Isaac swapped tropical storm for hurricane over Key West over night. So, up early this morning to finish the preparations. Outdoor furniture tossed in the pool and covered. Bikes wheeled into the bedroom. (Amazing how much stuff fits in a teensy space.) Shutters are up. Snug inside.

Now I’m off to the airport to pick up a friend from up north. Nothing like “welcome to the first hurricane in forever” as a way to greet a house guest. Little does she know that before she can have her margarita, she has to help me carry stuff in the house.

Key West Covid | Why do two years feel like a lifetime?

In Key West Covid escalated the trends that were already shaping and defining our island.
