GULF SHORES, Ala. - Sgt. Skip Callaway knew the streets would look like a green snowfall, and that roofs would come off and trees would blow down. He was even prepared to find death the morning after Hurricane Ivan hit his beachfront town. But standing as he was yesterday, at the intersection of Route 59 and Zoo Drive, Callaway still found it hard to contemplate just how much change a storm like Ivan brings. To his right was a crumpled restaurant, one of hundreds of damaged businesses in town.

GULF SHORES, Ala. - Joel Nichols slogged through 5 feet of water to see what Hurricane Ivan had done to his home. It wasn't a pretty sight. Pushing his bicycle over the sugary sand of the Alabama coast - 4 feet deep in spots over what a few days earlier had been a five-lane main drag through town - Nichols stepped into the surreal world of Ivan's aftermath. Beach rentals were dumped from their pillars, tumbled on their sides. Air conditioners sat tossed around like dice on some titanic craps table.

How I long to hold her and love her. Can anyone help?To a 2-year-old child -- who may not see Grandma all that often -- Grandma is nothing more than a stranger.If you keep that in mind, it's easier to understand the fact that Grandma is only going to get what she wants if her granddaughter gets what she needs -- the reassurance that Grandma's presence doesn't mean the disappearance of Mom and Dad."
