With final preparations complete, we can only wait for the slowly incoming hurricane, often described as being stalked by a turtle.
So many natural disasters like earthquakes, tornadoes, flash floods, mudslides, and tsunamis are sudden in their attack. They arrive with little warning and you deal with them as best you can. Hurricanes, however, creep toward you, turn slowly, and inch along. That is why they are so aptly described as being stalked by a turtle.
Yesterday’s weather was beautiful—only light clouds, lots of sunshine, and light breezes. That will change rapidly this afternoon. As this post was being written, a final stay/go decision had not been made. We are fully prepared to do either and will make that decision early Wednesday. Either way, though, posting for the next couple of days will be quite difficult. We will be back online as soon as we can.
P.S. – Continued good thoughts to everyone in the path. Stay safe, be smart, and see you on the backside.
