This last week has been a roller coaster ride.
We’ve been on hurricane watch.
Originally, it wasn’t coming our way. The islands of Cuba, Haiti and the
Bahamas were right in the eye of the storm. They were all hit. The devastation seen on television is frightening for us waiting for news of what will happen next.
We were advised to prepare with supplies of water, flash lights, batteries,
non-perishable can foods, a battery powered radio and a plastic bag with important papers.
I rode out the storm ‘Hurricane Charlie’ in 2004. One of my daughters lost her home in that one. We lost electricity and water for a week. Roads were blocked by fallen trees and debris. We had no air conditioning, no stove (electric), no water (forced bathing in our pool) and friends crashing at our place because we were slightly safer from the more severe areas.
The best predictions can’t say which way the storm is going to head.
Although it’s heading to hit the east coast of Florida, the storm surges, high winds and torrential rains will still effect me here where I live on the west coast. In addition, we have family and friends who live on the east coast in the area where the storm is supposed to hit.
I’m sure I will lose internet service. Plus, my mind isn’t in a writing mode.
Once, all is back to normal I will be back.
Stay Safe … Stay Happy … Stay in Love …
