nothing stupid here.  i am pretty close to tar river, the river that likes to flood, but the river was 4 feet below ave. before isabelle hit and ground saturation was low, but so far nothing so so bad.  we do have flooding, but my apt. is on the second floor but a mustang in my neighborhood, actually 15 feet from my apt, had a tree fall on it...ouch...so hopefully i wont wake up to a tree in my window or something, but it had pretty much died down for now...

Happy to see you check in, eor.

But watch those tides and belated storm surges, k?

Hugs...and during times like these?

Happy hugs to you.

last night...I went walking in the hurricane. it sounded like people were screaming and the road was flooded. I kept thinking that people were after me, but no. I didn't get the freakishly calm eye.

so..
who has their storm stories?

the hurricane ripped up my sunflowers...that was about the worst damage.

I love the hurricanes. I was born in one and I have lived through Andrew (Florida) and Fran and Floyd and um yeah alot that I cant remember because they werent big. I love them. While every one else is freaking out I enjoy it. I mean there is really nothing anyone can do to stop it, and if you are prepared then stop freaking out (thats my theory) Anyways, Isabelle was ok, no power outages, no trees down, no flooding, but the little town next to us still has no power. SO...anyways that was pointless rambling, but I got excited, so I just rambled.

Isabel was very hyped up. It was strange for a hurricane as it went right inland instead of hugging the shore, but for power, she packed a good punch, but no big wallops. A few did die from fallen trees and snapped power lines here and there, but New Jersey was pretty much clear. However, some small tordaoes came around New Jersey this morning. No deaths, I think, but thousands of outages and damaged homes. I never thought that tornadoes ever came in my state. I guess Mother Nature wanted to spice things up, lollz
