The Northshore neighborhood. Images taken in the middle of December 2011. Almost all the homes back onto dredged lagoons or artificial dredged channels.

Go ahead...take your shots on Florida suburbia.

Are pics two and three of Clark Griswold's Florida Vacation home?

Some of these homes seem huge in size. is that the case or are most long and skinny?

No gator shots? Nothing like the street cred living wwith garos would give you.

The house in the first image must be over 100-feet wide along its frontage. Probably shallow, too, given it backs onto a bayou. I'll try and get another picture of that one. It's a weird house.

What a sad thread.

This month is the 2nd anniversary of Category 5
Hurricane Michael hitting the Florida Panhandle.

The Hurricane displaced thousands of Lynn Haven
residents and decimated the town.
Video:


One year after Hurricane Michael, the headlines read:
"After Hurricane Michael, Empty Homes in Lynn Haven Are the Norm"
Twelve percent of the population left town, Mayor Margo Anderson said, leaving homes in a frozen state.

“You’ll be amazed at how many houses are sitting not touched since the storm," she said. “There are for sale signs everywhere, and it makes me very sad."
Bay County lost one million trees due to the storm, which the mayor said has led to a myriad of issues, from flooding to a changing ecosystem; fox squirrels, with nowhere to hide, are snatched up by hawks and coyotes prowl, stalking families' pets.

Hurricane Michael was the 3rd strongest hurricane
to ever make landfall in the contiguous U.S.


To add insult to injury, on August 21 of this year (2020):
"Lynn Haven Mayor Margo Anderson faces 63 criminal charges"

LYNN HAVEN, Fla. — The mayor and city attorney of a Florida Panhandle city are the latest to be charged in the theft of $5 million in Hurricane Michael debris removal funds.

Anderson faces charges of conspiring to defraud, several counts of wire fraud and embezzlement of federal funds.
