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,

Waiting to find out the damage in Panama City. Glad you were out of its path!ReplyDelete
Panama City was hit hard. Michael made landfall there with record breaking 155 m.p.h. winds.Delete
I am so happy to hear that you will not be in the path.ReplyDelete
Hope Franklin and Penelope will be fine.
cheers, parsnip and badger
We didn't even get the rain and wind that we were supposed to have.Delete
This is good to hear.Delete
Keep safe👍🏻Linda@Wetcreek BlogReplyDelete
Nothing out of the ordinary happened here. We're as safe as we usually are.Delete
Stay safe and dry!ReplyDelete
I heard a weather expert say he thought this was the last for the season, let's hope he's right!
Hurricane season doesn't end until sometime in Nov.Delete
Glad to read that you are snug and not in the path of this Michael guy...ReplyDelete
He didn't even wave hello or goodbye.Delete
So glad you're okay. We got nothing in the Mobile area. Feeling very thankful, but you are right about that humidity. It's dreadful!!ReplyDelete
It was still warm and humid today.Delete
Stay safe and know that you always have a place to stay in CA - should you ever have the urge to escape to the other coast.ReplyDelete
If I ever have the $, I'll show up at your door.Delete
So glad to hear that Michael didn't head in your direction. Hope there are no scary thunderstorms for the kiddos...ReplyDelete
Stay safe and dry.

It thundered once or twice during the evening. Nothing after we went to bed.Delete
That's right, Michael, just pass on by!ReplyDelete
Better yet, turn around and go back in the ocean.Delete
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.ReplyDelete
No yard work at all.Delete
I'm please that we are safe, and so sorry for those not so fortunate.ReplyDelete
I'm sorry for those who received a direct hit from Michael. They have a lot of damage.Delete
Great that you're spared the bad effects from this one!ReplyDelete
I agree. I didn't want to be out cleaning up the yard all day.Delete
Stay safe, Janie!!ReplyDelete
We always do!Delete
Hi Janie - good to know all is well ... take care - cheers HilaryReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
It was still overcast and humid today, but it could have been much worse.Delete
I'm so glad you're safe! Thanks for the update! :)ReplyDelete
Glad you and the pooches are safe there, Janie.ReplyDelete
Glad you were safe. We almost never get hurricanes here in Maine.ReplyDelete
