Happy Friday Everyone
September 14, 2018 9:30am CST
It's a cloudy start to our day here and I am hearing that we might actually see some sunshine over the weekend. Not only have we been worrying about everyone in the path of hurricane Florence but last night I saw that Boston was hit with gas explosions and they were evacuating the suburbs of Andover, North Andover and Lawrence. My heart stopped because that's where a good portion of my family live. My aunt and uncle, all my cousins and their children. I saw that the evacuations were no joke but couldn't get in touch with any of my relatives. Thankfully this morning my aunt called and said they are okay and all of them finally made it my cousins house in New Hampshire. No one seems to know what's exactly going on but it's scary just the same. So, this morning I'm giving thanks that my family escaped harm and praying for those being hit with hurricane Florence. My day is going on as usual but it just seems like I'm constantly being drawn to the tv to see what's happening. What's new with you on this Friday?

@Marilynda1225 It seems that there is getting to be more gas leaks and fires in the cities now. I wonder if the companies have been keeping up with repairs properly or just band aid fixing to maximize profits and it is now coming back to get them.
@Marilynda1225 Thank you. We had a nice time together. He's such a good husband to forego any fun this summer and stay home and look after me after like he did. We both love going to that area, its like stepping back in time. All except for the hotel room, we stay about 20 minutes away, because we like hot running water and electricity!
I'm a little short of sleep because of working till the wee hours this morning. Looks like a beautiful day. Florence has pushed warm air and blue skies our way. (The rain will come). I will try and make the most of it. Will be checking for info from friends and family in harm's way.
Glad to hear that your family is safe. As for me, I haven't slept for more than 24 hours already because it rained nonstop last night and the winds were howling due to the super typhoon. Plus, there was a power interruption that lasted for more than 8 hours. The power just got back this morning. My body clock's really messed up. I have a terrible headache right now, but I don't want to take any medications to stop the pain.
