Last Night was the eye of the storm. So this morning I woke up and waiting for the sun to rise. The second it was in the sky I was out the door with Camera in hand. Why don’t we take a break from my words for a little bit and really the pictures tell it all.

    • Thank you Kim! I felt little bit guilt after posting this post and pictures cause alot of people have it SO much worse. As soon as some roads cleared up we went to pick up some family and their house was completely flooded, cars gone and we keep hearing of neighbors and friends who lost their houses. Thankfully, everyone is alive and well but the news is filled of stories of people losing loved ones. I just hope everyone recovers quickly and stays safe. What makes me sick, I heard in my Aunt’s neighborhood that got hit bad everyone is without power, people started looting and violence erupted, a cop was shot. Just savagery. But, we saw army and natural reserve en route , I hope they are going there to help sort things out.
