Quick update  
Just wanted to let people that cared know that despite minor damage to our home, and major damage to my brother in law's home, everyone is okay. No injuries, thankfully. Looters hit the area where my brother-in-law's mobile home was located. Dirtbags. They got about halfway through the neighborhood before the police routed them.

We, like so many others, have no power, but have managed to get water back--a fitting that was connected to our water hose snapped off, and water was pouring out of the side of the house. I have taken a lot of pictures, and will post them whenever I get a chance.

Abby and Jonothan did really well, and Abby only really got upset when I took flashlights away from her to conserve battery power.

Hope everyone else that was affected by Hurricane Charley is doing well, or as best as they can be. Take care, be safe, and my thoughts and prayers are with all of my LJ friends.

Current Mood: okayokay
Current Music: none

Like the one person's sign read: We Kill Looters. Well, not really, but we'd like to.

Yes, thankfully everyone's okay. I'm SO glad for that.

glad you are OK. so about his house. I am at Holtons and it is OK but 60 looked like crap and so did rifle range and whatever side road me and the powerline hung out on. Lakeland looked OK. Otown took it bad.

Ugh, sorry to hear the bad news. I'm still debating about Holton's place.

Glad to hear everyone is ok. Hopefully your mailbox didn't blow away, your postcard should be arriving soon.

Interestingly enough, my neighbor's box did blow away.

Knock the north and our blizzards all you want, but when hurricanes come about, we just get a lot of rain.

I'm glad to hear everyone is okay.

As long as the babies are alright I can sleep easy! Sorry you had to get hit with that. :( Hope you get everything back up and running soon! I am in Missouri, but you can crash with me for awhile! I have a comfy recliner I don't mind sleeping on!
Michael: Jonothan and Abbyservermonkey on August 15th, 2004 02:57 pm (UTC)
Yes, definitely. The babies are doing well, and will be nice and comfy up in Jacksonville soon.

:) Thanks for the offer, and if I did take you up on it, I'd be the one that should get the recliner. :)

Aloha silly monkey.

Makeshift repairs on the sibling's roof completed on Saturday. Felt pretty good to go "blue collar" over the weekend to help with clean-up and repairs. Unfortunately, I have to strap on my "white hat" in a few hours to work my "real" job.

Good to see you this weekend. Only wish it was under better circumstances.

Current Temptation:
Dumping "real" job and going into the roofing business. :-)

Re: roofie
Man, it was SO GOOD to see you. Good eyes, spotting me as I drove by.

Re: Oh wow...
Yay! Very cool!

Yeah, I'm going to be a bit slow on the LJing until things return to something resembling normal.

Thanks! I'm hanging in there, and can't wait until power is restored.
