I was in the middle of writing that last post, sitting in my classroom after school, when out of nowhere a huge tropical wind and rainstorm whipped up, knocking down trees, smashing a car on campus, bringing down branches everywhere, and putting out the electricity (a tree fell on the wires leading to the generator). Many of my students were hysterical, as they tried to call their parents and couldn't get through. These things bring back memories of the earthquake that are all too fresh.

If our campus is a mess, you can imagine what tent cities all over this city must look like. Please pray for the people of Port-au-Prince.

My goodness -- what timing.

Yes, it's impossible to imagine what such a storm would feel like in the tent cities...
