Tropical Storm

Sunday, September 04, 2011

Well the outer bans of what it left of tropical storm Lee has now reached the SW corner of Georgia.
It's so dark I'm having to turn on lights. I can hear a little thunder in the back ground and there are some tornado warnings out, so won't be staying on the computer long.
I'm prepared (comes from growing up in Florida)
Supper has been cooking all day in the crock pot
we have plenty of water and batteries, just in case we loose power and plenty of food that does not need cooking. I made sure we had lots of fruits this time. No junk.
Not that we are expecting it to get bad, it's just living in the country sometimes it does not take much for the power to go.
I did my cardio this morning and am going to do some strength training this eve.

Oh some good news, Ms Kitty let me pet her this morning for the first time. Not for long but she didn't run from me. Yeah!!!
Yikes thunder getting a little louder so I'll see y'all later

    Hope all goes well with the storm coming through! Thanks for stopping by my page with an update! It should really help your drought for sure. I know how living in the country was-did it for 18 years in OH. One thing I hated was when the electric goes out (and we didn't have a generator)-so does the water pump-so no toilets! emoticon Yes, living in FL does help you to learn to prepare! Glad Miss Kitty is coming around!
    Take care and be safe! emoticon

    Be safe, Jean. Please keep us posted as to how you are, if you are able to get online. Good job on laying in healthy food for any power outage.
    Yeah, Ms. Kitty! She is learning to trust you.

    I grew up on Nova Scotia, so can relate to the tropical storms and hurricanes. I remember one year coming home from camping, and the high water levels had broken a dam, which washed out the street I had to go along to get to work. I had a long detour for almost a year before it was finally fixed.

    I had thought, though, living in Southern Ontario, that I was well away from that kind of storm. Yesterday, on our way home from seeing a play in Stratford, we stopped at the farmer's market in St. Jacobs Ontario, north-west of London. The crowds were very big, and I stayed for only about an hour. Imagine my surprise this morning to see pictures on the news of the market after it was hit yesterday afternoon by winds and heavy rains. No tornado, but roofs were blown off buildings, canvas display spaces were demolished and the produce was all over the place! If we had been there an hour later, we could have been in the middle of it.

    Stay safe; hopefully Lee will miss you. Enjoy the rest of the week-end.

    Hope the weather dosen't get too bad for you. I live in western Arkansas and I wish we were getting some of the rain. We have had the hottest, driest summer. Lisa emoticon
