Neighboring Gulf towns see different sides of storm’s fury

in

PORT ST. JOE, Fla. (AP) — The piano was washed into a ditch across the street. The dining room table became lodged against a neighbor’s tree. And the storm surge that gutted Rex and Nancy Buzzett’s home of 44 years scattered their other belongings as far as two blocks.
“It busted through the windows, and once it did that, it floats the furniture up,” said Rex Buzzett, a former city commissioner in this Gulf Coast town of 5,000.
“The furniture rolls around in there like being in a washing machine and bangs out everywhere, trying to get out. The results are there behind me.”

phillips_jeanne.jpg

DEAR ABBY: I have been dating the most amazing man for the past 11 months. As we approach the one-year anniversary of the day we met, this “perfect” man is showing some not-so-perfect traits. I was unlucky in love for many years until he swept me off my feet. We have both become extremely close with each other’s respective friends and family.
