This has been a trying week. While our Island was spared much of the predicted onslaught from rain and winds, we still weathered some flooding, downed trees/branches, and road closures. We hope that you are safe and the damage to property is minimal. We’ll just have to see what this week brings.
It’s at times like these that I am reminded of the importance of community and how helpful everyone has been from sandbag coordination to clean-up projects. Volunteers and neighbors are assisting one another. As the rains are predicted to continue much of our week, I imagine we’ll need to count on one another even more by the beginning of next week.
Our thoughts and prayers are also with our neighboring communities that have born the brunt of these storms.
Take care of yourselves and one another. Listen to the emergency notifications and warnings from first responders and government entities. We will keep you posted on available resources.
But as in all situations, the constant is change. Even though it’s raining and blustery, we will see sunny skies again.
