Ann,Thank you for caring for us all here.I started a response last evening,but needed to stop and do somethingelse,so it was lost.We here in southern Ms.,...the Lord had blessed us with rain all alongbefore hurricane Isaac,and when the storm came we got LOTS more rain.So the ground was well saturated,we got some wind,and some wind-gusts,...and so with the soil being so wet,it brought down a few trees,very old trees.But the Lord has blessed,and we are thankful.Also got big rains today. We live where there is hills and hollows so the water runs off ,...no problem with flooding as some,I understand,have had farther south of us. But should we get any strong winds,I am concernedthat some more may get up-rooted.We did get electric back on today,and for that too,we are thankful.God bless you Ann,and all the dear members here,Elizabeth
Just coming back on and finding your post, Sis.So glad you're alright. It seems that our members made it through OK as well. Thank GOD!!It really troubled me as Isaac stalled over LA for so long - but as horrible as it is for the residents there, it seems it could have been a lot worse?I stayed on it until it moved to Arkansas, so I'm really not anymore up-to-date than that last post up there.Well, Thanks for checking in!! :) I can breath now? Sure hope so!
