Well, we made it through another one.

Our special guardian angels were at our side again. Let's hope it's the last for the season, but at this rate, I'm not putting my patio furniture back out there until November. Jayne

I'm about as ready as I can b

so keep your fingers, toes, eyes, arms and anything else that you can crossed that Jeanne doesn't do much damage. The ground is still saturated from the last storms and the persistent rains in between. The debris has not yet all been picked up from the previous storms so there are a lot of cut up trees, etc. Anyone want some cheap firewood? Just come get it. Bring boots, snorkels, generators and gas!
Depending on how soon we get power/phone/cable back, I'll try to let everyone know status as soon as I can. Jayne
