Yes, our hurricane warning was just lifted this morning at 10:30. We had big winds last night around 2 a.m. and lots of rain. We got our shutters up on Wednesday and brought in all our patio furniture and planted pots. It was a full days of work for us 3 to do. Our bishop from our church came to help us with the shutters. I baked our bread, filled up our water jugs, etc. Nestor put sand bags all around our patio doors since we have a pool. We had a few power surges but our power stayed on. At the last minute before landfall, this MONSTER veered to the east just enough to put us out of danger. We appreciate all the prayers in our behalf. We pray for all the people of Haiti and the Bahamas.
