Hurricane
« on: September 15, 2004, 12:04:23 AM »

Hey everyone - keep Carolyn and me in your thoughts - we live in Alabama, and hurricane Ivan is expected to hit the state pretty hard tomorrow night.  The predicitons are pretty bad.

I have friends in New Orleans... I'm so sorry about the Hurricane! I'll be thinking of you all of today, and if I have time tonight, I'll pray.

Oh, man, that sucks, Heather. Try and keep safe, and get in touch when you can so we know you're all right.

Makes me glad I live in the west. All we have to worry about are earthquakes. :laugh:

I have family down in Florida. My aunt narrowly missed Charley and that other one which I can't recall right now.

Jeanne might get bad, too.

You're all in my prayers, guys. The Lord hears all.

We're under a tornado watch right now. Very amusing. I'm not scared of tornados, though really I ought to be, I suppose. I just wish it would stop raining!

I am STILL without power!!!!!  I am at work (where I do have power and internet), so I am sneaking on here for a second, but my house has been without power since Thursday morning.  I feel like I am living in the stone age!

Man... that sucks eggs. Any guess-tamation of when you might get it back? Hopefully they'll get their rears in gear and restore power to that area quickly.

Stay cool, Heather. I'm sure it will all work out fine.

Ouch - I have a friend who got hit hard by a hurricane a couple of weeks back (he's safe, though, which is what counts), so I hope you guys get through it fine.

*sends good vibes their way*
