Mistress Erika Marked SAFE from Hurricane Ian!
You may know that I live in Florida and got hit BAD with Ian! Flooded streets for 5 days, without power for 9 days but still don’t have internet or phone.
I hope I get it back this weekend and will be around for your sexy calls next week. If I don’t have internet back by Monday I’ll be looking into home wifi options (your suggestions welcome)
I miss you and can’t wait to get back! Hope to have some sexy fun then!
I have power and internet and am back on those phones for some kinky fun! Please don’t hesitate to reach out, I’m OK! Many have offered support and help, thank you! If you do want to help, what I need most from you right now is YOU, and the distraction you provide with your sessions!
I’ve been asked a lot about my experience and how I’m doing so to save some time I’ll update you here. This way we can get to the FUN sooner rather than later, in session! 😘
Some of you may know I was scheduled to have a vacation (Cruise) the first week of October, but Ian had other ideas. I had to cancel but will be rebooking ASAP.
Wednesday the 28th I lost internet early, then spent the rest of the morning finishing putting up storm shutters, and putting things inside. Tied down various things in my yard (shed, water equipment) and soon the winds did blow! The power went out a few hours later.
From what I understand I was in Ian’s eyewall (Not the eye= calm the wall with the biggest winds) for many hours, the winds and rain pelted my little home with little regard! Imagine yourself in your home, the walls rumbling as a freight train rolls on by. It is the winds rumbling like a train barreling down on you, the rumble increases then might ebb briefly, over and over and over. For Hours. I’ve been through a hurricane (or two) before and this was a different experience just based on the duration and the sound of that “train” alone.
So there I was inside my cave. Hearing large cracks and bumps just on the other side of your wall. For those not familiar with storm shutters, mine are made of steel and they close up my house like a cave, I can’t see out. After 11 hours of dangerous conditions, the winds calmed down to just under hurricane strength, with hurricane gusts, dare I look out? I Dare!
I went out into the cold windy night (about midnight), and there was the most terrifying thing of all. My home (On a hill) is surrounded by water, 5 feet deep! My house was ok for the time, but to help you fully understand I am in a 500-year flood plain. Meaning only a 500-year storm or .2 percent chance that my road will flood with any strong storm, actually happened. Being in a flood before (different home) I knew it was not only the water I see, but the water RISING from the water table UP to under my home that could still happen as the flood waters might rise. However knowing the worse of the storm was over, and praying that the water didn’t rise anymore I hoped I wouldn’t be flooded. I didn’t sleep well, but fell into bed, both mentally and physically exhausted and got a bit of rest.
The Next Morning
Thursday, all I could hear were the sounds of helicopters and emergency sirens ringing in my ears with horrifying regularity, and for the next few days. I know (listening in on the emergency radio) that the helicopters were guiding ground forces to stranded people. Even evacuating more emergent cases as needed to local hospitals. Some were on their roofs, holding on to their loved ones. The radio reports pleaded with people not to attempt their own escape, people are trying and finding themselves in more dangerous situations in their vehicles than staying put. I knew their lives, as they knew them, were destroyed. just a few miles from me. I sat in my dry home, the whirling of the fan cooling me, and I knew I was lucky. I’m thankful.
As people were rescued the activity with emergency vehicles and helicopters subsided after a few days, leaving an eerie silence. Birds, frogs cicada’s who usually lay down the white noise for Florida life couldn’t be heard. Then there was the silence and extreme darkness each night.
During the day I’d see kayakers or those with tall trucks or even some walking bare-legged through the flooded streets, braving the bacteria-laden flood waters. People stop what they were doing or pop out of their homes, to say hello. Some offered information about the world “out there” and some offered assistance, do you need water? Two young guys, in their early ’20s in a HUGE tall truck (can you say 100 grand worth of truck?) came down from another county offering supplies of water, food, dog food, toothpaste, and other comforts. I told them I just need gas, as my plan to siphon gas from my vehicle was a bust (anti-siphoning technology). They only had diesel and promised to be back the next day with gas for me. Fortunately, a friend stopped by with a gallon, and I texted the big truck fellas to focus on others, that I am fine.
The water subsided after 5 days, and I was able to “get out”.
