    What a picture! Hey, would you mind if I snagged it and posted yet another blog with it? This is so inspiring! To me, a Canadian, this calls to mind the indominable spirit of our cousins across the border, standing firm, bearing a torch regardless of what comes... I know, corny. But then, I am :) Thanks for sharing, doll! Hugs to you, Cyndi

    A beautiful picture. As one who lives in a much more hurricane-prone area (deep South Texas) and as a native of the mid-Louisiana coast, I know the power and dangers posed by hurricanes. One of my grand nephews is in New York now. I hope all precautions have been taken and that damages are minor and confined to property and not people.
