I have realized tonight that this hurricane is wearing me out emotionally. Hyper-vigilance revisited. Sigh. Trying to keep up with the track of this mega monster storm is exhausting when it is actually days away. And then trying to figure out what we need to get by, with not just Dan and I, but with his mother and brother with us, in my tiny house. They are all under an evacuation order, and my house is on fairly high ground for FL (20′ above sea level). They are in flood zone A, I am in the lowest level threat zone, E. I am not particularly good with a lot of house guests, but Dan will work as hard as I will at this, and it will be fine. They are good people.
We have a ton of food, and gas to cook it on, and lots of ice. And plenty of drinking water. Today we both managed to find gas, we’d both been looking for 2 days.
Anyway, I’ve decided not to get so nervous and wound up about all the possibilities until Saturday. The forecast could change 10 times by then, so I’ll just wait. They all seem to agree it will hit here around Sunday afternoon.
Dan is telling everyone he’s tying me to a post out front, about 10′ off the ground, so the storm can’t take me. He promises to come untie me when it’s over. HAHAHA. I think he’s jealous of all the people who are checking in on me, lol.
Time to call it a day, and go rest my storm-weary head. Love and light.
