Good Luck Hawkeye! (10 days now since hearing from her, she usually posts every day!)

Still no news from Hawkeye after the catostrophic hurricane, Ian made landfall earlier this week in Hawkeye's vicinity: Hawkeye, if you are able to read this, know you are in our thoughts and prayers not just from me but the readers of TBW too. Take care dear lady!
