It’s been two weeks since Hurricane Matthew threatened to bring hurricane-strength winds inland. And it was really looking like it could happen.
Thankfully, Hurricane Matthew changed course slightly as the night progressed with the eye of the storm traveling off the coast. That meant that rather than hurricane-strength winds, we only experienced high winds. There were branches to clean up around the yard after the storm, but with no real damage.
Of course, the electricity went out. But I’ve got good neighbors. They have a gas stove and were quick to offer me my morning coffee! All in all, my neighborhood was without power for only 12 hours, though there were pockets of local areas that were without for much longer.
We got off easy. And we know it. And we’re thanking God for it. But that can’t be said for those along the coastal areas and we’re praying for them.
Join us in prayer for the many displaced families along the coastal areas of Florida, South Carolina and North Carolina who faced the brunt of the storm, as well as those more inland facing severe flooding. For them, getting life back to normal isn’t happening overnight. Thank you for praying.
