Obviously, this has been a pretty dark time for this country and those who have been victims of this disaster. I was actually in Ft. Lauderdale the day after it swept through south Florida and remember being really irritated that all the banks were closed because I needed to get something notarized. I was driven from bank to bank with no luck due to the power being down and I was becoming pretty impatient. Little did I know then that this storm would be the cause of so much pain and anguish in the days to come. When we heard the hurricane was coming through Florida, we changed our plans and stayed in Orlando the day it swept through. When we arrived to Ft Lauderdale the next day, we were a little disappointed to have missed it. In a weird way, we were curious as to what it would be like to be “in the storm”. It’s just so incredible that it has ended the way it has and to think we were disappointed at the time to not see it for ourselves.
I don’t really know what to say or what to offer up in the way of words other than to say my prayers are going out to those who are in need. I have read some great insights, thoughts, opinions on some of the blogs I frequent. There are some great posts regarding Katrina that can be found at the blogs of Will, Fred, and Myles. I second all of their notions, especially regarding how our President and his administration have been inept in dealing with this disaster. But what else is new. If he isn’t creating a disaster, he’s avoiding one.
