I am amazed at how much of Frances we got yesterday and last night here in Jacksonville.

We lost power on and off for about 8 hrs, the neighbors tree (it's a small one) is now in my yard..

Few tornados touched down here and there and there is some flooding downtown by the water.  

I hope everyone else is okay.  Check in when you can please?

Power was out here in Tampa from about noon yesterday until 1 a.m. It's been raining most of that time also...

It just doesn't look good for Florida this year. Just saw the update on IVAN, would like to invite all of Florida to relocate to South Texas Coast. Please be careful!

I'm glad all my Floridian friends made it through. Be careful in the aftermath with all those downed wires and flood waters. Be safe. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Great news on Poet DeVine - Talked to her in the car a minute or so ago on the road with her family, and they are about 2 hours away from home.  The power in their area was back on this morning, so that's a big bonus.  She was laughing and that is a good sign.  We had to end our conversation as the weather got really bad but at least they are all safe and going home. I sure hope everyone leaves their shutters up for now.

Now we need to hear from the rest of our poetic friends, and know all is well with them.  Thank goodness for shelters, friends, and family in these times.  In the meantime we can all just hold them in our prayers.

All is well here. Lost some trees and the power has been off for two days but came on this morning around 5 am. Phone lines are still out. They gave us a tentative repair date of 9/19. Just got the hi-speed access back..

Golf courses are closed!!

Am I glad to hear you say 'All is well' dear Balladeer. Francis got me worried and I followed her every step by viewing a live video I found on the internet.
Must have been terrible and thank God it's only trees that fell and that they didn't fall on you!

Come here and let me give you a big Dutch KNUFFEL

Glad to hear you are all okay!

Balladeer, funny, when I heard of the approaching storm, I instantly thought of you not being able to play golf for a while and how grumpy that would make you...hehehe...don't worry, better days are ahead!

Golf courses are open around much of the rest of the nation...take a much-deserved vacation!  Glad to hear that you are ALL ok, and that the most you lost for a while was electricity...

Here with thankfulness and some tears~
Our family members are okay ... alive and we are blessed~

My brother, Tony, lost his home to a huge Oak that crunched it.  So sad, so very, very sad~

We lost power on Saturday evening around 11 p.m. ... just restored phone and electric service.

Friends ... whatever you saw on T.V. ... it's worse than that~
Our community/county/town looks like such huge destruction~
Probably over 2000-3000 trees down ... homes and cars crushed.


Our meadow is forever changed ... majestic oaks are down all along the perimeter of our acreage, but no major damage to our home (some roof shingle damage to the garage/workshop)

I'll be back tomorrow after some much needed rest and when emotions are more in-check~
Keeping the prayers for all of those in the path of this storm ... she was VICIOUS !

Ah Marge I am so sorry about any loss you and your family endured.
I know I would have been scared to death.
You get some much needed rest and thank you for checking in.
We were all so worried about you!

Hurricane Frances is on her way out. I am so relieved. After 48 hours with no power,no shower and no phone, I am very happy to report that we have a huge mess in the yard with tree limbs, but no one was injured. I live in Jacksonville and they say all we got was tropical winds from Frances. How horrible for those further south who got the worst of the storm.
I am so very sorry for those who have suffered far greater loses than my few days of inconvience.

Hugs,
Deb

Marge, I am so very sorry that nature changed your immediate landscape knowing how you love it.  I will hope it returns to you soon in a state that will make you smile again.  So tragic about the trees, and your brother's home, but you all are safe and still have each other.  Our prayers were certainly with all of you down there, and I am so glad you got to shelter and stayed safe.  Personally, never I have I felt so helpless or useless in my entire life. I hope this is over now for you folks, and nothing else comes your way.

Marge, THank you for sharing your experience with us. So sorry about your brother's home and for all those who may have suffered loss. I'm sure you are emotionally drained. I'm glad to know that you are all OK.
Take care and get some rest

Dear Marge:

What major heartache for so many!  Just so thankful that you and your family survived!
What an unbelieavably horrible experience.
Your yard will come back in time and you have a wonderful photo record of what it has been! A verysmall blessing! So good to hear from you!

Love

Very sorry to hear that, Marge. Frances was definitely no lady, for sure. I;m sorry for your son's loss...

Dear Marge

We all here in PiP have been on tenterhooks praying for you and your families safety as well as the rest of Florida's residence.  We have all been anxious to hear from you and I can let out a sigh of relief knowing that you and your family are okay.  I'm sorry to hear about the damage you and your family have incurred, but the main thing is that you still have each other.

Love Isobel ox
