Tonight, Tonight . . .

We may only have power tonight . . .

We’re ready for the storm. The last load of laundry is in the washer right now. Our bathtub is full of water. [I’m waiting to do the one in the boys’ bathroom until I am 100% positive the Bear is asleep. Apparently he did not have a good night last night.] M has searched for every available candle and flashlight in our house & found them. We have a hurricane lamp that is full of oil.

We’re ready.

But I’m bored.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m still paranoid. But like I said last year, there’s nothing like knowing a category 5 storm is bearing down on you. M is convinced we’ll lose power for longer than a few seconds this time because this storm has nowhere to go. It has to come inland. And the last time I looked at The Weather Channel, they had the eye going over just north of where we live.

I should probably not be as bored as I am. I can tell you my head hurts a lot more this time around. A LOT. I was supposed to do a walk this morning and I could barely get out of bed. Because this is already messing with my head, M is seriously worried about how I will react if the eye comes pretty much over us. To be honest, I’m worried about that, too. But not enough to panic.

If I don’t blog for a few days, it’s because we’re without power.

East Coasters, how are your preparations going? Good luck with everything!  Stay safe!

  1. Not to take anything away from a Hurricane, but this isn’t a Cat 5, it’s a Cat 1. Been 5 years since we had a Cat 5 hurricane in the Atlantic (Felix and Dean in 2007).

    1. I’m well aware of that. But this all is just mindless to me right now. Having gone through the pandemonium of having Isabel bear down on Hampton Roads in 2003, I mostly get annoyed with the people freaking out.

      Does it suck? God, yes. Am I worried? Only for the boys’ sake. Our house is soundly built. We aren’t in an area prone to flooding, and we have a back up on our pumps. I just feel unaffected by the wigging out everyone seems to be doing.
