Those storms have a way of even making their way up to Kansas...they just dry out and become tornados.  In BP [Before Passions] time, and one got the news on the old-fashioned tube - we watched, but remained calm, generally, unless we had family in "the immediate" area.

Today, with our realm continually closing in with our electronic gidgets and gadgets, and the friends we make AP [After Passions], I have a stronger sense of concern for all.  These are no longer just "someone else's" tragedies. They've become far more personal.

Stay safe, all.

Alicat, sorry for the frustration.

There are just a lot of people and property in danger. We, here in NW Florida, cannot take another hurricane so soon. Some people around here still have their blue roofs from Ivan last year.

Home owners insurance agencies have dropped people like hot potatoes.

I don't mean to complain. I could move, and probably will, but not because of the hurricanes. It's just frustrating because most people don't really truly know what it's like.

And I could've kissed every Mississippian lineman (and there were plenty) for helping me to retain my "power".

Thanks to you all, for caring and sharing, and I'll be back soon.

Right now I just want to hug all my Brit friends...sweating, now, seems so not important.

(I wasn't prepared for this storm actually, and had no idea of weather reports, much less world events until forty five minutes ago.)

Thanks twist, for posting for me (AND the batteries, AND the oil lamp AND the meatloaf AND the love) while I guarded the place 'gainst the looters. grin?

(I know, I know, we have to quit inviting em. )

hugs to all,

I'll be around,

and hey? Ali-bro? thank you. *hugs

(dix? The man knows his storms, especially firestorms...)

Sharon? I'm holding my breath with you. (hugs)

let me go catch the news.

and thank you all

breathing a sigh of relief for you, sister Serenity
and still waiting
to hear from all the other friends in the pathway of nature's fury

Karen, glad to see you here again, though it may only be for a couple more days

I think all of us along the coast are gonna be out of power again come Sunday

I know what you mean about kissing the power company workers...it was an awesome thing to see so many trucks from other states here when Ivan hit. I was so grateful to get my power back on.

One good thing...the FEMA guys are all still here along with all the roofers and tree cutters from Texas

A call from the two bookends is coming on Saturday, you home?  Hey Twist, if you are there would be good to hear if you speak N'Arlins at all   Glad to hear you are okay, but we want to hear it from the horse's mouth.

I too am catching up on news, and sometimes you really wonder if its worth it.   I belong on the other side of the glass.
