Re: Rita update

Good to hear you're "weathering" it, Noreen. Strange about the power and cable. We've got satellite TV and have never lost signal during a storm. Never lost power either, except when some drunk ran into a pole and once when lightning took out a transformer.

Hi all, we're fine. VERY VERY VERY windy, even now, and raining on and off.
Can't even go outside, too dangerous. Dh did venture out earlier at first
light to check things out a bit between rains.....some roof damage, lots of
limbs down, large pots tipped over, but other than that we're fine. While
out, dh got hit by a branch, got a bloody nose, other than that we're fine.
Heard about lots of trees down in our area. Most of our area has no power, but
we're fine here. Funny too, because any time it storms we lose power and
cable, and now through this, we have both so far. Keeps popping on and off, but
so far back on. Dh is making coffee, it's cold. I always thought that a
hurricane was hot. That is why they said no lightening, since there is no clash
between hot and cold, BUT it's a cold wind, so perhaps it's whipping so fast
that it feels cold, you know like a fan does? Anyway, we still have really
ominous dark clouds above us and extremely windy. So not totally out of the
woods yet. Tornado watch too. Oh, they just said we currently have
sustained winds of 35 mph with gusts to 55 mph. Gee, during the night they said we
got gusts of 75, I slept through it all, took two Tylenol PM's had such a
weather migraine, was a killer, so had to do something. Guess that's good that I
slept through it.
Anyway, wanted to touch base while we still had power....and thank you all
for the prayers and positive thoughts.....animals all fine, a bit shook up, but
