Preparing for Hurricane Irma: 5 Things We Learned From Matthew

I write this now, not to scare you, but to remind you of the realities that these incredible storms produce. Hurricane Matthew was a category 2, and it rocked our lives last year.

Let us fill up your news feed with just a bit more of hurricane preparedness information… It’s been an exhausting week watching this storm slowly but surely head our way, and we haven’t even evacuated yet. As it closes in on us, it does in fact look like our homes will be on the end of Irma’s wrath. The question is just how bad will her wrath be? I’m no meteorologist, so I can’t help in that department. However, I can restate the obvious and what we learned from having Matthew as our uninvited guest last year.

Sandfly & Its History

Sandfly, Georgia isn’t a tourist destination. It isn’t well-known. It’s seen by many as just the passage way from town to Isle of Hope or Dutch Island. But, we know better. Sandfly may not be famous, but it’s our home. Our community.

Sandfly, Georgia isn’t a tourist destination. It isn’t well-known. It’s seen by many as just the passage way from town to Isle of Hope or Dutch Island. But, we know better.

Sandfly may not be famous, but it’s our home. Our community. It’s special to those who live here. It’s a place for family dinners, a great cup of coffee, a place to grab the latest trendy clothes, home decor and gifts. It’s a hub of thriving local businesses. Need dry cleaning? Check. We have it in Sandfly. Need your nails done? Check. We have it in Sandfly. Looking for antiques? Check. We have it in Sandfly. Need a teeth cleaning? Check. In our little intersection, there are so many places that we sometimes take for granted. (I know when the grocery store closed, this was realized by many!) Continue reading “Sandfly & Its History”

Welcome!

Welcome to our Sandfly Georgia site. Thanks for coming!

There’s a well-known quote – “Growing up Southern is a privilege, really. It’s more than where you’re born, it’s an idea and state of mind that seems imparted at birth. Its more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, football, beer, bourbon and country music. It’s being hospitable, devoted to front porches, magnolias, moon pies and coca-cola, and each other. We don’t become Southern, we’re born that way.” -Anonymous

“We don’t become Southern, we’re born that way.” And here in Sandfly, we’re lucky enough to be Southerners and lowcountry men and women. Sandfly holds a sweet spot in many’s eyes. It’s beautiful. It’s historic. It’s bustling. It’s neighbors to gorgeous Isle of Hope. It’s the place to shop, eat, play, party, grab an adult beverage or a pizza pie with the kids and enjoy life.
