2:00 Hurricane update..

Dear Friends,

I was able to have a brief talk with Philip a short time ago amidst the Hurricane.

The electricity has been down since last night. The winds were clocked at 80 miles per hour last night although currently he thought they were about 40 miles per hour.

So far there is no tide water in the Village. He did take a brief walk and noticed tree limbs down on Howard Street, but nothing major.

The storm is long and arduous. He is reading..napping..listening to the wind blow.

I only wish I could join him in a long game of Scrabble!!

I'll try and keep you posted. We are only having brief chats to save his cell phone for emergencies.

He wanted me to thank all of you for your concern.

Until I have more news,

Lou Ann
