Imagine . . . you’ve lost all but one room of your home.
The power has been out for three weeks, so you’ve been forced to shower and cook outside in 100°F weather with endless rain. Cell service is close to impossible. You can forget about internet.
What’s more, you’re a farmer. Your acres are decimated. You’ve lost everything but your purple top turnips in the saturated soil.
This is the reality for Ronnie and Scott Barnes of Happy Homestead Farm in Fountain, Florida. They have to be prepared for any little “blip on the radar” to become a Category 4 storm, like Hurricane Michael did in early October.
They could lose their entire farm at any moment.
