St. Lucia vacation gone wrong!

St. Lucia vacation

Tomas arrives in St. Lucia

The aftermath of Tomas

So here is the story...........my DH sister and her husband decide to go on holiday to St' Lucia last Sunday, they had a wonderful week until this past week end when Tomas decided to visit their island retreat. His sister said the eye of the storm decided to stall just off the island and they received 10 hours of rain. St. Lucia is all mountains and the flooding was terrible. They could not leave their rooms because of all the dangers including flying glass. They were suppose to come home on Sunday. They are still there, but are hoping to get a small boat to Barbados and a flight home. The runway in St. Lucia is damaged and flights can't come out. Talk about a vacation from hell! She said the first day was kind of exciting but after a few days of not being able to go anywhere or do anything boredom settled in.
You just never know what life is going to bring you. We are just thankful they are safe and that they will be home soon.  They may want to hustle, the news says there is another hurricane headed there way. Say a prayer for them, PLEASE! I will let you know when they are home safe and sound.

Happiest when stitching~

I'll add my prayers for their safe return home. What a shame their vacation ended that way. I'm glad that they are both alright.
