Tropical Storm Warning

The Mid-Atlantic/ Northeast Coast is getting ready for Hurricane Irene.  Please pray that she turns and heads out to sea or that the damage and death is minimal to none.  

We've stocked up on water and flashlights, checked the trees in the yard for instability and bad limbs, and will fill up the truck with gas tomorrow evening.  We're as prepared as we can be, minus filling the bathtubs with water for flushing when the power goes out.  Now we wait and pray.

Hurricanes are a kick in the pants.  There is a thrill to the preparation and the tracking- and then there is awe at the photos- and then there is a realization that you are about to eat that storm...gulp!

We made it just fine. Now Lee is soaking us to the skin and making us all pruney. Hope the Tropical Depression in the Gulf goes to Texas!
