Re: Ike-check in please

I'm thankful to hear from survivors, and anxiously waiting for word
from others.  You are all in my prayers.  Pam, don't worry about
clean-up.  Take care of yourself first.
We have had a lot of rain this week - after a summer-long drought.
I had resigned myself to a very early fall - cool nights down into the
low 50s - even in the 40s one night - and days not above the low 70s.
Trees are beginning to show color, and the dogwoods are full of red
berries and next years buds.  But it turned warmer during the night -
was warmer this morning than when we went to bed.  It's 87 now
and promises to go higher - and the humidity is about the same.
Thank goodness for central air-conditioning.
Still hoping those in the track of the storm are safe and dry.

Still raining here..... windy, but actually the wind isn't an issue, at least
yet.  I was worried about that as with the ground so saturated that the trees
may come down.

I haven't ventured anywhere today, but reading the reports, I see most roads
around here are either closed or reduced lanes.  We should attend a wake
tonight, but not so sure we can get there.... but it is supposed to be over in
3 hours, so we will see then...can't see it getting any better.

Although things are bad around here, it is no where near as bad as those in
