Things Are Getting Back To Normal After Hurricane Ike

Things are getting back to normal. We are cleaning around the house and resting fro the busy week. It is amazing how the neighborhood came together this week. I am proud of everyone.

We talked to neighbors we had not talked to in months (or years). It was very gratifying to see everyone pitching in to help each other.

I will post some further thoughts (and photos) about the hurricane. I think people can learn from any situation. I know I learned much about myself and other during this trying time.

"God allows us to experience the low points of life in order to teach us lessons we could not learn in any other way. The way we learn those lessons is not to deny the feelings but to find the meanings underlying them." - Stanley Lindquist

Glad to hear that things are beginning the return to "normal."

Now the important question--who cares about the refineries, when is the Imperial PureCane Sugar plant going to be back up? For those of us who rely on Dublin DP's, there could be a real crisis looming!:)
