Storm Update

This is all that's on my mind today, so I figure I'll blog about it. Maybe I'll feel better.

Right now it looks like Dennis has come ashore about 30-40 miles from Mom's house. She's inland with some good friends of ours (their kids have almost adopted my Mom as a third grandmother) so she's with people who care about her, and who she cares about.

My biggest worry is that there is so much debris still left over from Ivan that hasn't been picked up yet. The county said that the state was supposed to clear it away, but the state said it was the county's job -- end result was that it didn't get done. Piles and piles of potential projectiles to fly through windows and crash through roofs.

But the house can be fixed. Mom is safe, and that's what matters.

Pray for the people in Fort Walton, Navarre, and points east. They are getting a bit more of this storm than they expected, so they may not be as prepared as they should be.

1 I'm reading this after the fact of Dennis (which was a possible threat where I live as well). Glad to hear things were okay. I'm trusting your mother is okay. Don't these storms keep live exciting? heh.

2 Not a scratch. In fact, she had power on Monday morning, so she got off a lot easier than many folks in Pensacola.
