Potential Soggy Blog Here

Reports are coming in about Katrina as a category 5. A five is almost unimaginable in destructive power. I've moved from upset to frightened to terrified.

We plan to evacuate. Those of you who know me will know how to reach me. For the rest of you: pray for us and all those in the path of the storm.

I'm not sure we can be safe staying in our boarded up house if 100 plus mph winds come. We have only a small area without windows so the four of us and three kitties would be together with no air, no room to sleep, etc.

I do not know what the homeless are doing. I know that getting to a shelter on foot or by public transport will be very difficult. I do not know what the elderly without family are doing. I suppose pregnant women have evacuated already as the lowered pressure causes the onset of labor.

Lord, Lord, Lord....

When I can join you again, I will.
Grace and Peace,
St. Casserole

Oh, honey. Travel safely and know you are in our prayers here in faraway Maine (including at Small Church this morning).

hope you are doing ok. prayers for those in need are winging their way up.

when you get back - tell us about the chocolate cake. sounds like a thing we'd need here in November when there's no sun and we are all very low indeed

...and angels guard you on your way. Keep safe and dry. You're in our prayers.

Praying for safe travels as you leave, and for peace as you wait out the storm to return home.
