Well, I made it through Hurricane Florence safe and sound, but unfortunately; my apartment was completely flooded!  I want to break down and cry about losing everything that I own, but somehow I have managed to keep it together.  I am taking it day by day right now.  I just wanted to update you guys to let you know that I, and all of my friends and family are safe from the Hurricane.

Isn’t it funny how you tend to take things for granted, like electricity, food, water, and basic supplies, until you suddenly don’t have them anymore.  I have also noticed that everyone in my community is pulling together and helping each other out.  People are donating food, water and supplies as well as helping remove trees and debris from neighbors yards and driveways.  It is unfortunate that it takes a devastating Hurricane to bring us all together, but nevertheless, we are all in this together.

The pictures below show some of the devastation being felt throughout my community.  I have also included some pictures of the first responders and their efforts to rescue as many people as possible during the storm.  However, please do not feel sorry or bad for us because we will get through this tradgedy and become a stronger community because of it!!
