Monday Blues Hit Extra Hard This Week!

Early Monday morning, Anna Maria Island and the surrounding areas were hit by unannounced Tropical Storm Emily.  She came in with a vengenze causing areas to flood, trees became uprooted and even a tornado touched down in NW Bradenton.  Thankfully, we have not heard of anyone getting hurt during the storm but sad to say that some of our local businesses really got the brunt of it.

Our maintenance team has been disbatched to many of our vacation rental properties to make sure all is okay.   The only semi-major report that came in was a tree that broke off and landed on the next door neighbor’s car of one of our rentals.  With a quick response, Team Duncan took care of this small issue.  We were also glad to see that the streets of Anna Maria were not as flooded as they can be.

Nothing like starting the week off with a Tropical Storm!  Hope that this is the only one that we have to deal with  - if we can even be so lucky!

We Survived on Anna Maria Island!

Sorry it has taken me a few days to be in touch.  Myself and the vacation rental team have been busy cleaning up after Tropical Storm Colin.  Thankfully, our office on Pine Ave and over 90 vacation rentals weathered the storm with very few issues.   I was very nervous driving on some of the roads out here as they get flooded quickly, but the MINI Cooper did just fine.  Anna Maria Island has survived many of name storms and Colin is just another example of how “strong” this island is.  The maintenance staff has walked all of our vacation rental properties and cleaned up all of the yards over the last week……wow, they are pooped!  Needless to say, we take care of our properties!

 

Here is to no more storms this season…all of my toes and fingers are crossed!   Hope to see you over the 4th of July!
