you for the updates and thankful y’all are staying safe and I pray that continues. I am sorry this beast of a hurricane is tearing things up such as cars, trees, and much more i am sure. We pray for the safety of the people and this beautiful island. My stomach turned when I heard it turned back towards the island. I feel so helpless here. Keep the updates coming as long as you can. ❤ STJ

  2. I pray that God surrounds all of the islands affected by this horrific storm and protects the good people and animals that call them home…We love you, Lori

  4. Thanks so much for your posts – your insight and experience are so much more meaningful than the news clips of this unbelievable powerhouse storm. I am glad you have dogs with you.
