Jeanne Passes Through

We survived our third hurricane. Fortunately it went south of Orlando and since we live north of the city, we only got the outer edges of the storm. The local news reported that our area had wind gusts of 64 miles per hour. The end result is that it has been raining since 3:00 last night and the wind has been gusting on and off the whole time. We lost power for about five minutes this morning. The lights went out and then Abby prayed that they would come back on. Next thing you know, they were back on. Surveying the damage it appears that we just had a few downed limbs and that’s about it. I will probably even be back to work tomorrow, even though Abby’s school has been canceled for the day. It’s funny how each hurricane has only hit on the weekend. Jeanne was heading our way about a week and a half ago, but then turned away from us and looped back and headed back towards us. Right now the wind is still whipping outside, but Jeanne has been downgraded to a tropical storm and is just to the northwest of where we live. Hopefully this is the last one of the season. We aren’t holding our breath.
