Everything was secured around the house and then Hu-Dad suggested we do one final part of hurricane prep… and it involved us.
Late Monday afternoon and the deck and pool furniture was secured. Everything the wind could move was put away. Hu-Dad declared us as prepared as we could be for Isaias, but there was one final step in our hurricane prep. Yes, the Hu-Dad issued the final Emergency Procedure Order… Go now or hold it until the storm is over.
Our food rations are also reduced under the “what goes in must come out” theory. Can you believe the horror?
By the time you read this, the storm should be over, the sun should be coming out, and things should be getting back to normal. And that means we should get extra food to make up for those reduced rations.
UPDATE: Tuesday morning, 6 a.m. We are safe and fine. Skies are clear. Minor flooding damage, but no real harm. Thinking of everyone else dealing with Isaias.