Getting Out After The Flood
But getting “out” wasn’t all that it is cracked up to be. Inching along some (still) water-covered roads, seeing the devastation was equally distressing. Huge oaks uprooted, on people’s houses. Tall pine trees snapped in half from the 150mph winds. I don’t think there was any privacy fence, wooden or vinyl that escaped unscathed, their carcasses strewn across property lines. Roads are washed out and a ten-minute trip to the (thankfully, open and supplied gas station) took 30 minutes. Motorhomes parked in the driveway now toppled over. I see evidence one “unbelievable” example of Ian’s destruction, after another. Metal flat roofs peeled back like a sardine can, plywood exposed roofs, and even some homes with roofs collapsed. Pool cages are partially or totally destroyed.
The trees which withstood the winds stood bare or mostly bare. In Florida, we are used to having many trees remain green all year. But now the green scape looked more like Jersey in the winter. The trees with a leaf or none stood naked as their bare branches rose up and leaned towards the south/southwest bent from Ian’s breath. The thick full tropical underbrush is gone or flattened. This underbrush on vacant lots typically makes seeing from one suburban street to the other impossible is now thinned out. You can now see “through” the green scape to the other street.
Light At The End Of The Tunnel
Through it all, thank goodness, my house remained dry. But after the threat of flooding subsided, I had more days without power, cell phones didn’t work or worked poorly, and many towers were wiped out. I hear Elon helped with Starlink satellites to bring us some service! Finally, my internet came on at day 13!
I am generally a very appreciative and grateful person. But experiences like this really hammer home that gratefulness for the little things we take for granted. Having power, and the ability to take a hot shower was amazing! Being able to get cold ice for my drink, flipping a switch fo illuminate the room.
When I was without internet. I tried tethering my phone to my computer to use its internet connection, but do you remember to dial up? I think it was worse than that! LOL, Many sites would time out. I could take calls on my cell, but couldn’t use the Internet and I was going to attempt to take calls, come hell or high water (Isn’t it ironic, don’t cha think) this week. Thankfully that changed as well.
I have minor damage and had two trees taken out (didn’t hit the house) became better friends with most neighbors and was the only one of three around me with a generator so I made coffee for everyone each morning. I was blessed in many ways through this disaster. Friends and neighbors helping, as well as Mother Nature turned the weather nicer for the power outage. Lows in the 60s high in the low 80’s no humidity, certainly could have been worse if the temps were higher!
The only thing to do now keep moving forward. Although I have some expenses related to the storm, it’s not enough to claim on insurance so I’ll be paying out of pocket so this means I need to get my sweet tukus back on these phones!
Thank you my darlings! Back to our regularly scheduled kinky play! I’ll be posting a few blogs coming up this month I hope you enjoy them!
Until we chat: 💋
Your storm blown Mistress Erika
Thank you for the update. Glad you’re safe, your house came through mostly unscathed. I can only image how long before the area is back to any amount of normal.
I hope things are smooth for you from here on, glad you had neighbors and locals around for help, and glad you were there for them.
Community is important.
Thank you WS~ 😘😘🥰🥰
It’s been just over a year since a tornado came through about 1/2 mile from my house. Some people are still out of there homes, damage is still visible. I can only image the increase in scale in Florida.
Glad you were prepared. Will keep thinking about you and your area.
😘Thank you WS, Mother Nature is not a force to thumb your nose at, that’s for sure!
Every now and then, I go camping for a week or so. No power, no air conditioning, no fridge with food on hand… it’s a wonderful escape from the modern world, and I really enjoy it.
The idea of effectively ‘camping’ in my house, with no set end in sight, surrounded by destruction and people suffering? Definitely not a welcome break from real life!!!
I’m so glad you’re ok, and didn’t suffer anything worse than some discomfort and landscaping issues.
Would it be ok to make a donation to the food bank for Florida in your name?
Thanks for stopping by Ms Harper! I totally agree! I love camping too, but this…… nope nope nope!
I would be so honored and pleased if you did make that donation! Thank you!
Guys, how amazing is Harper and all the ladies I get to play with?
Wow, you are one amazing woman.You were indefatigable in your determination. That is a long time to be in such stressful conditions. Coffee is a magic elixir. Way to help your neighbors out.
Yeah, You are safe and sane a true treasure of a human being.
Your enthusiasm, intelligence,zest for life etc is a gift that so many of us are so fortunate to be able to continue to share with you.
