Respite


An email from a friend wondering how we fared during the storm awoke me to the fact that not everyone knows we're OK! Thoughtless of me to leave anyone hanging. We're fine. The damage was north, around the state border and up, and we got just a hard rain. My heart goes out to those from the Caribbean to Galveston.

The first storm prep of the season is the hardest. Now some of that work is done and won't need to be done again. The timing of that batch of storms was deeply lousy, and getting through others would be a little less difficult. If nothing else, our inland friend Leila says we can bring our 3 cats to her place if need be. Whew.

So while storm season is still with us for a couple more months, we're relaxing a little for the moment. Scooter finds all storms to be an extreme inconvenience, and to be evidence of Poor Management on the part of his slacker Hoomans. Now that we've had a few sunny days, his daily rounds are less interfered-with, so he has decided we're doing an acceptable job.

Thanks for the update - I was wondering what was going on when you didn't update the blog. Glad to hear your preparations weren’t needed this time.

Cats are good at keeping us humble.

Ditto what everybody else has said so far. How'd Brookgreen fare?

Thanks to all!

Sherwood - i expect Brookgreen had no real problems. We were there 2 days before my post but not since. The rain was heavy, but there was remarkably little wind, so i doubt it was worse than the kind of light debris your basic thunderstorm would cause!
