please pardon this interruption as Hurricane Matthew comes hammering through. Everything will be topsy turvy for 24 hours and then you can resume all normal activities.
Thankfully and luckily for us, this time we were a little far south and Matthew decided to leave us well alone. Insert huge sigh of relief. But since we were expected to get clobbered with some pretty intense tropical storm force winds we secured the house, bought in everything, and I mean EVERYTHING from outside and decided to take heed of the evacuation orders and get out of dodge. One little wobble and we were in the direct path of a cat 4 storm. No thanks, been there done that.
I grabbed all the insurance polices and the girls and we headed out.
Our drive was like this most of the time
|Desolate, wet and grey.|
Later the same day
|our view from our room. even the palm trees aren't moving|
|we went for a quick walk|
|the peanut found her boat|
|all the boats we inland to keep them safe...they were safe.|
We drove home this morning and saw a few trees down close to the house, small ones but no flooding which is unheard of around here.
Sadly this is what we are now waiting for
|go home Matthew, you are drunk!|
I can't even think about it. I just can't.
I did take Lily with me, I swear but she was in the room doing her homework most of the day until she konked out, face first, onto the bed and slept through everything that was going on, everything.
