We are making some preparations today just in case. Preparing for the worst, hoping for the best. Heading to our marina to move our boat and trailer to higher ground. Then we have to stock up on a few emergency items. We are getting a Noreaster (sp?) and are supposed to get 5" of rain in the next day or so, and that's before the hurricane. Jon's mom lives in an area southeast of us on the water near the Chesapeake Bay. This is the last thing she needs right now, with his dads memorial service planned for Monday.
Thinking of WaltVB and Hatteras and others in the area. Stay safe!
when we moved to florida in the spring of 2010, lots of our friends and family were very concerned with our choice due to the hurricanes.
instead of them worrying, we are the ones that worry lots....blizzards..storms..hurricanes have battered the east coast/new england over the past few years.
We prepped the yard and covered the pool yesterday during a break in the rain (it's been raining off and on for about the last 10 days). Went to the liquor store for essential supplies and are ready for that Nor'easter Tracey is talking about and Joaquin in the wings. Good news is the latest update says the storm is beginning to track a bit more to the East. Bad news is Jim Cantore was spotted in Virginia Beach . Everybody stay safe!

We bought lots of gas for the generator and went to the store to stock up on provisions. When hurricane Isabel came through years ago, we didn't have power for two weeks. I purchased foods that can be cooked on the outdoor grill, if necessary. As Walt and Tracey said, it has been raining here for days on end, and we are supposed to get the Noreaster tomorrow. We are all hoping and praying that the hurricane goes far east of the coast line. Stay safe, Walt and Tracey!
