Good morning everyone. I was sick all day yesterday, didn't get much sleep last night so I am tired and worn out this morning. It's going to be a cool day today with a chance of rain this afternoon and tomorrow. The chance of sleet has been called off so it's just going to be cold and raining tomorrow.

Thanks to everyone who gave to Old Fella Burke County Animal Rescue to help out with the puppies. Your gifts are appreciated very much.

The fur gang is well as is Sue. I wish everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

Hi everyone - glad the meetup went fine for all.

Haven't been able to get online until our internet and cable came back up only a half hour ago. Hurricane Michael decided to visit us and this area last week, and from here to about 60 miles of us is like a war zone. Fortunately the storm jigged 5 miles east at the last minute and our neighborhood was spared the direct hit we expected. We have roof damage and trees, fences signs and buildings down everywhere - the poor folks across the bridge from us have been devastated. Not much of Panama City left without major damage. Mexico Beach took a direct hit and to think that the beachfront restaurant that we had lunch in a few weeks ago was wiped out, along with most of the other homes there. Multiple counties here are under dusk to dawn curfews and looters have been out a lot. Fortunately our power and gas came back on, on Friday, although we will have to boil water for the next few weeks. We still have no cell service and drove 20 miles ( took us 4 hours) this morning to get a signal so that we could let friends know that we are surviving. We are still in shock at seeing the damage. Our fiver was in a storage lot about 3 miles east of us. We checked on it yesterday - the winds blew it sideways into a Class A and the front legs sank about 6" into the mud but, amazingly she is in one piece and (as far as we can tell) undamaged.


Please keep the folks in this area in your prayers.


We just got done traveling I-10 from Pensacola to Tallahassee and the amount of damage is still amazing. There are stretches where all the trees have been sheered off about 10-15 feet above ground and others uprooted. We pulled off around Marianna, intending to pull into a Hardee's truck parking area. They were open, obviously serious damage somewhat repaired but their sign was a mangled piece of junk. All the billboard signs along the interstate were trashed. This went on for about 100 miles.

Good morning everyone. We are home and not at church. Sue is now sick with the same thing I have. It's cold outside with the threat of rain and just a little further north they have the threat of snow. Today will be a good day to stay indoors with a nice fire in the fireplace.

I have been blessed in that we have never experienced the full force of a hurricane in my home area. Once we were visiting my Uncle in Virginia when hurricane Carroll came through. The eye of the hurricane come over the house which was located on the Chesapeake Bay. I was scared to say the least.

I hope all is well with everyone and I wish you a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

The destructive force of hurricanes is very impressive, as Garland and I witnessed first hand in 1996 with hurricane Bertha and Fran. We drove from STL to Carolina Beach (Wilmington) NC on I-40 shortly after they blew through. We had a condo in Carolina Beach at that time. As far NW as Winston/Salem we started seeing damage. After getting through Raleigh, the damage started to really ramp up. I think half of the traffic on the highway at that point were power utility trucks and crews arriving from all over the country. We drove through many, many miles of massive tree damage, as you described. It was not to be forgotten.

After having set thru the roaring and damage from Ike in 2008 and the flooding of Harvey last year I would like to never see one again.

We had to make a run to the emergency vet this morning with Princess and send her to the rainbow bridge. She took a quick turn for the worse last night and was in very bad shape this morning. I is very hard but a relief to know she is not in the pain anymore. It took less than 5 days from diagnosis to now. The vet said wednesday it was moving fast but this was quicker than she though as well. There were originally 4 dogs together, Cookie, Bubba, Oreo and Princess and now they are all together again.
