Hurricane Irene

  It's hard to believe just yesterday we were on the beach and it was beautiful
 I didn't edit these, I don't have time but I wanted to get them up for history's sake.

The waves were already huge and the current was unbelievable

The girls had to stay on shore or barely get in.  We were with our new friends, the Jaski's.

Anna Claire and Piper dug in the sand

And Reese wandered to and fro

This is Gracie, Lucy, Lilly, and Lauren

They don't look nearly as big as they were

The surfers were enjoying it

Even though you wouldn't know it from these, we are expecting a category 3 Irene to hit here Saturday.  She is bringing some serious wind and rain.  We are told we could get up to 10 inches of rain and a 9 ft storm surge.  Our neighborhood is on the waterway and there are ponds all over it.  Including in our back yard.  The town has lowered the water in them in hopes that it will help.

We are guaranteed to lose power and it could be weeks before we get it back.

I am heading to Charlotte with the girls but Jeremy is staying behind.  Please pray for him and our friends here. I don't want to leave him.

The bridges and closing and the winds have started.....

Grateful we know the One who controls the storm
