I know there are still folks who are recovering from Laura. And now we have Sally. This is a crazy hurricane season. I hope all are doing OK. And no, I have not forgotten those on the west coast with the terrible fires. My heart grieves for them as well. Please, everyone be careful.

I'm far enough from the fires here in California as to not worry about them. However, I live about 500 miles away from them and the ash in the air is falling here and covering the plants, cars, etc. let alone the poor air quality. I guess wearing masks for covid keeps us from breathing in the fine ash and other dangerous chemicals from the fires. The sky is filled with what looks like rain clouds that is actually ash and it turns the sky various colors of orange and gray. I'm waiting to see a blue sky again.

We are fine. We are on the outer edge of the cone and so far it is just a storm for us, nothing to fear. We can handle a lot of rain so we don't fear flooding. The storm surge is of concern for those by the coast, but we are safe from that too. We chose the location of our home wisely, thanks to God's intervention.

The end of the alphabetical storm names is approaching and there are still 2 months to go on the season. Horrible.

Don't worry, if there is a hurricane after Z they will go to the Greek Alphabet. They won't run out of names. Sigh We are starting to feel the increased winds and have had rain much of the day. But we are always prepared for storms and are on the edge so won't get the worst of the storm.

The US is taking a beating for sure. The reports of all the devastation and destruction from the fires and storms are heart wrenching.

Mother earth seems to be angry. I am praying for all the people, but feel helpless. It all is so overwhelming.

I agree. it is overwhelming to me too. We have a friend who is following people who have been studying weather patterns that have occurred over the past 5,000 years, And we are in a weather cycle that is very unusual and is very different from what we are used to experiencing. And they say it will not be ending soon.

I have been thinking a lot about that old margarine (I think) ad in the Hippie Seventies. The lady in the crown of daisies pulled back and pointed her hand and said, "It's not NICE to fool with Mother Nature." Well, it isn't. We've got to do bette
