Just a quick update - I just got a message from Carrie (tigerpixieart)! She and her family are fine! Their power & phone service has been knocked out, but everybody is okay =) She wanted me to post up here to let you all know that she is fine (since she lives in Pensacola which got hit by the hurricane of course!).
I'm so happy to hear it - I thought that might be a relief to a lot of you all too =)
