hurricane irene well a good time to do some carving

hi folks,, if you watch the news the past few days,, you will know about the hurricane that is coming up the coast,, well we are about 60 miles or so west of philly, right now it pouring like crazy, and i sure by morning many of us will be out of power and lots of tree will make it hard to travel,, we are on the outer part of the path but we are going to get 5 inches of rain along with winds up to 50 miles an hour, it should last about 8-10 hours and it should be out of here by afternoon sunday,, but getting rid of the storm is only part of it,, its the flooding and uprooted trees that become the problem for if not just for tomorrow but for a few days,, my cousin from holland just got on a plane last night to return,, if they had plan it for 18 hours later he and his family would be in new york,, for sure a few days,, i think he got back in time,, i have not heard that he is home but i think i would have heard if he was still in new york,, i pray that everyone makes wise decisions during the storm,, its not to prove how brave you are,,,, take shelter,, as much as i would like to go home i decided to stay overnight with my elderly folks,, they feel better that i am here and i feel better too, in case they need some help,, i am here,, and i dont have to worry about traveling here, i only a mile away, but there are many trees along the way, and in the past i could not get here because of the numerous trees that fell,, and something happens to my house well i did the best to secure things outside,, and wait and pray for the best,, well i did get a couple of carving completed today,, so it was not a total waste,, but it best when you can be with your family, ok folks,, if your living in the east ,, do as i do, make sure your knife is sharp and have a few projects to work on,, and it will make the storm pass faster when you only thinking about your carving,, take care and keep carving, arleen

I read your Saturday post. Today is Sunday I pray that the worst is over and that there hasn't been too much damage in your area. Good thing you and your parents were together. It's people who are most important, especially at a time like this. I'm glad you were able to be there for each other.
