Where Do I Start ...

Before I start on this post I want to thank Sandra S. for her very generous donation.  Thank you!  Thank you!   Thank you!  

We finally have Internet service back ... I have missed blogging but with everything that has happened the last 4 days I truly don't know when I would have had time.

I have learned so much ...

I have much to share ...

But I need a little more time to process it all ...

So, I'm going to share a few pictures that will hopefully set the stage for my future post ...

These pictures were taken in the neighborhood where I live the morning after hurricane Matthew blew through ...

This is a small sample of what 100+ mile per hour wind and torrential rain did to our little community ... (little did we know, it was only the beginning)




one of two trees that fell across the road we live on totally blocking it ...


trees that brought power lines down ... (this is one of many reasons we lost power)


 a leaning power pole ... another tree down ... in the road ...


a broken and leaning power pole ... a tree had already been cut and removed from the road ...


more downed trees ...


and more downed trees ...


how would you like to wake up to this in your yard ...


this was a neighbor's yard ...

This is just a small sampling, there were trees down on people's houses, in their yards and in surrounding woods. Out buildings were blown down.  There was water standing in yards, across roads and sadly ... in houses.  This was all within the little community where we live.  At this point we had no idea how widespread the damage was and that it was much worse in places that were not so far away.

The sun was shinning and it was a beautiful day ... except for all the destruction!

A Working Pantry is more than just about food! It's about household items needed to keep my home running smoothly readily available when needed.  It's about keeping a gift trunk so that I'm ready for any gift giving occasion.  It's about a lifestyle.  It's about keeping my home and looking well to the ways of my household and it's about doing it all as frugally as possible.  I hope you enjoy what you read here.
