Here’s your Nothing to Do Orlando!
The beginning of our week has reconfigured the flow of the end of our week; Events have been canceled, rescheduled, or postponed until further notice and some of us may feel a little behind now.
With Hurricane Irma taking power from most of the communities throughout Orlando, many establishments had to make tough calls when throwing out hundreds of dollars’ worth of product and families were and still are without power and internet limiting their resources.
We continue to have an impact 5 days post storm with limited power, trees on power lines, broken windows, impacted roofs, missing shingles and debris on nearly every street you turn to and we can’t help to have additional sorrow for those affected near the Southern and Western coast of the sunshine state. Thankfully with FEMA driving into action to help the communities that were flooded by much stronger winds and storm surge, the families in all affected areas will soon have their relief.
For those who say There’s Nothing to Do in Orlando, you may be right this weekend due to the fact that many establishments and families are still sluggish from having to gather their marbles and protect themselves and their families first.
So.. to be the great city/community we are we’re just going to find something to do and my suggestion here is to shine some light and help your neighbors and communities by re-beautifying in anyway you can.
It all starts by assisting where possible; I have my bags, gloves, closed toe shoes, and extra water bottles in my mini cooler ready to go. I made sure my neighbors were clear on Tuesday, cleared my yard up on Wednesday and now It’s time to visit my next-door communities; All in time “The City Beautiful” will be even stronger!
For the Central Florida area many communities thrive off of the locally owned small businesses, many shop owners had to face days without power, unable to Re-open or properly provide service due to troubles at home or office. This in turn affecting their income and putting additional strain on their minds.
Show your support this weekend to your neighbors and small business owners and let us know who is open and stronger than before in your community!
