Looks like we might be getting wet this week.
Mick has a weather map posted of the predicted path.
I'm almost one hundred miles south of him, which also
puts me in that ugly northeast quadrant of the storm
which has the highest winds and the most twisters.
They're only expecting a Category 1 storm, though, which
puts the winds at 74 mph and a bit higher. Not really that
big a deal unless you have lots of tall trees around your house
like Mick does. (Fingers crossed for you, friend.)
I have four very large oak trees in my yard.
Three of which curl over my roof. That could be an oops.
There isn't much to do except stock up on necessities like
canned goods and bottled water. And clear the yard of
anything that might become a projectile in the wind.
It's all a guessing game with a little bit of technology thrown in.
We won't really know until it gets here. Or doesn't.
I probably won't be posting much until I see what's what.
And, I really really really hate that damned phrase the
weather people love to use to death... hunker down.
Stop it already.
UPDATE: Mick just did an 8 pm weather update.
Looks like we'll be fine this time. Probably.
