The season is upon us to rush out to the store to buy up bottled water and batteries for our flashlights. I know once the Weather Channel starts filming down to our south in Cape Hatteras the storm is coming! I wonder if they just rent a house down there for the season for their quick trips filming the vacationers soaking up the sun and the locals saying that they are preparing and staying put.
Tonight I will be heading home to take down the patio umbrellas,stack the chairs and fold up Dora’s table and chairs (although if she blew away I wouldn’t be too sad) ,take in the potted plants. I will also be frustrated at myself for not taking care of those crooked trees and the ones with the big, long, dead limbs on them. Ahhh, the list of should, coulda, woulda.
Living below sea level in Norfolk and the surrounding area is an area of concern. I am attaching a flood link that will let you check out your area.http://www.norfolk.gov/emergency/Interactive_Hurricane_Maps.asp Let’s hope that Irene will be kind to us Hampton Roads!
