From the devastation of natural disaster, we come now to celebrate the things Mother Nature cannot take from us. Our friends, our family, our community – those that rode out the storm alongside us, and held our hand (and sometimes a hammer) as we recover are just a few of the many blessings even a 1-in 100-year storm can’t wash away.
