This is how pretty the beach looks today. It's deceptive isn't it. Hard to believe that there is a monster of unprecedented porportions bearing down on us. Even hard line old timer Floridians are getting nervous. As well they should.
We are preparing to do whatever we need to do. The house is buttoned down as well as it can be and we are packing today, anticipating evacuation.
This is a fast moving storm which is good news because once it lands it will be gone within less than 24 hours. So we will know what chaos it left in it's wake rather soon.
We expect power outages of course, normal with any big storm regardless of where a person lives. So even if we can immediately afterward return home, I won't be able to get online and once the charges run out on our phones, we will apparently be off grid. It'll be like the 1960's again! Retro flashbacks!
Keep a good thought for everyone here in Florida if you will and honestly anyone anywhere in the path of this beast.
Sending hugs out to all of you, wherever you are.
Yup, this is me. Some people said, "Sam, you should write a Blog". "Well, there's a thought", I thought to myself. And so here it is.
