Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas any more.
We never were actually in Kansas, but we’re not in Iowa either. One of the things we don’t have a lot of in the Midwest are hurricanes. I lived in Cedar Rapids during the devastating flood of 2008 when we had 450 city blocks underwater.
I lived on the West coast when we had a Tsunami warning and watched the ocean rise in 35 foot swells.
Tonight, Tom (see Joe Series – The End ) posted a comment to watch out for Hurricane Don. A definite disadvantage to watching very little, and mostly only prerecorded TV, is that things are often over before I know about it. Usually that just means there was a special I might have liked to see, but this time, it has a more direct application. Thanks, Tom! I guess I’d better watch the News Mix live a little more often.
Interestingly, Tom’s comment came on the heals of news that we’re moving to Wharton on Friday or Saturday. We’re already directly in the projected path, but moving to Wharton would put us about 45 miles from the coast. Hmm…
Time to Batten Down the Hatches! I left out hurricanes when I was writing about the weather the other day. There are some things you can plan and prepare for, but we don’t have much we can batten down. With a fried converter, we may not be able to move Friday – anywhere (the new part is supposed to be here Friday or Saturday). I would consider moving away from the storm for a day if it seemed warranted, but right now our rolling home doesn’t really roll.
You, my friend, are a victim of disorganized thinking. You are under the unfortunate impression that just because you run away you have no courage; you’re confusing courage with wisdom.
If I don’t post for a day or two, you might look up and see if there’s a 32 foot Mirada sailing over your house!
We do certainly need the rain.
