Back from Mississippi Coast
    #4606499 - 09/01/05 12:56 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Hello, my friends.  :sun: I have gotten out of the area and want evryone to know that I am safe, warm, and relaxing with a nice cold adult beverage as I type this. It's not every day one can say they have endured the worst natural disaster in the history of the nation, but here I am. I know that many people did not make it out, howeever.  :sad:

We traveled north and are staying with relatives about 250 miles inland. Folks, a nice hot shower is a thing of beauty. I have gotten about six hours sleep over last ..that is it, three days? Heh. Anyway, I may catch some Zzzz soon and will have more to say later. As for now, thanks for thinking about everyone affected by this disaster, we will overcome it!!

-Jell

Sweet! Big Smile on my face. Glad you stayed safe and got out.

Enjoy that hot shower, dry bed in AC and cold brew!

:heart:

I'm glad you're safe.  :grin:

Good to see you out of there ok, Jellric!!!

Give us some news, when you can! What's the situation really like? Is it as crazy as all the talking heads on CNN tell us?

Tren, it's even worse than what they say on the news, unfortunately. Because I just know people are dying even as I type this- people who died waiting for help that never came. We were lucky in that we didn't get the storm surge since we are further inland, but there is a lot of destruction and suffering and my parents have not been heard from since Monday and I can't tell you how incredibly frustrating it is not knowing.  :sad:

My parents were scheduled to be up here today and I keep hoping they'll pull up any minute. I got excited earlier when I heard a vehicle come into the driveway..that old, familiar tires on gravel sound- I was sure it was them - turned out to be the mailman.  :rolleyes:

I will have more to say later I'm sure, but right now I am feeling sick and I'm very tired, but I can't sleep for some reason.  : I do want to say I appreciate everyone's positive energy- I will get recharged soon I'm sure!
