This hurricane is gonna make me nuts.  But, we got this.  Back checking with 3 brothers and making sure they have what they need, where they go and who's going where. Check list, checked...rechecked....back checked.  Now we wait and watch.  Either way initial landfall is going to be brutal for 2.  But both are very skilled, and very smart in South Florida.   Shelter is very close.   Time to roll the dice....and wait...

Eyes was in last night.  Not sure what part of Florida he is in.  But I am sure he has his big stick all set.  I will take a earthquake over a cat 4 or 5 anytime.

He is in Port Charlotte. Got a cousin in Sarasota, brother in Orlando, port St Lucy brother evacuating north....to where, idk yet.  Aunt in Jacksonville.  My nerves are about spent.  This is insane.  We all will text short check on texts.  But if and when the towers go down. Ugh, ya wait... you just gotta hope n pray at this point...and carry on.

Good morning from the river.  In a few I will walk my diva princess pup o she can suvey her territory. But for now, its coffee time.  First off he Florida hurricane.  All 3 brothers made it thru with zero damage. The eye went just west of Port Charlotte brother, he is rather lucky.  It was a cat 2 by then.  Not  problem did he ave, didn't even lose power.  My Aunt in Jacksonville, well her condo building got swamped.  The bulkhead busted creating flooding in her buildings garage and first floor.  She is above that.   It is a good thing she is in N.C. now. So that's that.  What a ht mess that was, doesn't make me want to run to Florida and live though.
Other then that, its been ok. Spent 2 days trying to get permits in Chicago.   And that's all I have to say about that. Can't say nuffin nice, don't say anything kinda deal.
Then theres that Equifax breach.  :cursing: and of course me my I got affected.  :cursing: :cursing: :cursing:.  I am in the process of reporting freezing and getting the I.D. theft wall up best I can do.  That wall will be in place for the rest of my life they have said.   Have mercy adulting is not for sissy.
But it's a new day, I have some wood burning to do, some pears to put up and some beading to get done.
The river is quiet now. Oh himself better rise and shine soon. We have a little nuthatch bird whom isn't very happy at the bird feeder.
So the day begins...

Busy busy busy I have been.  It's canning season, I have put up massive quantity and I only have my jams left to do.  Dealt with a minor flood last weekend. Kissed the axles on the camper. Not so much fun. Mornings ate spent with my mother in law.  I do her breakfast and meds.  On Friday's I take her to her hair appointment. Leaving in 20 minutes.  I can't wait til things slow down..  I am stretched a bit to far...
Cabin is being closed up for winter. Water goes off Nov 1.  Been dealing with that.  Sigh, I sure wish I could be in more...

Dawn has just cracked open..coffee is on, my pup is resting at my feet.  We have no breeze just yet.  That's ok.  I should open the blinds and see what last week's water event did.  I know we got about a foot of water.
I have to make soup to pass for a gathering tonight.  I think there will be 5 of us bringing a crock pot each. Could be more.
Was told last night it's dock day.  So that's removal of4 or 5 docks, walkways and boats.  No problem. We have this weekend and next before water gets shut off. A ceiling and wall scrub down is my job today.
I brought the beginnings of my costume here.  I am gonna jazz it up .  It's a circa 1950 style dress full of rule, I am going to glue all kinds of woodland floral on it to become an elf, lol. A good project for tomorrow's rains.  So this year no scarey stuff. 
Well with that I should get moving...
Have a nice day.

Sound like you will be needing to move the camper to higher ground for the winter.   I take it Eyes is safe and dry after all the hurricane to date.

We did that last week, good thing to.
Eyes did very well.  No damage at all and didn't lose power.   All good for him.

Was thinking he has traveled all over the U.S. and most parts of the world.  Then to buy a house in a hurricane state.  But what the hell I live in a state with volcanoes and earthquakes.   :lol: :lol:
