First...let me start by thanking everyone for all of their sweet comments and prayers....they worked!!! Not only is my neighbor's dead tree still standing but we managed to get through the storm and keep power the WHOLE time....whoa, I never in my wildest dreams thought that was a possibility. We were VERY fortunate in that we really have nothing to show for a Category 1 hurricane barreling through our area...a few very small branches in our yard and some pine straw. We have no idea how or why we got so lucky but are SO thankful we did as we know millions up and down the east coast did not fare as well. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of those whose lives have been affected by this horrible storm. I can only hope that recovery from this storm will be swift and painless.
My blogging will continue to be sporadic as we decided to head out to Charleston for a shortened vacation with the fam - I hesitate to blog about that because I'm a worrier...BUT don't even think about touching my house....a large burly man and his little friend are watching it. OOHH...and 90% of my neighbors are retired so we've got neighborhood watch like whoa.
