Another tragedy

OK, all the fun just went out of the remnants of Hurricane Bill.

I have lots of funnies to tell you about our vacation, and pics of the surging seas today,
but I am not feeling the funny.

A ten year old girl was swept off the rocks at Thunder Hole in Bar Harbor a few hours ago. Coast Guard choppers are out, and the Cutter is searching the shore.
All boats in the area have been asked to assist in the search.

I am sick.
God Bless that family.

This on the heels of a former islander's teenaged son's untimely death in a car accident a few days ago. Today is his Memorial service. Chris took a boatload of people over to the mainland to attend.

Is it wrong that I want to grab The Big Guy and kids inside, and lock the doors?


  1. No. I'd want to hide in the house, too.

  2. I can't imagine the pain those families are going through.

    Even though Bill didn't come all that close to Florida, two people died boogie-boarding in the ocean here.

  3. I immediately thought of you up there in Maine when I saw that report on the news...I too wanted to grab my family and hide inside even though I am 45min from any coast line and here in Oregon we aren't usually affected by the heart goes out to the families who lost loved ones though )~:
