WAVE AS YOU GO BY, MICHAEL

Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,

Although the air is so heavy with humidity that it's almost unbearable to be outside, we've had very little rain.

I don't want you to worry that Hurricane Michael will visit us. Although we're supposed to have heavy rain and high winds between midnight and 6 a.m. and no doubt will have plenty of branches to clean up afterwards, we will not get a direct hit. Michael will soon be on his way to Georgia and Alabama, where he'll be much rougher.

We had a tornado warning earlier today, but I have no idea where the tornado was supposed to be.

When it rains later tonight, Franklin will hide in my bedroom closet and Penelope will tremble next to me in the bed. The three of us will comfort each other.


Infinities of love,

Janie Junebug

    I heard a weather expert say he thought this was the last for the season, let's hope he's right!

  10. Glad you and the pooches are okay. I hope you didn't have too much work in the yard afterwards with branches and twigs. We hardly got any snow here. :( It went north of us, apparently.

  14. I'm hoping this finds you none the worse for the hurricane festivities. We're far enough north in Georgia that all we got was a lot of rain. The hurricane/tropical stom watches and warnings were all south of Macon. Haven't seen much about the damage (of which I'm certain is plenty), but all the watches and warnings have expired and it's now sunny and dry out.