Thank you Gigi! I appreciate you taking the time to leave these lovely words for me! 😘Also thank you for the vocab lesson, Indefatigable, will now be in my bag of tricks, but that switch to the G might mess me up, I’ll have to practice it …. In De Fatigaaaable in de fat I GA ble………. lol
Ms. Erika, I am so glad that you are safe and sound and are back at it at LDW. To say we missed you gracing the pages of EE is an understatement. To say that we weren’t worried about you, as well as the other ladies of LDW is also an understatement.
I am glad you were as prepared as you were to be able to ride out such a hellish natural disaster named Ian.
We all take way too much for granted like you said, but it is so reassuring that with all the bad news that is reported on a daily basis, there are times like these, when we see the best of humanity coming out to assist each other in such tribal basic needs as a hot cup of coffee.
Thank you WD for keeping us in your thoughts! I’m glad to be back too! Thank you for stopping by!
Oh dear Mistress Erika, you and all of Our Florida ladies have been on My heart since this all began, right along with other friends I know and love from outside the phone fun. I am so grateful that all of you came out mostly unscathed, and to see you back here to play again!
Mistress Harper said it best, so I’ll just add, thank you for sharing your experience. Sounds like you got to experience the wrath of nature and the kindness of human beings all in one fell swoop.
Hi Ms Rachel!
Thank you so much for keeping us in your thoughts! I don’t usually write about macabre events, well unless it’s CBT 😱🤭😂but this experience really hit home, and was one of those things which make you appreciate and grateful for the small things in life. (Hear that tiny dude? I appreciate EVEN your tiny D). I also know many are concerned and want to hear about it sooooooo here ya go!
Thanks for being so awesome Ms R!
Hi Goddess Erika.🧎♂️🧎♂️🧎♂️🧎♂️ I am so glad you are safe and back on the phones again. I was very worried about you once i heard where Ian was headed more towards SW Florida. So sorry that you were in Ian’s eyewall. The size of the storm made Ian even worse. i couldn’t handle hurricanes because sometimes we get strong storms that do damage but that is only with 70 MPH winds.
Hi slave, thank you for your concern! Feels so good to know I have you and others out there pulling for me! 😘
It is unimaginable, the damage this catastrophic event caused to millions. Lives lost, lives forever changed by this force of nature.
As I mentioned to you for two days I sat enrapt, viewing the carnage and horror that befell these poor souls.
I cannot even fathom how one must now rebuild their entire lives. The shock one must experience as they gaze upon a wasteland that was once their world.
My heart is broken for the people of Florida…(and elsewhere) that have experienced the wrath of Ian.
Mistress Erika I am relieved beyond words that you are safe and I couldn’t bear the thought of what you must have been going through.
We have just celebrated our Thanksgiving this past weekend and I am truly thankful for your safety. When I heard from you yesterday I could finally exhale!
You truly are Wonder Woman.
I hear you peg! I’ve felt similarly these past weeks “the shock” the heartbreaking. I faired very well in comparison, and my heart goes out to those who have had a catastrophic loss.
I am truly blessed!
Happy Thanks Giving! I was watching something last night and it mentioned Canada’s TG was Monday! 🦃
Glad you’re ok . Worst hurricane I have been through. Hurricanes aren’t for sissies. 5 days without power lots of tree debris and many signs broken even the Hooters billboard got totally smashed.
Thanks AST, glad you are ok as well!
The damage at one of the kinky beaches I go wasn’t at all visible at the shore line and dunes I was totally surprised . But in the woods where the bois play . Quite a few big trees came down . The mangroves held up well . Thursday or maybe and Friday I am going to the more fun open beach. I hope to have some sort of exciting adventure. Even just walking the beach in women’s thong panties is exciting. I suppose the damage to that beach will be worse because it is 20 miles south. Your area got hit with more force than here.
When your town recovers. Someone will open up a glory hole and call it Ian’s. Advertising could say
“Have you ever been blown this hard”
Guaranteed to get you wet.
I am north of you . Yes 5 days no power. Still cleaning up. I was really quite Surprised our beaches weren’t damaged much worse. But that nasty red tide has reared it’s ugly head 7 dead fish on beach Sunday soy beach fun is over for who knows how long. How is beach by you ?
LOL OMG AST, brilliant idea!
