Hi Everybody~

Debi, Mike's wife, just called me to tell me that she had heard from Mike
this afternoon about 1:00 P.M. (our time) (probably 2:00 P.M. Belize
time). He was calling from the BTL in San Pedro and they had a very good
connection, Debi said. Mike had a smooth trip down there, and was able
to take a water taxi from Fido's to Doug and Ali's. They had NO idea
that he was coming, as NO communications had reached them, but they were
VERY glad to see him.

Doug has called out Graniel to give bids on what it will cost to fix Mc
Clean's home, Doug and Ali's home, and our home next door to theirs.
Graniel will be coming tomorrow to figure out what the costs will be.
Mike told Debi that it is necessary to get 2 estimates from repair
people, like Graniel. Then the insurance adjustor will come out.

Doug and Ali are both fine, Mike said, but the night that the hurricane
was so bad, they didn't think that their home was going to make it, so
they headed for Mc Lean's home next door. To get there, they related
wading through mid-thigh water, as water was running from one side of the
island to the other.

Doug is trying to fix his cell phone, and said that he should have it
working by the end of this week. Doug also has a generator, and has been
able to use it.

Do you know Gill and Dora that have the Dive Shop in San Pedro. Well,
Mike said that both of his boats sunk, but that he was able to get them
back up somehow. Doug also told Mike that the roof had blown off of Gill
and Dora's home, but that no one was hurt, and that he already had the
roof fixed.

The Palapa Bar is in tact- - -just the thatched roof blew away, and Doug
thinks that it won't be too long before they'll be serving meals again.

There is NO ROAD and NO FERRY to San Pedro. Doug said that the ferry
blew away and is probably out at Terniff Reef.

We were happy to hear that Franco and Francine, who have 7 children, and
Bernaby and Betty who have 2 small children, both had their wooden homes
still standing, and came through the storm just fine. Bernaby and Betty
live just one lot away from the cut, Rio de Boca, and Franco and Francine
are only a block farther away.

Our home, next to Mc Cleans, had the roof of the bodega blown off, and
since it was attached to the kitchen, there was a leak behind our
refrigerator, Mike said, but also said that he would be able to probably
fix it himself.

Mary Hawthorne was happy to hear from Mike, since most all the homes she
rents out as vacation rentals sustained some kind of damage, and she
needs to contact all these people, and see how they will mitigate their
damages, probably before peak season, I imagine. She was happy that Mike
was there taking care of our place, and that there would be one less
person she would have to contact.

Guess things are REALLY looking up, and progress is being made every day
according to the news I'm receiving via Marty on the Belize Bulletin

Signing off for this time.

Very Sincerely, Lorraine Sherman (Mike's Mom)
