飓风过后的圣奥古斯丁怎么样:为游客准备好了?

圣奥古斯丁,飓风马修,佛罗里达州,水景,悬挂植物,门廊,秋千,Despite the very dramatic footage from the news, 圣奥古斯丁 is doing well in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew (is 那 called the aftermatthew?)

There are lists of businesses 那 are open in many areas–check augustine.com or the 圣奥古斯丁 脸书 page for more information on 那. Rather than share a list, I thought I’d在这里给您我的情况概述“on the ground”. As you may know, Mike and I think 那 vacations are absolutely essential–both our guests’和我们自己的假期。所以我’如果我要去圣奥古斯丁,我会分享我想知道的事情。

Let me say this again: I am not saying 那 this is a definitive list. It isn’t. This is just an overview of businesses 那 I know and have seen…这完全取决于我’最近几天我不得不开车过去。所以在这里’s my update:

首先,暴风雨。我们没有留下,而是按照要求撤离了城镇,所以我可以’t speak to how bad it was on October 7, during the height of the storm. I saw the same images 那 you saw–the panicked people “stuck”在蒂尼·马提尼酒吧(Tini Martini Bar)中,海湾潮水冲过海堤,从堡垒上盘旋而过,水从弗拉格勒学院的门口涌出。

我确实知道留下来的人,他们画的画与我在电视上看到的不同–我们住在市中心的朋友家中只有一两英寸的水,距离海湾白帽不到三个街区。我们所有住在疏散区外的员工直到7日下午才断电–几乎每个人都告诉我们,这还没有他们想象的那么糟糕。

当然,我想亲自看看。

今天仅是暴风雨过后的五天,而某些地区的疏散命令取消后仅三天。坦白说,该镇的反弹情况令人惊讶。

I would say 那 a minimum of 85% of restaurants are open. Few of them were in the way of the water 那 came over the seawall–most were closed because of minor leaks, a lack of electricity, and the need to clean out their food stores as the electricity was off for an unknown amount of time (unknown to me, anyway. I will tell you 那 at my house, which is downtown on Saragossa Street, the milk was still good in the refrigerator, so the electric could not have been off for long on my street).

在整个一周中(再次,暴风雨从这里吹出,威胁到另一个沿海地区后的几天),我们收到了来自餐馆的电子邮件:Collage已开放,已保存,哥伦比亚和佛罗里达。我们开车经过雨树,并看到他们昨晚在外面的客人座位上(说到外面,本周的天气简直太壮观了)。莫乔’开设了汉堡桶,枫树街饼干公司和玛雅之家;在Vilano,180 Grill和Benedetto上’s的菜单很棒,欢迎客人。

今天早上我们刚收到一封电子邮件,说迈克’最喜欢的午餐站-蓝色母鸡(Blue Hen)开放。有两个地方确实让我们感到惊讶:Back 40 UrbanCafé几乎在水坑干before之前就开了,在大雨中它泛滥在那条街上,所以我们以为它会受到严重破坏(这显然不是’t). OC White’s,距离我们只有一个街区,而他们的新姐妹餐厅Chatsworth’s都在昨天开放,并且就在海湾上(业主昨晚与我们分享了建筑物上的花木held住了水,以及他在暴风雨前强迫性地起泡沫并粘贴了所有门窗)。海螺之家向天堂开放’的缘故,在隔离岛上,就在水面之上!

如果您来圣奥古斯丁(我们希望您这样做),并且饿了,就会发现很多吃饭的地方。

I was likewise surprised 通过 the stores 那 were untouched–圣马可城(Uptown San Marco)看起来很棒,所有有趣的商店都开业了:木兰供应,西班牙荷兰公司,DHD 首页s,露丽’s, and Juniper Market. I did not see anything there 那 even suggested a big storm blew through less than a week ago.

