Breathing a sigh of relief

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

Well ... it is finally over, and I for one am glad. What might I be talking about? The election that seems to have been going on forever and ever. It was on the television night and day and my email box was full of political "stuff" every day. Plus I seemed to get dozens of political calls every day and my mailbox was full every day with political flyers. Enough is enough.

What really got my dander up, there are some fellows who are already talking about running in 2016. And to top it off, my guy didn't get in.

Now to Hurricane Sandy; Hurricane Katrina paled in comparison. The weather man followed it very closely and gave warnings in advance as to how bad it would be. But no one could begin to imagine how horrific it would turn out to be.

It was all of what was predicted and more. Thousands of families and businesses all up and down the East Coast have lost everything. Many have lost their lives, many are unaccounted for, and those that lived to tell about it are without water, food, a place to live -- everything that they owned is gone. And then on top of that another wicked nor'easter storm arrived on the tail of Hurricane Sandy and dumped tons of snow on the already ravaged coast. The temps dropped and the wind howled and those poor people still don't have electricity. Help doesn't seem to be arriving and it looks like a third-world country out there. Churches and groups of people have been helping, but FEMA still has yet to do anything.

I urge everyone to continue to pray for these people.

Last but not least, the deer season will be arriving on Saturday the 17th of November. The hunters are getting excited about shooting a deer, food is so high they are looking forward to some venison to put in their freezer. The hunting shack is about as ready as it will ever be, and they are all looking forward to the deer season.
