Update – Hurricane Dorian

Storm Flooding

Hurricane Dorian was a threat to the state of Florida. The intensity of the storm began  on August 24, 2019 and dissipated on September 12, 2019. The winds of 185 mph were the highest on record.

It was predicted to hit land on the East coast of Florida. Although I live on the West coast, the indications from weather channels warned that the effects of the storm could impact the entire state of Florida. Everyone was warned to prepare.

We were inundated with rain which caused major flooding in many areas. The extreme winds caused some damages too. 

However, the storm did its biggest damage to the Grand Bahamas and Abaco Islands before hitting our state. We were spared more severe results by divine providence.

Our compassion are kindness is being tested. We must find it in our hearts to help these people who are in great need after having lost everything that is just your basic needs. They have been changed forever by their losses including family, friends and neighbors. 

Below are agencies trying to help these people find a reason to exist once again. If you can give something to their help them, please do.

Thank you, Isadora

#Hurricane Matthew


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 …
