Hurricanes and high winds



If you are seeing this post, it is because Hurricane Irma did a number on the power grid in my area. I'm preparing for the coming storm, and I fully expect that where we live, there will be trees downed and lines on the ground for a while.

Hurricanes are a tremendous force, and our trees here are in "full canopy" with gorgeous racks of leaves that make their branches quite heavy. Those heavy tops can make the trees topple when the ground is saturated with rain, and the wind is howling.


I'm scheduling this, but I hope you won't see it! Hopefully, I will be able to post as usual. But if I'm not here, please join me in prayer for our first responders and our power grid teams, as they struggle to restore power and sustain life in hurricane-torn areas.

Pray for the restoration of Texas, and then for the folks impacted by this newest devastation in Florida, Georgia, and the Carolinas. As I'm writing, it looks like the storm will track straight through here.

Blessings to all, and prayers for safety.

  11. Hey Snoodles, I didn't realize you were in Florida. I don't miss our hurricane days before we moved to Colorado!
