Safe, Sound, and Wet

As we write this, Hurricane Dorian is pulling away from us taking its wind, rain, and storm surge leaving us safe, sound and wet.

After taking days to arrive, Dorian was a fairly fast hurricane lasting about a day and a half. He left a ton of damage in his wake, including three big trees down in our neighborhood, but we are happy to report that we are safe, sound, and wet. Hu-Dad said this should be a scratch and sniff post so that all our readers enjoyed the full experience.

Many people on the coast have lost their homes and others are without power. We can’t complain, though, because our house is secure and we never lost power or even internet (at least as of the time Hu-Dad is writing this post). Tomorrow, the cleanup begins and our humans will be busy helping neighbors and cleaning up our own yard.

That’s a lot of cleanup.

P.S. – We continue to think of those still battling this storm and all of the people who have lost so much to it. Stay safe, be smart, and see you on the backside.

    Mom’n Ebby say: So glad to hear your “soggy doggies” made it through the storm without anything bad happening, and that everyone is okay. Hope the clean-up goes well, and praise to the Lord for seeing you through, Prayers for all those who DID suffer loss and/or damage.
