See I will carry you through the hurricane waters…

Welp, we survived the storm. There were a few moments that seemed like they were going to be dicey, especially when we saw the type of devastation that happened just 30 miles away from us, but somehow we managed to come out of it unscathed–no damage or power loss.

Just a couple days before the storm hit, one of my best friends and I saw Citizen Cope to celebrate her 35th birthday. We had a great night out and had a fantastic time at the show.

Towards the end of the set, he played this song, off one of my favorite albums:

The title of this blog is a lyric from the song–the 2nd line is “I will remember you in the blue skies.”

After 4 overcast days in a row, the sun finally broke through today, just for a few brief moments.

I’m hoping everyone else out there is OK and my thoughts go out to everyone still dealing with the after effects of the storm…Hopefully the sun will break for you all soon.

Here is a link to some organizations you can donate to to help those who were most affected by the storms:

  • This article overviews a bunch of different relief efforts, including the Red Cross, the Salvation Army, and Feeding America
  • Help the ASPCA or the Humane Society help animals affected by the storm

If you have any recommendations for other organizations to donate to, please feel free to post about them!
