I guess it’s D-day. Irma is landing with all her minions: storm surge, catastrophic winds, deluges of rain. Being invaded. This morning they say it’s coming ashore in Sarasota, about 45 minutes south of here, as a Cat. 4. It . only have about 40 miles to lose strength before it gets to the Tampa Bay area, so it will be blowing hard, as the center of the storm passes over us. Probably around 125 mph.
Sure glad there’s no climate change. If there was, imagine how much bigger this storm would be! I mean it’s like 4 times as big as Hurricane Andrew, one of the most destructive hurricanes to ever hit FL, and it’s just as strong. So, if there WAS such a thing as climate change, imagine! It might cover the whole eastern seaboard.
Seriously, what fool could deny climate change with 3 major hurricanes in the western Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico simultaneously? Denial is so stupid. The world is still round, despite some people’s belief it is flat.
Since preparation is pretty much done, I’m just going to do laundry and make sure everything is clean, and vacuum the kitchen again. Then I think I’ll do a little baking for fun. We have so much food, but I think some muffins might be good. Anything to brighten the next 36 hours til this is over and we can begin clean-up. I will be so glad to be on the other side of this ordeal.
I will say we both slept well last night. Thank God, because I’m guessing tonight will be fairly sleepless for all of us. Maybe I’ll learn to play backgammon. If we can play by candlelight, lol.
Love and light, everyone.
