My daughter, a 4th gr. teacher is now sitting in the middle of Ophelia, with no power, water coming in her walls(she is not at her apt. but her roommate is), and her school she heard on the radio is flooded. Please keep all down there in your prayers. She just called on her cell and said she can't imagine being in Katrina if this is this bad! Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers.
What's her name and where exactly is she, Sunlover? It looks like the outer banks of NC are getting hit right now, but it's also being reported that SC is being affected as well. Regardless, she's in my prayers already. Hope she's OK!
My daughters name is Morgan, and she lives right in Wilmington on Wrightsville beach. She had kept contact with us on her cell. She got to go back to her Apt. this morning. She has water damage in her apt. and food spoiled but so much more fortunate than those in Katrina so we are very thankful. Her school is in session but she had to take the day off to get back to her apt. and view the damage. Thank you all for your prayers. She is a devoted teacher and couldn't find a teaching job in Ohio so that is why she moved to NC. She just wanted to teach!!!! Thanks again!!!!!!! You guys are great!!!!!!
Sooooo happy to hear that your daughter is safe. You said that she couldn't find a teaching job in Ohio. Is that where you live or where she went to school? I am an ex-Buckeye. Both my hubby & I were born & raised there. We now live in PA., but still call Ohio 'home'.
I know it is a relief, for you, to hear that she is ok, just busy getting her apartment back in order.
One of my sons-in-law is from Wilmington, where his family still lives. In fact, my daughter and her family visited Mark's folks earlier this summer as they do every year. I really feel bad for those people in eastern NC. They get more storms than we do here in Florida.
I'm so happy to see that Morgan is okay, and that she'll be back teaching shortly. You must be very proud of her. She remains in our prayers, believe me, as do all the North Carolinians and others in the path of Ophelia.
We are from Ohio!!!!!!!!!!!!! She attend Bowling Green State University!!! Home of Charlie Frye from the Cleveland Browns. My girls went to high school with him!!!!!! Sincerely, thank you all for your prayers and thoughts.
