As I pen this, Gaston is slamming South Carolina~
Hoping that all friends will be safe in the path of this hurricane~
Hoping to hear from our poets along the Carolina's and all up the Eastern coast line ... safe ... be safe~

And the horror brewing by the name of Frances is a monster that appears to be heading Florida's way~
Folks ... if ever we need your prayers ... this is the time !!!

This is a BIG, BIG one ... and it already has me nervously anxious~

Prepared ? ... oh sure, to the extent we can prepare ... but dreading each update !

Okay, yes...I love the hurricanes, and tornados.  I am completely fascinated by them.  I am an odd bird.  

This next one has me on edge...

Stay tuned its going to be a rough labor day weekend for some of us in Florida I think.

I agree with Marge.  I have this sick feeling in the pit of my stomach about Frances.  I've had nervous energy all weekend, partly because of Gaston that came to see us, but mainly because of what's coming up behind him.  I've been in my nesting stage, as hubby calls it.  Getting everything in order in case we have to leave.  You can never be too prepared.  We have a family rule here - anything greater than a high category 2, we evacuate.  After feeling Hugo skirt by us a few years ago I don't want to be around with anything bigger than he was.

PDV, that statement would hold true if you were ANYWHERE in Florida! Actually, I can't remember so many hurricanes and storms coming at us at one time until you moved here...thanks a lot!!!!

Shall I move to my 'second' choice of Michigan? Would that mean they would have tornadoes?


sigh...I'm a jinx...unwanted in 51 states...the drought ended in AZ when I left there....I just don't belong anywhere..I'm a woman without a country...sigh....

Laughing at Poet D....

Us South Carolinians are watching Frances
like a hawk....all we can do is prepare and
see what comes of it......Gaston gave us
some wind and rain...some power outages,
a few trees down...overall fairly forgiving.

This next one might be a little different.

First, she's heading right for me...

Then, she's veered more north...

NOW? She's back aimed closer to me...

I think Frances is jealous and thinks I've got the hots for her man! I swear! Gaston and I are just FRIENDS!!!!

Dear Marge:

Praying daily for you and all your family, plus any others in the path of the storm. I hope it veers away from your area and goes out to sea! They are terrifying!  You are very brave to stay there.  

Love
Betty Lou

The Monstercane continues to grow and the predicted path to landfall is frightening for so many of us~

Our family members, and Bill and I, have made evacuation plans if Frances continues in the path towards us.  We are only 20 miles inland, just East of Daytona Beach ... so we will most likely be on the move by Friday morning, as we continue tracking this storm.

Will be in touch when we can~
Keep us all in prayer, as we do all of you~

Margie...stay safe, and surely hope all our prayers are heard and Francis takes a turn for the wide open ocean.  Take good care.

Marge, usually I'd say, hang in there,
but this time? maybe just get outta there and take a mini-vacation if you can!

You are ALL in my thoughts.  PdV...Kansas is good...if you like grasshoppers.  At least they don't devour you like the 'gators.
