We are in hurricane warning mode again...maybe it's time to build an underground bunker?

Sharon we have our eyes on this one.  It looks ominous.  I hope you are safe.  And a waterproof bunker, fully stocked, may be the answer.

believe in what your heart feels...

If you could build an underground bunker, wouldn't that be called a basement?  Head to high ground, m'dear...

in fact, I've room for you here!

Everyone in Wilma's path, which looks like anyone in the Florida Keys, but who knows with these monster storms, please please take care and head inland.

This one is nothing to fool with..
they/CNN are saying it is the strongest storm in record history.

I do hope all our Florida members and others in Wilma's path will keep us informed as to their safety the next few days.

You will all be in our thoughts and prayers.

Stay safe, my friends....

Though I usually dread the holidays, I am SO ready for the end of this hurricane season I wish I could compress time... and make the end of November and its promised respite be NOW.

Latest update: put up the hurricane shutters, buy your water, flashlight batteries, etc. and hunker down.

I've been asked to go to the Emergency Operations Center for our county again but this year, I've got Twin Duty - mom and dad are both working on Saturday which leaves Grandma Sharon babysitting the twins. Nothing comes between me and my twin-grandbabies!

And Karen I have thought about starting up a Refrigerator Store there! I'd be a millionaire in a month!

If it doesn't rain ~ it pours! Torrentially!
I'm praying fervently lika an angel on the road to hell, that Wilma loses momentum and swings out into the Alantic!

Meteorologists say that hurricane season lasts until the end of November!?! My thoughts and prayers are with everyone in this hurricane's path! Big time!

Jeeeeeeeeeeeeeez.

I was kidding earlier, but to all my Florida friends?

We do have room, and plenty of air mattresses and M.R.E.'s.

Please get outta there.

Mike? Exactly MY thoughts...what have I done? Last night one of the buildings at our plant burned down, we had torrential rain all day (it was BAD) and a small plane crashed into a building about a mile from where I work...

Is there someone who could 'exorcise' me? I think my head may be turning around and around and I'll be spitting green slime any minute!!

Stay safe...this one's gonna be a bad one...

Alas, I had to stop performing exorcisms.

The herds of swine were getting costly and the P.E.T.A. people were getting a bit testy.



If hugs can keep ya safe, I send you all kjillions...

Just for the record, it's pretty calm here in Phoenix. Ya' know you guys are scaring the crap out of me. You gotta stop this, okay?

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

Sigh...oh well. Won't be long til this hurricane season is over and we won't have to worry about it until JUNE!
