Thoughts about Hurricane Irene

Irene was born off from Africa and came crawling thourgh the Atlantic.

Slowly she strengthened and became better organized as she traveled toward the US mainland.

Her track shifted as she veered toward Bermuda. She impacted the United States with a direct hit in North Carolina and up the eastern seaboard,hitting eleven states and finally ending up in Canada as a squal.

Winds, rains, flooding, tornados, enveloped cities, towns and small hamlets . Many had tired to prepare for its fury, but few could imagine the extent of the devastation that would occur.

Irene has gone, but its wrath, embers of destruction and havoc remain. Some lives are forever changed!

With all the science and technology that has occured, man still has no control over nature or the fury it can unleash. We are just mere mortals, caught in the sands of time and evolution.

Our hearts and prayers go out to those who were in her path and suffered at her expense. May God continue to be with them and give them the strength to pick up the pieces of shattered lives and move on.

Mean while, we keep a vigilant eye on the tropics wondering when the next hurricane will come along. It's a part of life we cannot control!.......

True, MaryGrace,
we have no control over these great forces
and aren't likely to have, ever.
And indeed spare a thought for all who have suffered.

John
