Hurricane Irma–Florida Couple Evacuate to Gloucester


This couple from Apopka, FL, when it was recommended to evacuate because of Hurricane Irma, they decided to come all the way to Gloucester.  They mentioned, that trying to find a generator was impossible, it seems that most generators have been shipped to Huston Texas.  They hope when they return there is minimal damage.  Best of luck to all that are effected by these hurricanes.

by Bobbi M. Thiessen

After a storm hits his home in the harbor, Chip the hermit crab is washed away to the sea and separated from his family. Once the storm passes, he begins his journey home and meets lots of interesting friends along the way.

Fun, adventurous, and educational, The Homeless Crab features great characters that find they all have something in common: pollution in the ocean is affecting their lives. With her story, author Bobbi M. Thiessen hopes to raise awareness to the problem of pollution and how it negatively affects ocean life. “
