Miracle on 28th Street

Early this Wednesday morning my friend, neighbor and long-time south Cocoa Beach resident, Roy Scafidi awoke to a house full of smoke and furniture in flames. He, his wife and two teenage daughters escaped moments before the house was completely engulfed in flames. The good news is they are all alive and uninjured. The bad news is they lost everything. If you'd like to express support, you can email Roy at or if you'd like to offer assistance it will surely be appreciated. Gift cards are a good way to help if you are so inclined as they must now begin the process of replacing everything from flip flops to school books. Roy's mailing address is:

I don't know who took the shots above. They were sent to me and were apparently shot from Waters Edge condos to the south. If they are your photos, let me know if you have a problem with me using them and I'll remove them or, if you prefer, I'll give you credit.
