Thank you for the up-date on Tampa.
Harvey aftereffects are both sad & heartwarming. So many people helping out each other, an army of 'good' neighbors from all over.
Hi Marg.........Tampa got hit fairly hard and as you know had massive power outages, but from what I have been told missed a lot of the grim expectations that were being voiced. Tampa is expected to have pretty much all of her power restored by Sunday.....the utility men and women are working long hard hours and if it is like here there is an army of them out and about so don't be surprised if things go faster then expected. Glad you are helping out in the Houston area, since folk usually just sort of let things slide after a week or so. I know I keep harping on stuff like food and all that, but it boggles my mind to see how many folk go tsk, tsk and wait for someone else to do the hard stuff. These storms are a call to, "all hands on deck". My hats off to you and everyone else who lends a hand............besides the good book tells us to do just that, feed 'em and not to grade 'em. Hope all is well with your sister...........if I can garner any info tomorrow I'll drop you a note asap.
Have you hear how tampa is doing with their power, my sister is there & have not hear from her since the morning after the storm past, she was ok & was going to try & head home later that afternoon to check on things. I'm thinking she must still be out of power.
Glad you are well, I am north of Houston & we have been busy helping out after Harvey. 100 loves of bread is marvelous, good going.
Everything here in SS is coming back to normal for most folk...........lot's of people out in the Forest have no power and some have had some serious damage done to their homes. I was able to round up food, mostly bread and the like for one church and had a shop owner give me about a 100 loaves of fresh baked bread loaves, which I delivered this evening to a soup kitchen in Interlachen. A true blessing so to do since they had none to give out and most groceries around here have none. I told the shop owner who gave me the bread that he would be blessed for that gift. He said he wanted to help and even though his business was without power he was in a the hurt locker. Fifteen minutes later his power was restored and customers started flocking to his store. Coincidence? Mike's shop is back on track, I found a place to buy a tank of gas and got food out to a bunch of folk.............damage, phooey, ......it's just stuff and like most folk I have more than I'll ever need.
For those down in the Florida Keys, the situation is so different..........may they be given comfort, strength and peace.
