Hi, George,

We will keep you in our prayers as the storm approaches. Hurricanes are
not fun; I lived through a bunch of them in the
'50s on Long Island.

I will never forget the time that I was in high school when my mother
asked me to put up the storm windows as a big storm approached. Being a
wise***kid, I thought it would be smart to put them on wearing my swim
suit. WRONG! I had no idea how much rain driven at nearly hurricane
force would feel on my skin. That's a lesson I am not soon to forget.

Nowadays, the big worry is getting out of bed, barefoot, after a quake:(
