Whew! South Florida survives Georges!

Glad ro report that we only got the outermost bands of the hurricane, so many
prayers were answered. Thanks!
Just prior to the storm reaching us, the sunset sky was one of the most
beautiful I have ever seen. I wished I could snap a picture of it..... coral,
mauve, purple, shimmering gold and silver an touches of azure that took the
form of a mountan lake or bay with shimmering sunlight upon the water. We were
driving one of our cars to shelter and it felt as if I cou ld drive into this
sunset scene before me...Surreal! Wow.

No damage. We were cozy in our home, never lost power and it was rather like
being holed up in a cave. Except for the daylight coming through our kitchen
skylight, we would never know what time of day it was! We now have some heavy
rains as the other side of Georges passes up the peninsula. I hear some
knocking against the house but can't determine what it is because I cannot
look out. Ah, the mysteries of storm-shelter life. The strange thing is that
by tomorrow, the sky will appear as if it never happened. The debris will be
the only hint George was here.

Will keep ya posted.
Marsha in hurricane Florida.
