Quick update

I've been in contact with The Big Guy throughout the day, and he is doing just fine. Power, internet, and cable are all out, but no major damage, and no flooding (perhaps down by the lake... he didn't report on that in his drives). Branches down all around town, but not the big trees through houses like with Katrina. They were still experiencing some pretty fierce wind and rain this evening as one of the outer bands passes over, so there may still be a few more problems, but probably not too much. We most likely won't be heading home tomorrow, but I'm hopeful for Wednesday.

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.

and PLEASE check out the Monday Mission participants in my post below. I really appreciate you guys playing along.

And look... being evacuated and all I'm mostly skimming blogs on my reader, but just don't have the time and energy to read and comment like I usually do. But I'm around.
