Key Largo, part of a string of islands called the Florida Keys off the shore of the state, dealt with storm surges and flooding just recently in light of Hurricane Irma. Many residents woke up to see, baffled, that the entire bay was just swept away, such was the strength of the recent wind and rains.
M.J., who lives at the end of Lobster Lane, found a ring lying in the street the next day. There had been a 7 to 8-foot surge that came and went, moving piles of things in its wake.
So M.J. picked up the ring and noticed there were initials carved into it, and they matched M.J.’s neighbor’s initials.
M.J. gave him a call about the funny coincidence, because their neighbor had lost their own wedding ring eight years ago, and he’d just recently evacuated to Atlanta so he was not around.
“What are the chances?” M.J. shared on Facebook. Turns out, it was his neighbor’s ring after all, just “sitting right in the broad daylight, still on his property.”
“Amazing. Had to share.”
