A Beautiful Day Today

Saturday, September 9, 2017

It’s a beautiful day today.  Right here on the May River.

Blue skies.  Low humidity.  Temperatures in the 70’s. Birds chirping.  Butterfly’s flitting.  You get the picture.  It’s why we live here.

There’s just one little problem, of course, and her name is Irma.

On my walk this morning I saw several people I know.  The question we asked of each other was not “How are you?”  We all know the answer to that one.

The real question is “Are you staying or leaving?”

We all have our reasons for our decisions and not one of them is easy to make.

There’s really nothing more to be said.   All we can do is wait and see.

We only know that wherever Irma goes, there’s bound to be catastrophic devastation.  And for that, we are deeply, deeply saddened.
