Irene, meaning peace, is misnamed. I'm sure that whoever is responsible for naming hurricanes never gave it a second thought.
Our precious son and daughter-in-law, along with her extended family, are in an area of Irene's path. I hope and pray that they are safe. I know that many of you, along with loved ones, are also in the path. I hope and pray that all of you are safe.
Take good care and keep in touch as you are able.
