Sherrilyn Kenyon's Post

I just finished reading Sherrilyn's Kenyon's post concerning Katrina. As many of you probably know, I'm a huge SK fan. Her Dark-Hunter series is set mostly in New Orleans. She talks about the impact on her personally (she lived in Mississippi and NOLA for many years), as well as the impact on the series and her DH convention. As always she is eloquent and inspiring...

Also, there's a really cool site called Do Something, which is organizing "We Got Your Back" donations. It's a great way for kids to help other kids affected by Katrina. They buy backpacks and fill them with school supplies and other personal items. It's a large campaign, sponsored by Nickelodeon and many others. It's yet another wonderful way to contribute.

Hey, Kelly -- thanks for posting a link to SK's comments. I had been meaning to see what she was saying, but only got around to it today.

By the way, I hope y'all fare well with Ophelia . . .I'll keep my fingers crossed!

Thanks, Jennifer! It's windy and very dark here this morning. It's very warm, too. Living in NC, we get a few hurricane landfalls or near-misses every year. I'm not in a flood zone, so that's good. We're supposed to get hurrican-force winds and rain as of now...

Okay, so now they're saying the winds won't be bad at all. :)
