Clearing the Palms


Palm Debris in a Truck

November 15, 2022

Last week's hurricane prompted the management company to get our palm trees trimmed of excess fonds and the bumper crop of nearly mature coconuts.

It was too little, too late. 

Only a few of the palms were able to be trimmed in advance of the storm and the rest were finished yesterday. 

Fortunately, there was no damage caused by falling palm debris or coconuts from the storm as the worst of it missed spurt community. 

I was amazed at the amount of trimming the palms required. In the image, the trimmed palms are in the background and some of the debris is in the truck. I know that at least four truckloads were removed and probably more from the community. It was a mess for most of the day with large piles of fonds and coconuts lying everywhere. It is a huge project especially since our palms are very tall. 

Sunset on the Intracoastal Waterway

To celebrate the end of the day, Chris and I went to our favorite beach. There we found that the bottom of the stairs across the dunes had been washed out and so we found a spot on the Intracoastal Waterway to watch the sunset.

It was a stunning sunset. 

I had planned to get up during the middle of the night to see the Artemis 1 launch, but in checking the weather before bed I was concerned about cloud cover and so I slept through the successful launch. And that mission is underway.
