"How's the fam?"
That's a question I've been asked a lot lately, and I am fortunate enough to answer that question with, "They are safe, and their homes sustained minimal damage."
Thanks to all who sent good thoughts our way, and thanks to everyone for caring so much. :) I'm so amazed at all the people who offered to help, including people who know me only through this little blog of mine. Y'all are the best!
Now, I'm hoping that my family can stay put for a while and that they don't have to head for Tennessee (closest place where they could find a room) for Ike.
Speaking of Ike, I want him to fizzle out and not do any more damage anywhere!
