I saw that new one starting up Helen...let's hope it decides to peter out before it gets anywhere close to our Floridians.

I got nothing.  

A bit of rain and that is it.

Thanks for checking in, folks... you've definitely been in my thoughts and prayers.

And Helen... stay safe as you help others... hope you get some rest soon!

WHEW !!!! JUST GOT OUR POWER BACK UP !!

The good news is that the ones I love are all safe, as are Bill and I~

Bill and I, with my brother staying with us, lost power at the peak of the hurricane in our area at 10 p.m. Friday evening.
A twister layed down some old majestic Oaks just down the street from us, taking out a major power line.  Then just around the other corner another major line down when trees toppled.

Our actual damage here at our home was minimal ... not counting the loss of food items from the extended power outage.

My daughter, Tracie, wasn't as fortunate, as a tree fell on her car causing extensive damage ... but ... SHE IS SAFE~  THAT is what counts~

Son Robert and wife Dana in Tampa .... just fine and dandy, as the storm really didn't touch them.

Son David and wife Kim and darling grandgirls,Delaney and Landry, went through a rough part of the storm ... large tree down on their Volleyball Court .... some minor shingle damage .... but ... THEY ARE SAFE~
They are still without power at their home, so have taken retreat at Kim's parents home~

Son Steven and wife got some rough blow with a tornado ... but besides the tree damage and some minor pool damage ... they are also ALL FINE !!!

My step-father and step-mother and all my 'other' family are just fine ... some of them still 'powerless' ... but safe~

Thank you ALL for keeping us in prayerful thought .... we thank HIM for the blessings of keeping us safe~

Our prayers are with the families that lost loved ones in this vicious storm ... also praying that another does not hit us~

Marge, thank you so much for checking in and letting us know that yes, indeed, all of the important matters in your life are indeed safe!  Nature has a way of cleaning up her home...but I'm glad you all avoided her vacuum!

Marge, I have been worrying about you and the others I know in Florida. I am so glad you and your family are all safe. And, I hope that the others there in Florida from Pip are safe as well.

Glad to see the check-ins....still wondering about a few others.  My brother and his wife had a tree down and lost windows.  But they're okay.  Thank goodness.

Port Charlotte friends rode out Charley and are now in a shelter.

Bad news

They lost everything.
