Hurricane preparations

We’ve begun the dance to the tune of “Here I go again”. Katrina left us out of power about 6-8 hours, as did Rita, but we were extremely lucky. The television stations advise to be ready for at least several days without power. DH will ride out the storm in the hospital, his surgeon assures us.

Our next door neighbor and his son came over last night and moved our cast aluminum patio table and chairs to the garage. (I had already managed the umbrella and the wind chimes. Don’t laugh: the wind chimes are about 4 feet long!) I haven’t boarded up the windows as they do on the coast, nor have I taped. On the other hand, there are no mature trees in the subdivision, and only the lake behind me, so much less to fly at the house. Oh, and knitting has been selected. In other words, I’m ready.

I will post again as soon as I have power.

On a cheerful note, you haven’t been ignored until you have been ignored by a cat.

    Happy birthday slightly late, and best wishes with the hurricane and for your hubby’s speedy recovery.

    Hope all is well – you’re being ignored specifically by a SIAMESE cat!
