Thanks For Your Prayers (Again)

There were some stong gusts, but we here in Broward County made it through Jeanne largely unscathed. Most of the stuff liable to be knocked over in a 60 mph wind evidently was already taken down by Frances earlier this month.

I didn't even lose my electricity this time, which is a minor miracle--our electricity usually goes out for at least a few seconds in even an average thunderstorm here.

Unfortunately, our neighbors to the north didn't fare as well. Incredibly, Jeanne made landfall at exactly the same coordinates (to a tenth of a degree) as Frances, but came ashore as a category 3 storm (as opposed to Frances' 2). There are a lot of folks up there just about at the end of their ropes.

As always, if you're interested in helping, I'd recommend donating to the Salvation Army, Samaritan's Purse, or the North American Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention.
