I feel like my post yesterday minimized the danger of this storm to people on the coast. It's a nasty one, and even though we're hoping for rain and looking forward to a good storm (we're supposed to have thunder storms and gusting up to 50 mph), the people on the coast are facing the loss of their homes. Even though it's just down the road, it's hard for us to really imagine since we've never lived through a hurricane. I hope everyone is safe and if there is a huge amount of damage as they are predicting, that it is handled well and compassionately.
We're still hoping for rain. And electricity.
