    Wow, Rita, what an experience to live through! And your writing skill shines through in your descriptions, like “My crepe myrtle tree was unraveling like loose thread from a wooly sweater.”

    So glad you and yours are all right.

    Hey Debbie!
    Thanks for stopping by. Yes, it was an experience I’ll never forget. In fact, after the storms finally subsided, I learned that things could have been much worse. I’m so thankful to still be here, and the people who suffered are in my prayers.

    Thanks again,
    Rita Lorraine
