Good morning. The sun is shining here and it's rather lovely outside. We may get some rain later today and tomorrow. As we celebrate Labor Day, we are all sending prayers for everyone in the path of Hurricane Dorian, especially the folks in the Bahamas.
This wicked storm is destroying those beautiful islands. Already, a seven year old boy has died and his sister is missing. It is gut wrenching to lose a child and have another missing. My heart cries for these folks. As I watch the weather videos on TV, I wonder just how long these folks can hang on. The hurricane is just sitting on them, not moving.
Even though the hurricane is one hundred miles away from Florida, some coastal areas are already feeling the wrath of the winds and water surges from it. The TV just said that the outer band rains are now over Florida. Many cities and town are being evacuated.
Here's an image I borrowed from the web to show just how far reaching this wicked hurricane is. This map was issued at 5 am this morning. As you can see, it's path takes in most of the eastern coast of the U.S. At the top of this map is the southeastern part of my state, Massachusetts. Folks, this storm is humongous!
On TV, they have been showing all the power trucks from many surrounding states that are lined up in Florida to begin working to restore power outages as they occur. It's a beautiful sight, folks. Americans coming together to help each other.
I have a lot of friends and family members living in Florida. Thankfully, most of them are in the western half of the state. However, some are on the east coast and I'm praying for their safety. Those of you living in the eastern parts of Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia, please keep up with the weather alerts and head for safer ground as soon as possible.
That's it for this morning. I want to catch up on my blog reading and then it's back to following Dorian's path. So, till tomorrow, please stay safe and God Be With You.
Hugs, Edna B.
