This morning when I let Dixie out and I stood on the porch, I was greeted by a familiar sky. The sky of an approaching tropical system. It is unmistakable and you know when you see it. Tropical storm Hanna is inching her way towards our coast. Tropical storms are nothing new to us, so we make the usual storm preparations which include pulling up the boat, bringing in the yard and porch furniture, making sure the generator is in working order, making sure we have food and the pets have plenty of food..yada, yada, yada. Another preparation was to go to one of my favorite feral cat colonies and load them up with plenty of food. I hope they eat before the rain comes in and washes it away.
Looks like it is gonna be a very slow Friday here at work. Not too many people will be venturing out today, can't say I blame them. It is one of those good sleeping in days. We hope everyone is hunkered down and ready to ride out the squall.
