    Jacki, thank you for the update. Our local news mentioned Andrea's town got hit hard. As I understand it, the eye of the storm went right over her town. Hope she didn't have a lot of damage. Most importantly she is safe. Now, I wonder how Brady Bear is doing? They all must be exhausted!

    The storm is finally over. Those winds scared the $hit out of me.
    Lots of trees down here... fence is all gone, lots of shingles to roof, and like Andrea lots of yard work. My husband thinks he can do it all... but we won't let him over do it.
    Work was so exhausting. On my way to work I was at a red light and saw 4 homeless people.. yes gave them my goody bag (kyss bag too) full of snacks personal hygiene items.. but all those stuff can be replace.
    They did give us something to eat.. but it wasn't fit for humans.. lol.. Driving home I got pulled over 2x's due to curfew. The police was so nice asked where I worked and on officer grandfather resides there... (his grandfather calls me "pudding tang" have no idea what that means..
    Again thank you everyone for your caring..
    We do have power.. our house, food, health and etc. so we are "BLESSED" and GOD is GREAT !!!
    Luv ya all to the moon. And please remember those from 9/11
