Greetings

My brother and sister-in-law got their power back yesterday afternoon so we hopped into the truck this morning and headed over to Coldwater for showers and hot food. I just got out of the shower and actually donned clean clothes! What a blessing. Joe just got out himself and we are getting ready to sit down to some breakfast.

As So reported I am going to work tomorrow, thank goodness. There is no power in the warehouse or in my office, but I will be working at the other site trying to make sense of the huge mess I know is waiting for me.

Thank you all for your prayers and well wishes. Things will be back to normal soon.

I am glad that you are okay. I have been seeing much about the storm on the news. I had concern for you and the critters.

AHHH wonderful!
Clean clothes were such a blessing after IKE.
You and Annie and the rest of the herd have been on my mind. I'm glad you are making it through.

Oh man, it's like camping only not voluntary huh? See now I'm a wuss, I'd pack what I needed in a car and drive a few states away. Cali is only a 2 day trip you know. I've driven it before in 2 days at least. Don't know how fast you drive but I'm a slow driver so I'll bet you could do it!
When you get back into a normal state of functionality go visit my blog. I tagged you for a little random photo thing. Don't worry, it's simple.
Stay warm and safe!

I hope things get back to normal for you guys very soon.

Meanwhile, I see that the babies are growing and staying warm & toasty.
