Thankful & Blessed

Friday, September 15, 2017

Hi Friends! Very happy to report, Irma is gone. 47 Hurricane Seasons in Florida & this was the scariest storm I've been through. (Worse than Andrew)
Luckily. Luckily? We went through Matthew, last October....so 90% of dead foliage was already gone. My little town was basically spared. I heard yesterday, there are a few areas still waiting for power.
I am on the hospital grid, so the lights flickered, but never went off.
My work (office, coworkers) are in Miami-Dade & Broward Counties...they had severe damage & will be without power for a couple of weeks. Fortunately, no injuries.
I work for a great company!! They are taking care of all the employees...meals, water, ice, child care & time off as needed. More important, if you haven't read about it- Royal Caribbean Cruises has sent 4 ships to the Islands, with humanitarian aid and to evacuate residents/tourists to safety.
Today, I pray for the victims of a bombing in the London subway. So sad.
My vacation begins in 2 weeks & I'm going to the UK. I didn't get a cruise, so I'll be sending 2 weeks with my friends. The 1st week we are renting a cottage in Cornwall. The 2nd week is still up in the air. An ADVENTURE!
I hope all my SP Friends are Happy & Healthy!

    Thanks for the update. You have been on my mind for the last few days. Am so sorry about your coworkers in Miami. Will pray for them to recover & go on with their lives. On a happy note, enjoy your vacation to the UK. Been to London twice & liked it. It was different. We stayed with a friend who took us to Strafford upon Avon. It was a lovely place to visit. If you are near it, please go.

    Thanks for the complete Hurricane report...and truly appreciate RCC's efforts. The islands will be suffering greatly for so long...tourism will be such a hard hit, so glad the tourism industry is reaching out and I hope it continues. And the new bombing in London, awful, stay safe as you jump from the frying pan into the potential fire.
