My brother just got a call from a lady in N.C. She said they spent the entire Hurricane with my folks. My parents room didn't last 6 hours and the roof came right off..they went to a lower room and met the pple from N.C. She said we should be proud of my parents..they were very strong and level headed throughout the entire ordeal. My dad made alot of jokes and kept pple laughing.

She did say there were moments they did fear for their lives..but all in all..they did OK!

My parents "were" going to fly back home..but my mom basically said..Dammit Ken..we are now residents and I'm not leaving these pple behind. Therefore they have stayed to help rebuild.

They might fly home after a couple of weeks just to recoup and see the family..then go back to San Pedro.

My dad thought he found a bottle of rum and opened it to share with everyone. They were drinking out of cocunut shells. They thought it tasted rather "weak" and disovered it was actually water someone put in the bottle..probably to conserve. They all had a good laugh at that!

So there you have it. I won't be bugging anyone anymore if they have seen my parents!!!!

Estimated 3 weeks for power to be restored..according to this lady. Though my dad is trying to locate someone with a cell phone so he can call.
