Our (Bi)Weekly Recap: 9/3/17 – 9/16/17

Hi y’all! Welp, we couldn’t post our weekly recap last week because….Hurricane Irma. So this week’s recap will cover everything from this past week (which isn’t much because, say it with me…Hurricane Irma) AND the week before, as well.

Once final time, THANK-YOU SO MUCH for your patience as we prepped for, went through, and dealt with the aftermath of Hurricane Irma. Starting this Monday, we should be back to a normal “usually 2 a day” posting schedule.

Hurricane Prep (& Aftermath) In A Theme Park Town (& a visit from Kristen Bell/Frozen’s “Anna!”)

We’re well prepared and confident we’ll do fine from a safety point of view. However we don’t know what will happen in terms of having internet and/or electricity access over the next few days. So we’re going to close up shop here for a little bit, hopefully for as short of a time as possible, and will be back as soon as we can. Thanks for your patience!
