Re: Hurricane Dorian has eyes on Florida...

Wishing you all well.   We live in tornado alley and while that is never pleasant during the Spring/Summer months - at least we have a much briefer window of fear from the time of notification until it has passed.  I cannot imagine worrying about it for days and days.

 

On a side note a reporter was covering the crush of shoppers at a nearby grocery during an ice storm warning once - people were stocking up on MILK - milk?  during a power outage?   I'm saying go for the wine Woman Tongue

Prayers for all who will be affected, hoping it can be downgraded somehow. Hope people will be able to get the help they will need.

Come on up to Savannah.  We have been incredibly lucky with hurricanes so far.  Even though they have said we were in the path,  somehow, we dodge the worst part of the bullet.  Praise God !.

Thanks for the invite! To those who asked about purchases at Home Depot, Yes particle board previously used, or wood went out to sea with homes on the coast, or taking no chances this time and buying plywood. I wish we could afford the heavy alunimum pull down exterior window shutters that bolt down. 1962/1963 Hurricane Dora cat 1/2 really shut us down. Of course that was way back then. P.S. I also purchased on sale mulch and sand for sandbags we own. Mulch in case we dodge the bullet and I can finish the landscaping up front....or start over 😏 Plenty of pantry goods still on shelves here in grocery.

Re: Hurricane Dorian has eyes on Florida...

Hi all - we are in Miami and still don't know what is going on.  They keep changing their stories minute to minute.  It's an old story.

 

We suvived Hurricane Andrew (Cat 5_ and I hope we survive this one too.  We are as ready as we can be.  We have accordian shutters (just pull them together and lock them on all the doors and windows)...... A "whole house" generator, so when the power goes off, our power goes on 15 seconds later and everything is lit up again.  

 

I Just saw where it will hit West Palm Bch (but who knows).....Wherever it hits, we will get really bad weather for sure.

 

Keep us in your thoughts......
