The Fury of Hurricanes

Hurricane Bill looks like it will pass right by us and give Bermuda a swat. This gets me to thinking about Hurricane Hannah last year, and past hurricanes.

On my very first time to the Bahamas in my life, I went to Freeport and used to stay at a property called Silver Sands. I went back there many times. Every single experience there was incredibly enjoyable.

Along came Hurricanes Frances and Jean which wreaked havoc on Grand Bahama. The category 3 and 4 hurricanes stalled over the island for days. The destruction was unbelievable.

Four years after those hurricanes, I went to visit the Silver Sands. It was never rebuilt after the storms. The destruction was total. Here are some pics:
