In her own words 

BEING THERE AFTER MOTHER NATURE MOVES ON

  When Mother Nature is in a bad mood, nothing is sacred, no one is safe. And nowhere is spared. With unnatural strength and speed, her fury is unleashed, turning homes into havoc, complete communities into kindling, even faith into questioning. It happens over...

ONE MONTH MARKING TWO 20YR MILESTONES
