Gratitude. That is how I am feeling right now. Six years ago I moved from the panhandle of FL back to South Central AL because of hurricanes. And, as I write, the first one since that move is coming ashore on the gulf coast. It is an interesting feeling when you are praying that it doesn’t hit you but you are also praying that it doesn’t hit anyone else either. And all the time you know that one of your prayers will not be answered the way you want. So, as you pray, you prepare.
Even Stubby was seeking shelter before the storm. And I don’t think he was happy to be found out
The deck was cleared, except for the chairs and swing. I figured we would move them as the storm began to pick up steam in our area.
I put most of the deck things inside this gazebo which is located between the two buildings. Can you see who is also stored in there?
And once again she does not appear happy to have been found.
I even put the rain gauge in a place where I thought the wind wouldn’t move it but the rain would come down there. So now we were ready.
And then I looked to the sky. Can you see it? It is blue, bright blue. And it stayed that way all day. Oh, there were periodic clouds that flew by but then the blue and sun returned.
So, am I putting things back out tomorrow? Well, no. I have learned that the weather, and especially hurricanes, can cause problems, even after they make landfall so we will wait a day or two before putting things back together.
Meanwhile, I have things to do in the studio. Oh, yes I do!
