Celtics Blog legend FLCeltsFan and her family were hit hard by the Hurricane Michael.  We've never done anything like this before, but let's be CelticsStrong for someone whose dedication has been an amazing and consistent source of entertainment and information for our community.  Her real name is Shirley Coshatt, and in her limited ability to communicate, she mentioned that two trees crushed her roof.  They are unharmed, but have no power or running water. 

Here is a note from Shirley when,  fellow moderator Nickagneta reached out to her:

"Thank you so much for the kind words. Truth is we can use any help we can get.  We have  insurance but also have a large deductible and we have a lot of damage and have lost so much stuff from the roof crashing into the house and all the rain that came with it. 

I'm thankful for an air force unit that helped get the trees out of the roof so we have tarps there to keep mosquitoes and rain out. They finally cleared part of our road so we can get in and out now and were able to get out and get water. But gas is impossible to get right now.

This area was hit so hard so I am thankful we are all alive and are able to fix the house eventually.  I miss Celticsblog and Celtics Strong so much.  I will be thinking of all of you and my Celtics tonight and will check in when I can with my son's phone.  We still have no cell service on ours.  

Thank you again for your thoughts, prayers, and kindness."

As part of the GoFundMe requirements, I have been asked to identify myself as well.  I am Andy Needel, aka Redz, and I am proud to represent our community in support of FlCeltsFan.

Please give what you can.  Thanks.

Update from Shirley today:

Things are looking up. We got power yesterday. Yahoo!! But still only have cold water when the generator is on. We need the well guy to come in to give us water all the time. Will need a contractor to fix the end of the house the tree crushed before we get hot water.

We did finally get on a list for a contractor and a roofer but the list is long so we will be living with holes in the roof for awhile. But we have tarps up that keep most of the rain out.

The Comcast bldg was badly damaged so cable and internet will be a bit slower to come but they are working on it.

Anyway that's an update so slowly things are getting back to normal. Still a long way to go, though. Thanks again for everything. Let me know what else you need me to do. I'm going to try to check in with the forum later with an update for everyone.

Thanks again for everything
Shirley

Latest correspondence from FlCeltsFan:

“I was finally able to get my son's phone to check in again. They are slowly getting roads cleared and we have been able to get out. The whole area is so devastated. There are so many good people here helping the area to recover.

Thank you for thinking of us and for helping us. The insurance adjuster was here today and it looks like we have to pretty much rebuild much of the house. It is a challenge with no electricity and no water and limited phone. And so many people are in the same position contractors are limited.

Please tell redz and everyone on Celtics Strong thank you for me as I don't have time to update the thread also. I saw the score of Tuesday's game and I'm thrilled. Defense is back!!! Will check back again when I can. Thank you again. I am humbled by the love. ”
