Quick Note From Polly & the Mooch

As most of you know, we're down because of the Hurricane.

Our house had a tree crash into it after destroying our garage. we still have no power and the water is just now (i believe i heard that right) safe to drink. its been roasting outside and we ran out of propane to cook with. Luckily pals Jah and Wah did come by and check on us. they have power now and they helped us clean some of the debris. I cannot thank them enough for being such good people. also Dr. Wagner and family who provided a grill to cook up the last of our food and a place to shower when their place.

My mother lives in Diamondhead, MS which, if you didn't know, is pretty well dead center for where the storm hit. she moved there about 2 weeks ago. I had not heard her voice until last night when I found she had made it to alabama. We have no idea if her new home still stands.

No one in my family had heard from my Aunt, Uncle, and Cousins that live in or around Houma, LA. i have no idea how bad they were hit there and none of use know if they're alive.

i will check back here when i get power again or if find another computer that's loaned to me. otherwise, take care all.

I'm really really sorry to hear what happened in MS and to the people in the New Orleans area. My deepest sympathy and condolence to the people there who died and still facing the struggle to survice even after storm and trying get back into a "normal" life style.

I don't know how I can help to ease their emotional and physical pain they are experiencing right now.

I would like to quote a german proverb:
"Wenn die Nacht am tiefsten ist der Tag am nächsten."
( It’s always darkest before the dawn. )

I had been thinking of all of you guys, including your mama. I thought she was still in Pearl - had no idea she her new home was right in the middle of it all. God, I hope her place is ok!

I got a call from David today and heard that everyone was safe and sound. At least there is that!

Oh! And my thoughts are certainly with your Aunt, Uncle, and Cousins! I meant to mention that above but got sidetracked by a birthday cake.
