I spent the day “boarding up” two houses and a business. That means covering windows and doors with plywood to prevent debris from entering the houses during a hurricane.
I am officially “during a hurricane.”
Hurricane Ivan’s projected path has the storm coming straight up into my neck of the woods; which puts me and the family “on the road outta here!”
We’ve prepared the house for storm damage and packed up some clothes and “irreplacables” (including my ventriloquist dummy) and we are headed north into Mississippi back to our old hometown to stay with friends for a few days.
Be back in three days or so, and I am fully prepared to begin repairs. I’ll update you further at that time.
Until then, we’ll be safe, you be safe, too.
