When it looked like Florence was headed in our direction I got lots of comments from y'all wondering about how we're doing with his hurricane thing happening right next door. I have to say we were being quite nonchalant about it. It would have been our fourth since we moved here if it had gotten this far up the Bay.
We stocked up on water-just in case. Our well doesn't work if there is no electricity so bottled water is a must. The shelves in all the stores were pretty empty by Wednesday.
People right on the water took no chances. This is one of the few remaining beachfront houses that didn't get destroyed when Isabel came through in 2003. I love this little house. It reminds me of the way they all were back when we were kids. Now all the houses that line the water are all pretty much modern McMansions.
The really not so funny thing is that two weeks ago we had the tree people out to talk about cutting down all those huge trees from around the house. After that big one fell in the back last month, we knew it was time to do something before we had a tragedy. They were supposed to come do the job last Thursday but since The Mister decided to do the kitty sitting, we called and had the job postponed. It would have been more than upsetting if this had ended up being "the big one". I am more than happy to have dodged this bullet but it's a very muted yay. Somewhere somebody is not going to be so lucky. Stay safe y'all.
I’m so glad it won’t hit you but I DO feel for everyone affected. I know you’ll take care of those trees ASAP now. :-)ReplyDelete
You have been on my mind as we watch the progression of Florence. I can't imagine how scary that would be!ReplyDelete
We have things in order here, just in case, too.ReplyDelete
It never hurts to be prepared! I'm glad it is less serious than first thought but it is still going to mess with lots of lives! You're right, those trees need to be addressed!
I have been thinking of you two. I strongly believe in "just in case". xoxoReplyDelete
Glad it's not headed your direction, but we are concerned about several friends who live in the Carolinas. Seems like the weather is going crazy, doesn't it?ReplyDelete
Phew. Glad you are safely tucked in!!!!! Stay safe and alert Just in case!ReplyDelete
Stay safe and tucked in tight just in case. Always good to be prepared. Take good care.ReplyDelete
Glad you're safe. I always feel very fortunate that we don't live in an area with much extreme weather.ReplyDelete
We're in the same boat down here in VA. Slightly disappointed we missed out on the excitement (and a little guilty for feeling that way) but VERY glad we did.ReplyDelete
