Well, this is the first hurricane of the east coast and boy is my head not happy! My MIL is just “business as usual” but my hubby and I went out and bought flashlights and batteries like all newbies around here. LOL We got the generator all fired up “just in case” along with putting up all the lawn stuff. We haven’t done anything like that since we lived in Okinawa and had typhoons! Those were fun though. We lived in cinder block (cement) houses, so I knew we were so safe. We would have “typhoon parties” where our friends would come over and we would have lots of food and watch movies and sleepovers. We hardly ever lost power over there, so it was lots of fun. Here….I guess it is a lot different. My husbands parents are used to it. They said usually it is mostly high winds, rain, flooding, and loss of power. They haven’t had a bad one for a while. She is forgetful now and can’t remember when the last one was. We went shopping today at the base and got groceries. She gets paranoid about running out of food so she is stocked up on all kinds of things. Bless her full little cupboards! They predict Earl to hit us around Thursday night, just north of us on the Outer Banks, about 45 minutes from where we live. That is if he lands right where they say….which we know how meteorologist are sooooo dang right on the money! LOL!
Stay tuned, I may even have pictures….if Earl lets me, he may not allow it! He may take my internet….he is such a bad boy!
