It's a busy time for us as we try and prepare for the worst that Hurricane Dean could bring our way. All the children and staff at Castel-Pere will be moved to the elementary school when the storm approaches. Food and cooking supplies are being moved there now as well as extra clothing and mattresses. Our medical personnel have prepared some First Aid kits for both LaMadonne and Castel-Pere and one of them will be with the children throughout the weekend. Animals and vehicles will be moved to the highest point of the property (the northern neighborhood). Anything of value will be moved up as high as we can... computers, printers, files and the like. We already have potable water ready for the two or three days of the storm but the toilet facilities will be rustic, to say the least. The satellite dish and the solar panels will be secured as much as possible and we are studying what to do with the wind turbine. The next time you hear from me will be after the storm. Keep us in your prayers.
