Hurricane Michael

Once again life gets in the way of my blogging. This time, by Hurricane Michael. I live in Panama City, FL. Our town now looks like a war zone. Trees down everywhere. Most buildings have varying degrees of damage from minor to total destruction. Power lines down everywhere. Many areas were flooded. We have no power, water, or phone service. My area of town is not expected to get power until at least Oct 24. No telling when we’ll get phone service.

BUT

God is good!

My house is still standing with only moderate damage. My husband and I will have a lot of clean up to do but we are not homeless.

People are coming from EVERYWHERE to help out – from clearing roads and restoring power lines to providing food and water and even housing. Neighbors are being more neighborly. And life goes on even without hospitals and vets and fast food.

Our town may be devastated, but we will survive and rebuild!

In the meantime, I will be returning to Panama City tomorrow morning and will be once again without communication. If you don’t hear from me, don’t worry. I’m fine. And I will be back! Again!

  1. Aw, so sorry to hear about the devastation. I’m glad you are okay and that neighbours are drawing together during this time of tragedy. I hope this will seal a bond that will continue after it’s all over.

    I am looking forward to reading your fantastic posts again soon and I’m sure God will help you write something that will reflect bad being turned into good. God bless you as you tidy up your house and neighbourhood xx

  2. I’m so glad you made it through ok. Psalms 118:14 says, “Jah is my shelter and my strength,And he has become my salvation.” God is always there to help us through hard times. Sending prayers to you, your family and to all the victims of this terrible hurricane.
