SANIBEL, Fla.- For many hotels and resorts on Sanibel, it was business as usual Sunday night. Some stayed opened for tourists, and those visitors didn't let the wind and rain ruin their trips.
Even those who waited until the last minute were able to get supplies. Residents on this island describe themselves as fiesty, not reckless and not afraid of Isaac.
While LCEC crews sat prepared to go to work on any line damage Isaac may have caused, and while some store owners and hotels decided to close, there were the fearless who actually drove to our area to see a hurricane close up. While some shops were closed, there were those who were willing to stay open no matter what.
Don Williams works at the Tween Waters Inn. He says today was pretty much business as usual.
"We've kept in touch with them. We've let them know what is going on. We don't want them to be caught off guard. Everyone that is there now is pretty content," Williams said.
Some said they hope Monday won't bring anymore bad news from Isaac. They are simply waiting for things to get back to normal.
