The storm finally passed, and thankfully Irma the duck had survived.
"When we went to her in the morning after the hurricane and saw her buried in branches and Spanish moss," Trent said, "our first reaction was just to get the stuff off of her and see if she was alright."
Amazingly, despite losing some fluff to her feathers, the mother duck was in good health. And because of her unwavering commitment to them, all 13 of her eggs had made it through unscathed. With the weather now clear, Irma took the opportunity to stretch her weary legs.
The duck's friends, who'd evidently found safe refuge, even dropped by to check on her.
