Heeeeeeere she comes!

Hanna is about 24 hours away.  They've already cancelled schools in our 3 coastal counties - even UNCW is closed on Friday.

Looking at the radar it looks like the EYE will come in right over Wilmington, Hurricane Central.

Mr Man has the trampoline upside down; we'll take in the other stuff tonight like flags, plants, etc.  It will be pool clean up day on Sunday - I'm sure it will get a lot of debris and bugs.

She's just a tropical storm now....that's good.  No more than a big bag of wind...that's easy.  It's the rain that I'm worried about.  My roof is leaking just a bit.  Hmmmmm, better buy some buckets eh?

But LOOOOOOK at I-K-E !!

Ike rhymes with YIKE! 

If he keeps up the way he's going, I'M GOING.  He's a Cat 4 now way out there...if he comes in here at a Cat 4 or more - you'll be seeing my tail lights.

Lisa move over - I'm coming to Tenn!!

OK, so before I leave work I should make sure all the electronics are safe in case the window breaks and the rain comes in.....can you say trash bags??

Tah tah for now.....

Some scary stuff!!!!
Remember that I have family in your town...we always worry about the storms going through there. Oh speaking of family.....
Your Miss T is in middle school now, right?
I found out the names of the schools that my nephews go to (one is in high school and the other is elementary school) so I don't think they are in the same school as your Miss T.
I'll let you know if you want.
Big hugs, stay safe and DRY !
