Yet this awful storm that has everyone nervous and worried, also brings with it much needed rain for some of the regions that were worst hit by drought over the summer. I know, I for one, am looking forward to the rain Isaac will bring. Heavens knows we need it. Even so, my heart goes out to the folks who live in Louisiana. The folks that stayed, after Katrina blew threw and brought such devastation to so many. The stalwarts who cleaned up, tore down and rebuilt. My heart goes out to them as they face another big storm and with it, I would imagine, some of their darkest fears. May the levies hold, the winds weaken, the waters recede.
So as I say, "Thank you" for the rain, I also think of the folks on the Gulf Coast. May you all be safe, unharmed, and relatively unscathed.
