As I sit here watching the wind and rain outside and listening to the thunder I find myself thanking God that this time my family and friends are for the most part out of the path of the storm. While I hope the areas still in harms way are suprised by the lack of damage, I just wanted to take a moment to try to get others to realize how fortunate we are in SC. I was here for Hugo in 89 and although I was young I remember the damage afterward. If you are out of the path of the storm please take time to Thank God and say a little prayer for those that are still facing the storm. Just a brief pause may give you the perspective needed to recognize just how Blessed we are.
