My family and I are all safe. Our house flooded and is uninhabitable so we will have to relocate for a few months. I hope to return to at least some blogging by next week, God willing.
I cannot reply to emails right now. I apologize to you all.
Thank you all for your prayers and support!
Thanks for letting us know you and family are safe. Thank God. Be well and more prayers sent.
Good news you are all ok,your family come first,take care.
Let nothing upset you
Let nothing frighten you
Everything is changing
God alone is changeless
Patience attains the goal
Who has God has everything
God alone fills every need.
I recently found this quote from the 16th century carmelite nun St Teresa of Avila. It is beautiful is it not? It speaks to me.
Thanks for the wonderful poem/prayer, Parrhesiastes.
Contained within it is priceless wisdom for all.
Best to you and the family, Andrei.
I have experienced firsthand extreme weather conditions here in Australia
earlier this year and time will see you overcome your present conditions.
Interestingly, when these events occur, we see the best come out in humanity.
May the Blessings be.
Prayers for you and your family.
Bless you Andrei You are in my prayers.
Godspeed to you and yours.
Thanks for the update message. I understood from it that your house hasn’t been flattened / blown away, but has suffered a lot because of flooding. Happily you and your beloved ones are alive. God bless.
Dear Andrei, my Allah, the Almighty, keep and protect you and your family.
Is it a sign to clear out for good? Is the question you and yours might be asking yourselves!
My condolences for what has happened to you. However, everything is recoverable, the most important you and your family are safe. And today, in spite of everything, is a great day – the end of a long journey – Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporozhye returned to the motherland. Finally!!
Hugs from Poland.
Very unfortunate that you’ve experienced this personal tragedy at this historic moment in time that prevents you from participating in it. I’m sure I’m not the only one who is saddened by the loss of your voice. Best wishes for you and family on your transition.
You and yours will be in my prayers. It’s strange to see that hurricanes – which Brazilians basically only see on TV – hit real people, even more so at a time when we are almost getting rid of our own curse, Bolsonaro. May our Lord Jesus Christ protect and bless you.
I hope the best for you, your friends and family around. Good wishes for you all.
My profound sorrow for all of you who have lost your homes.
The words given to St. Julian of Norwich:
“I may make all things well, and I shall make all things well, and I will make all things well, and you will see yourself that every kind of thing will be well”.
Hi Saker – thanks for updating us. All the best friend.
Thanks for letting us know, Andrei. The news from the US had us quite concerned, thinking about you and your family. Glad to read you’re all safe. Wishing you all the best. Take care.
Hopefully you have somewhere to go for a few months. If not, hit me up. I have family in north Florida. A refuge for a couple of weeks, they couldn’t do months. It’s out in the country and there are some of the cheapest rents around. I’ll talk to them now and make sure there aren’t other relatives coming. I do know they’d love the novelty.
Андрей, с большим вниманием читаю Ваш блог, крайне интересный анализ. Это здорово, что Вы позаботились о своей семье и она находится в безопасности. Не забывайте, что на все воля Божия, Господь Вас не оставит.
My family also send our prayers to The Saker and his family. But, I truly believe that, if we are brothers and sisters to The Saker, the best thing that we can do for him NOW (sorry for the critical scream) is to donate
whatever money you can afford. I have personally been a free loader who has read his blog for free. I had
convinced myself that I simply could not afford it. But, in this case, it is clear that his plight is so much greater
than mine. I will be sending him a contribution that I can afford. He needs purchasing power right now, and I hope to maybe help out a little.
Thanks be to God you are all safe. Once again sorry to hear about your home. God willing the rebuilding can begin soon and things will return to normal sooner rather than later.
Thanks for leting us know. Be safe.
Sorry for your loss Andrei. Kinda hard to fight the ocean with sandbags when she hits you with 10ft of water.
We are very sorry to here of the damage to your home.
Please keep in mind that in the US, “Insurance” is one of the mainstays of the US Financial World.
Dr. Hudson told us about the US “Fire Sector” that makes up the US Financial House:
F: finance (credit cards, auto loans, home mortgages, etc)
I: INSURANCE – a monolithic Power House
RE: Real Estate
Please consider whether it would be cheaper to pay for “out-of-pocket” expenses to have the remodeling done by independent experts because if you rely on your Insurance Company – afterwards, they are going to charge you far more than in the past.
Same thing happened to our home. We chose to have people come in and take care of the home damage, and the insurance company was NOT involved. They are vultures.
I went through more hurricanes than I can remember during the twenty years I lived in Southwest Florida. Lived in Lee and Charlotte county, the worse was Charley in 2004, category 4 made a direct impact on my town, tore it up bad. Florida had four hurricanes in just six weeks that year. But all previous hurricanes were mostly wind damage, while Ian was water surge. Still have many friends in the area, and have tried to call them, but the phone service is down. Don’t even know if they all survived. Glad to know Andrei and his family is well. This storm was as bad as the one that hit the Miami area in the 1990’s. Catastrophic. Some insurance companies will be insolvent after this, and I suspect many will no longer write policies in Florida anymore. Allot of people have moved to Florida since 2004, especially Lee county, there wasn’t much to Fort Myers when I moved there in 1987. The economy had been booming for as long as I can remember, but I don’t know after this.
I have been to Cuba, with my wife and young family, but never to Florida, or anywhere in the USA.
You will be O.K.
I did buy your book – The Essential Saker
My Family have also survived a Hurricane in The North Atlantic Ocean, in My Son’s Sailboat.
We sheltered against the storm in The Scilly Islands. I had brought along some fishing gear. We survived Nana and Grandad and two young Grand Children, mainly by catching Pollock, which tastes better than Cod when you are hungry
We are now awaiting the Birth of our Third Grandchild – anytime now
I am still awake, hoping and praying, that she gets born O.K.
I am with her
She will be loved to bits by her young brothers, and all our family
I can’t ask for more than that.
another child for the crew
It is good to know that you and yours are all safe, despite you loss of home and property. May God in His mercy keep y’all as you endure and overcome. You mean a lot to those of us who frequent these cyber climes.
In the meantime, Putin speaks on the four Oblasts who voted to join Russian Federation before signing ceremony.
