Weather or Not

I have been praying for Houston during their troubles. Now I have added Florida to the list. When will it stop?

As someone who lives in a state where hurricane has been known to hit, to me, storms are scary. Watching the Weather Channel, I wonder how we would react, sitting bumper to bumper in evacuation traffic. I feel sad for them, as your home and belongings are left behind. You wonder , if you come back, what you’ll come back to. Watching people call the Florida Attorney General and report price gauging makes me wonder, although I know the answer; don’t people have a conscience ? Taking advantage of people in the most stressful of situations is just downright wrong!

Keep the hurricane evacuees in your thoughts, and send some prayers or good thoughts their way!

For the rest of the nation, I would only wish more people would realize that Mother Nature isn’t fooling,

H&G Hawaii

So here I am sitting, humid wind blowing through the windows, and what am I watching? HG tv where they are trying to find homes for folks. Most of them have a 600k to 800k budget.

Uh, ok.

Have got to give them that, yes, it is paradise. I am getting to old- all I can see in their future is typhoons, tropical storms, hurricanes- whatever.

I appreciate Undisclosed,with our weather, and even with Hurricane Sandy in the recent past, well, it just seems a wee bit safer than an island in a big ocean.

What’s the old saying?

Nice place to visit, but I wouldn’t want to live there.

Just not into it

One of the down sides of taking vacation time on a Friday is when you have to work a Friday, well, your heart just isn’t in it.

To add insult to injury, there is no Nor’easter due or hurricane. It figures. I am here and not an Undisclosed.The skies are a vibrant blue.

Somehow, though, it has to be turned around into a good thing. I need to get some things done that I have been putting off-ok, that’s a good thing. The girls would love to get some woods based walking for a change of pace-second good thing. A chance to go through some older things and make bags for Goodwill, ok-that works,too.

**pushing my sleeves up to get ready**
Have a wonderful weekend!

 

 

 

Hurricane Sandy

I only had one niece.

Her name was Alexandra, and she passed away in September of 1997.

My two nephews here, Matt and Greg, used to call her Sandy.

I don’t think Greg remembers her that much, but Matt and I chatted about her the other day, and about how we missed her.

I am hoping “Sandy” will cut us some slack and send her namesake further up the coast, leaving Undisclosed in one piece.

**Fingers crossed**

Laying low before the storm

Today is a nice day. There’s a nice breeze going when you are by the bay. We put the air back on because the humidity is back.

The weather forecast is calling for a bad storm later, with winds and hail. We are going out now so the girls won’t go stir crazy later.

Just a good day to kick back and take it all in.

Isaac

Spending Sunday watching the weather channel and seeing the preparations for Tropical Storm Isaac, which is hitting Florida as I type this.

I remember the preparations for Hurricane Katrina. It is mind-boggling, watching the change in the weather and the extreme swings possible. You can only feel for the people in New Orleans, as I see on the weather station are in an alert status. Can those folks be going through issues thinking back to Katrina? I know if I had gone through it and survived, I’d probably be a basket case.

Sending my prayers up so everyone comes through this dance with Isaac as unscathed as possible.
