getting ready for a hurricane

if you dont hear from me for a couple of days we may be out of
internet or power

the hurricane may come our way up the coast so we are getting ready

water check
flashlights with batteries  check
gotta run and get some things like bread and milk
and cat food

the cats will be wandering around and hiding under the bed
at the windy noises and rain on the shed tin roof
we have already had huge branches of trees fall in the back
of the house
we didnt know what it was the other night
when I was putting the bird feeders in and gathering up things
I found a huge about 8 inches around by 6 feet branch
near the shed in back
and others a little smaller nearby

these guys I am hoping will not stress
as we weather the storm
times like this I wish I had a treadle
to sew away my stress

the screen porch is full
with my mums and plant containers and anything that could fly
hoping that this goes out to sea
then we will just deal with the water
another fun issue
hope all in the wake of the hurricane are safe and sound
hope to have some hand projects done if I can see to do them

stay safe my friends.....
hope to see you soon......

DH went out to get gas for our gnerator yesterday and extra water; today food that can be heated on our camping stove...and so we are hoping against hope that Joaquin goes out to sea as DH's appointment is tuesday for his testing...hugs, Julierose

Stay safe. We have tornadoes and you have hurricanes. There is bad weather in every part of the country. Do some hand stitching or bindings while you wait it out.Chris said...

Keep safe!

We are stocked up on food and water - already have a huge farm generator (fuel on site). I have hand sewing set up on the side should the power go. Be safe!!
