Unfolding Tragedy

 

Hurricane Florence took down this tree a block from where I live. (My building was untouched.) Many more trees were toppled. The flooding will stay with us for weeks. Do pray.

It is sad t see big old trees battered this way, Larry.
Larry Bliss: Indeed it is. The owners were quite fortunate the tree did not hit their house.
Whoa. That was some storm. Hope the flooding recedes soon so people can get back to "normal".
Larry Bliss: It is going to be quite a while before people here return to normal. I am not my usual self these days, and that bothers me.
Oh my goodness... at least it didn't fall on the house. So glad you're safe. Give yourself space to absorb it all. My Dad in Greer, SC just got lots of rain, not too much wind, and his neighborhood has not flooded. Praying...
Larry Bliss: The downgrade to Cat 1 was misleading--it doesn't take into account the slowness of the storm and the rain it brought, nor the flooding. Prayers are appreciated.
Quel dommage pour ces beaux arbres !
Larry Bliss: Je suis triste chaque fois qu'un arbre tombe en panne pour une raison quelconque. Ils nous donnent tellement.

Yes Larry this is awful
Larry Bliss: Well, it shall all pass. Many are worse off than me, especially in the cities of Wilmington, new Bern, and Fayetteville.

My thoughts are with you and the people in Carolinas - even on the first pagina of our Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung a photo of the flooding in NC was to be seen. It is a tragedy indeed, and the climate change is a fact!
Larry Bliss: Still there will be some fools who don't understand science.
and the frequency of such tragedies seems to be increasing, Larry.
Larry Bliss: Hurricanes are becoming stronger and more frequent. They are so large they travel slowly, producing more rain.
I am thankful that your building is untouched and we do realize this hurricane has an impact on all of you who live there. I hope you stay safe, Larry. Keeping you in our prayers.
Larry Bliss: many thanks, my friend...
Something like this makes us realise just how fragile we are against the forces go nature. I hope all will be well with you
Larry Bliss: We forget we are animals that depend on nature to live.

The power of nature to destroy our world is quite incredible. There is no way of knowing who will be a victim.
Larry Bliss: I am so very glad to be still standing.
This image shows how destructive the powers of Mother Nature can be, Larry. Hopefully there will be no more loss of life due to Florence and reconstruction will be quick so folks can return to the homes that were flooded & damaged. Stay safe!
Larry Bliss: Thank you, Beverly...
Oh dear! It is only the beginning of the season. We are getting rain from the remnants at the moment. Prayers.
Larry Bliss: We have planned a beach vacation to Emerald Isle, which has been hard hit. Likely our trip will be cancelled.

A lot of people here (Carolina), the Philippines, China and related areas will be suffering.
Larry Bliss: This time may well be known as the Age of Calamity.
Oh dear, thats sad, stay safe Larry.
Larry Bliss: I will. Thank you Frank.
