Returning to Bermuda after Hurricane Gonzalo and the overwhelming impression is “BROWN” – the trees that were felled by Fay the previous week have died leaving inoperable foliage and any trees that had retained their leaves through the first storm lost the battle with Gonzalo. It looks like winter – only winter here last year didn’t look brown, just slightly less green.
Our landlord did a pretty amazing clear-up job at the tail end of last week and we returned to a fully functioning home. But the drive along our road is sad:

I have been told that palm trees and Bermuda both are resilient and the green will return – the blue sky is definitely back. 🙂