他们说圣乔治街大部分是开放的,尽管我还没有’我自己走到那里(我需要–but I’你一直很忙’待会见)。尽管国王街最底层的餐馆(过去是莱特纳博物馆,例如咯咯声的鳄鱼和香精)确实有卖,但国王街最顶端的商店(最靠近狮子桥的商店)几乎都开了。损伤。制冰厂说他们’将关闭几天,但他们’他们清理好一切后便会打开…仅仅几天。

圣塞瓦斯蒂安酿酒厂和卡梅洛’s,在我上周看到的一张照片中看起来都在2英尺深的水下,都打开了,乔治(Georgie)也都打开了’晚餐,在他们身后。他们的海拔必须比我意识到的高。

我们坚固的堡垒今天重新开放–I’我猜想国家公园管理局(National Park Service)希望对其进行检查,并在向公众开放之前确保其客人的安全。海盗博物馆开放,灯塔和鳄鱼农场也开放。闪电船和弗拉格勒学院也将在明天开放。

如果您想享受我们的景点,那就过来–they’re ready for you.

In terms of places to stay, very very few hotels and bed and breakfasts were affected 通过 the storm. Unfortunately, the Bayfront Marin is one of those 那 was–我们在旅馆的一楼有大约2英尺的水。我们正在忙着清理和更换家具–and expect to be open on October 24. Our neighbors, the Westcott House, got damage as well (we will 机器人h need to learn 那 foaming and taping technique from David White before the next threatening storm).

对于我们个人而言,更好的消息是,我们的海滩小屋完全不受伤害(嗯,那是’s not exactly true–一扇窗户在我们的橙色房屋上吹了进来,使楼梯受到雨水的破坏,但这是在今天下午修复的;我们输了2局–just 2–在从黄色房屋通往的码头上,那边也固定了。看起来我的杂色冬青树和我的巴豆不喜欢脚湿了,他们可能会放弃战斗)。严重的是,几乎什么都没有。您可以看到沙丘上涌出的水,我们很幸运它停在那里。皇家棕榈和沙丘套房前面的沙丘上确实有一根电话杆…如果水把它推入了我们的建筑物,我怀疑至少在那栋房子上,也许还有其他方面,我会为您提供不同的更新。

We know 那 we’很幸运。风暴造成的最大破坏是对某些社区的破坏,尤其是在隔离岛上。您’ve seen photos of the houses clinging to about 5 feet of sand beneath them. They are on A1A on Vilano, further north from our cottages. Other houses 那 were badly damaged were on Porpoise Point and the areas just on the other side of the Bridge of Lions. Our heart breaks for our friends who live there, and we don’t want to diminish their loss at all as we detail parts of town 那 were luckier.

海湾地区的企业遭受了一些损失–市区和阿纳斯塔西亚岛上。除了我们自己,哈利还受到水的伤害’,蒂尼·马提尼·巴和迈克尔’的品尝室。跨过桥,黑蝇,毒气和霍廷格’s正在清理。 (但是就在旁边的Mellow Mushroom是开放的。它的确确实取决于高度的微小差异)。

我的一切’ve seen from those businesses suggest 他们 are working like dogs, and I have no doubt 那 他们 will be open soon. We’暴风雨过后仅5天–they’已经完成了很多工作。

整个镇上都有一些大树枝,但是城市在清理它们方面做得很好。当我们星期天回来时,马路两边有很多大树枝–城市已经接他们了。现在,有第二堆(略小)的碎片…I’m guessing 那 people have had time to clean their back yards now, and 那’是我在差事上看到的。

清道夫似乎整天都在奔跑–the streets are amazingly clean. I wish 那 他们 had done 那 in Baltimore when I lived there–每年秋天我都会把叶子耙进街上!

So…that’s my rambling, completely personal view of the city. We have guests staying at our beach cottages (lovely guests, I should add, who brought tools and workclothes to help us clean up! I will have to write another blog about all of the people who have touched me and made me tear up the last week). Anyway, 他们 mentioned to me this morning 那 他们 were shocked at how good things look in town. I added my disbelief–if all I saw was the footage on television, I would have assumed 那 圣奥古斯丁 was in far worse shape.

就像我说的,在St. Augustine 脸书 Page或www.staugustine.com上寻找更多正式的企业名单。或者,如果您对某些特定的问题有疑问,请告诉我,如果我可以开车经过Home Depot的其中一次,我会检查一下!
