All Clear

O*p*h*e*l*i*a, that outrageously slow moving hurricane, is finally leaving our coast. We received little effect here in the swamp-- a few bouts of gusty winds, heavy clouds that wouldn't spill their rain, and oppressive humidity were our only indicators that a storm was out there.

Further south, my son experienced heavy rains and stronger winds. His roof was leaking and his power went out, but all in all, he fared well.

Some folks right along the coast suffered some flooding and wind damage -- nothing too bad, thank goodness.

I want to thank all of you for your expressions of concern and your well-wishes! We were hit hard two years ago by Hurricane Isabel and those memories are still fresh. It is reassuring to know there are people out there who care.

The roof thing sucks, but glad you folks are okay otherwise.

Completely glad Swampy Jr. still has a roof, leak or no. You'll have to tell him however that the staff at YPS!! has deemed his packaging...well...leaky. (That's not good by the way.)

*wonders if REO Speedwagon's "Riding the Storm Out" is appropriate at this time being unable to remember all the lyrics*
