Somers showing us how she would hide if there was a storm and above right, getting everything back into shape again to an idyllic island in the middle of the Atlantic. We have electricity back on within 36 hours of Gonzalo and Fay, a testimony to the reslience of Bermuda and its people and how everyone pulls together to get through this. Quite remarkable. Two hurricanes in less than a week and on both occasions within two days shops and schools will be open, ferries and buses running, businesses open. The worst damage was marine devastation with boats overturned, sunk or run aground in this Category 3 hurricane
