Anyone else in the path of Michael? Looks like the Panhandle of Florida is really going to get slammed hard (though the news loves to make every hurricane the "big one").

This caught me by surprise, checked the weather report on the weekend and it said possibility of rain on Thursday. Then yesterday I realized Georgia and Florida had declared a State of Emergency as a big hurricane is going to slam us tonight!

Am busy filling water containers, doing dishes and charging batteries since we will probably lose power for several days and be cut off by downed trees for a day or two. Thankfully I don't need anything from the store.

Stay safe, stay vigilant...I suppose one could say, you've been prepping for this...!

Thanks! One upside is that at this time of year the temperatures are mild so there are no worries about heating/cooling.

I actually rather like it when the roads are closed and I know the hundreds of acres around me are deserted, but after 3 days without power I want the Internet back again! Talk radio and Coast to Coast are entertaining but it just isn't the same.
 
What's that smell? I think this tiny ad may have stepped in something.
