|Gus, "I don't care what you do or what happens! The salad better be served, eh?"|
|Espresso, "Murderizing will not be cancelled this week!"|
|Gus, "Charlie, what's he on about? What's a hurricane? What do you mean you evacuated once before?"|
It almost sounds like the same old story - something big, wet, and extremely windy is fixin' to learn hoomins a lesson in La Florida. As you may remember, I evacuated once before, a few years back. It's not a pleasant adventure. Right now, my hoomins are getting ready to stay put. Of course, that's what they said back then. It feels like it was yesterday.
But we're set for everything we need to ride it out. At the moment, the landfall of the hurricane is predicted to be sometime late Wednesday or early Thursday morning. Then again, the prediction is not set in stone - it's more like a scribble on beach sand.
My hoomin says the anxiety is doing funny things to his stomach. It's not stasis, but more like the opposite of it.
We'll keep you posted!
PS: This is how things look now. The big blue blob is already massive and growing. It will eventually end up somewhere where the green arrow is pointing...
... this is how it's trying to get here, where the red arrow points. Notice the "2 AM Wed" mark and the letter M - for "major." That means winds over 110 miles per hour.
I remember when you evacuated last time. Hope everybun & the hoomins will be okay this time around.
... things are looking up a bit here. The track has changed significantly - heading mostly north and bypassing us. We'll see how that holds up.
That was not a fun trip back then. Worried about the buns making it through, about the car holding up, find gas. Today, the trip would be 10 to 16 hours as opposed to the 8 back then. Now we would have to trek to different place, a lot farther away - in an even older car. Sigh...
