This is what is happening in our neck of the woods right now:
Even without a direct hit, we’re going to be feeling this one. Quite frankly, it’s scary looking. The department has already cancelled my husband’s day off on Friday, so I will be riding this one out with my 5 year-old. Good times. I’m just hoping he still gets Saturday because I have a feeling there’s going to be cleanup.
Around us, I think as long as our vinyl fence holds, our pool screen should be ok. If the fence goes, the pool screen will probably follow. We are putting up our hurricane shutters today, and basically wrapping everything up to get ready. I’m very glad I don’t live in the Bahamas right now, and everyone is super hopeful it still makes a turn away from making a landfall. No matter where it hits, the Southeastern coast is going to suffer some damage. I have friends that are located on the Florida beachside, and they are being evacuated. Luckily, I’m not quite that close.
If you are a praying person, please pray for everyone’s safety. We haven’t seen a storm like this hit the Eastern side of our country in a VERY long time.
