Overnight Waterfront Homes – Thanks to Debby
For many people in Tampa Bay today’s situation is far from being exciting. Tropical storm Debby blasted through our area and not only did some damage but also caused some unpleasant flooding. While some are having fun, kids skim boarding in their driveways, folks riding through streets in canoes and floats, others are fighting water in their living rooms.
A couple days ago a tornado ripped through Pass-A-Grille damaging several homes, turning one on its side and taking a few roofs off. Yet many are enjoying the wind taking advantage of the waves and surfing on body-boards. Some tourists are walking along the beach enjoying what they can while on their paid vacation.
For many a dream of owning a waterfront home in Florida became a reality over the last few days. Not a happy reality for some. After all, this is not the kind of waterfront that will increase your property’s value. On the contrary, we see contracts falling apart and buyers walking away from deals in areas like Shore Acres in St Pete that’s completely under water. However this situation is not new to Shore Acres residents, most have a canoe or kayak for a time just like this.
Here’s a short video from last night’s ride through St Pete Beach and the Pass-A-Grille area.
