Dean kept his eye off of Jamaica, but he sure had his hands everywhere.
So I can find humour now that the damage has been assessed and the lights have been turn back on. I am so happy that we have electricity and that the rains have stopped. The children were going mad with the confinement… But most importantly I am so happy that Dean came and didn’t have the effect to my friends and families that he could have.
As compared to Ivan which hit three years ago this hurricane didn’t have as much rain. The winds though were quite intense and definitely very scary. It passed during the day so that cut some of the scare factor. There was lots of damage to those areas close to the coastline and I have a friend whose parent’s house is no longer habitable due to the damage done by the waves and winds, but I have to give thanks that Dean came by my house offered up a spectacular show, caused alot of trees to dance- some to breaking point and left my home and house intact albeit a little wet.
Have to say prayers of thanks for life.
Thank you my friends for all your thought, prayers and well wishing.
Will probably talk on this some more as the week progresses.
