Awaiting Hurricane Emily

Today is July 15,2005 and already Jamaica is bracing for its second Hurricane of the season. The question on everyones mind is should I, or should I not? Is this hurricane really coming or not? Some are saying because it's a 'woman hurricane' it can't make up its mind. What can I say, Jamaicans are colourful people.
Earlier this morning Hurricane Emily became a category 4 hurricane packing winds of up to 135 mph travelling WNW.'Straight fi Jamaica'. Since then it has downgraded to a category 3 hurricane packing winds of 115 mph travelling W. Still a dangerous lady but this latest course takes her further south of Jamaica making her seem less ominous to us.
So, back to the question, 'should I go through the whole nine yards'of preparation or not. My granny used to say 'An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure'.
Keep praying with and for us. This little island we love is already supersaturated with Hurricane Dennis which pasted last week. Even if we only get rain, some parishes can't take anymore.
'I gawn get ready'.
Nuff love

Sister Mary Margaret

SISTER MARGARET MARY, WHO WORKS FOR A LOCAL HOME HEALTH AGENCY WAS OUT MAKING HER ROUNDS WHEN SHE RAN OUT OF GAS.

AS LUCK WOULD HAVE IT A GAS STATION WAS JUST A BLOCK AWAY.

SHE WALKED TO THE STATION TO BORROW A CAN OF GAS TO START & THEN DRIVE TO THE STATION FOR A FILL UP.

THE ATTENDANT REGRETFULLY TOLD HER THE ONLY GAS CAN HE OWNED HAD BEEN LOANED OUT BUT IF SHE WOULD WAIT, IT WAS SURE TO BE BACK SHORTLY.

SINCE THE NUN ! WAS ON THE WAY TO SEE A PATIENT SHE DECIDED NOT TO WAIT & SHE WALKED BACK TO THE CAR. AFTER LOOKING FOR SOMETHING TO FILL WITH GAS, SHE SPOTTED A BEDPAN SHE WAS TAKING TO THE PATIENT.

ALWAYS RESOURCEFUL, SHE CARRIED IT TO THE STATION & FILLED IT WITH GASOLINE, & CARRIED IT TO HER CAR.

AS SHE WAS POURING THE GAS INTO THE TANK, TWO MEN WERE WATCHING FROM ACROSS THE STREET. ONE OF THEM TURNED TO THE OTHER & SAID, "IF IT STARTS, I'M TURNING CATHOLIC".
