I haven't been posting the past several days because we have been doing hurricane prep. We brought all of our small, loose stuff into the garage, got some candles (we already have a hurricane "kit" so we were good on water and food, batteries, etc.--thank goodness we didn't have to visit a grocery store!)
We live just across the bridge to the north of Norfolk/Virginia Beach. We are about 5-7 miles from Chesapeake Bay so we will not be affected by tidal flooding. I'm hoping we don't have any power outages!
We started feeling the effects last night. We already have over 2 inches of rain and wind gusts up to 43 mph.
We are going to stay in for the day!
The biggest bummer? Someone had the "bright" idea and realized that the entire Megalopolis of the East Coast was now obsessively watching the Weather Channel. What had been a political commercial "safe" zone no longer is...
I hope anyone else out there in the path is safe! Also, I'm glad the tsunami that hit Hawaii a few hours ago was only a foot or two high!
