Rain, Rain , go a away!

I officially missed the second hurricane to hit our area in 8 years. Eight years ago we evacuated for Hurricane Isabel, and 4 days ago we left town right before Hurricane Irene got here.  Thankfully there was no damage to our house, no trees toppled in our yard, and our roof is still in tact.  There was a water main break on our cul-de sac and power outage for three hours, tremendous rain and wind for 24 hours straight!  Our favorite place -The Outerbanks of N.C. got slammed pretty hard.  When I mean pretty hard I mean, houses lost completely or damaged severely and parts of Highway 12 are gone!  I don't even want to begin to talk about those who survived and decided to stay in the Outerbanks and now can not get to the main land because guess what? No Highway.  My heart sank when I saw the very same area I was  in last week devastated by this Hurricane.  My only hope besides prayer is that we who can help others in the aftermath of this storm, do the right thing and help and make a choice not to be too busy to aid those who's lives have been devastated.  Yes, I am my brother's keeper.
