Remembering Ivan

Today marks the 4th anniversary of Hurricane Ivan’s assault on Grenada in 2004. This post is published at 4:00pm, to commemorate the approximate time on that day that our roof was torn off our house.

And now, on this day in 2008, we have Hurricane Ike (Cat 4) wrecking havoc on the Bahamas, Turks & Caicos, Haiti and Cuba. Thoughts, prayers and wishes for safety go out to all affected. If you can, please donate to The Red Cross or local relief efforts.
