Orange Beach, Alabama

Orange Beach, Alabama the day Hurricane Irma ravaged Florida.

The day Hurricane Irma ravaged Florida, I was at Orange Beach, Alabama – just a couple miles from Florida’s westernmost border in the panhandle. The circular bands of clouds give only the barest hint of the massive scale of the storm. Winds were relatively calm in Alabama and nary a drop of rain fell all day.

It was a mostly overcast, but delightful day in the park.
