Thank You for Your Prayers!!

Hello my crafty friends, I just wanted to pop on here and thank you all for the prayers you sent my way.  We weathered Sandy out and came out unscathed so your prayers did the job!!  But....not everyone else was a blessed as we were.  As of now there are 7.8 million people on the East Coast who are without power, we didn't lose our power. There are 1.3 million of people in PA without power, 29 are dead across 8 states and including Cuba and Jamaica, Sandy killed over 50 people because of her. All my children that live in PA were safe and sound thank God.  My other children kept in touch the whole time checking to see how we were fairing.  Life is now clean up for many, many people.  Our church picnic woods took a hit, but it is low and always takes a hit from any flooding.  This time though a tree blow over uprooting and fell on an out building.  So damage, but minor compared to what it could have been.  Here are a few pics.  The picnic woods is just down the road from us about 2-2 1/2 miles.

Stop sign at my local Food Lion

The uprooted tree

This pic is of the road that my husband works on which is right next to the picnic grounds. The road is the white spot at the right back of the pic by the tree line.  The Conwago creek is right on the picnic grounds and everytime we have flooding this is what it looks like.  Last fall the church had refridgerators float down into the corn field across the road.  They went under the bridge and kept going.

I'm sure you have seen pics at what Sandy did to NYC and Alantic City NJ, as you know Sandy was the perfect storm and was fueled by other weather systems.  We have never experienced anything like this where I live.  My family and I rode out Hurricane Charlie years ago at my cousins house in Mrytle Beach and that was enough for me. lol  So this is my second hurricane with the only diffence being we never lost electric and got no damage at our house or on our road.  So thank you, thank you for thinking of us and praying for us!  You are all awesome!!!  Oh and this was after the water receeded some!  Crafty hugs to you all-Brenda
