Tropical Storm Fay was kind to RMI!

Tropical Storm Fay made landfall much earlier and further south than had been predicted, putting Ft. Myers and Lehigh Acres where the RMI office, Dan Shoemaker's home and Rob Thompson's home is located on the "tame" left side of the storm. The same was true for Herb and Shirley Shoemaker's home in Naples. There was flooding (over 5" of rain!) and some fierce winds, but no damage to the office nor any of our homes. The wind did set off the office alarm. The police responded within about 5 minutes and found nothing amiss.

Hurricane Andrew, 14 years ago (August 24, 2002) is still fresh in our minds, so we are all very thankful for God's mercy and protection during TS Fay!

Here is a picture of Dan & Debbie's neighbor's yard just to give you an idea of the rainfall.
