Goodbye Hurricane Florence


Dearest Readers: Normally, when we have hurricane warnings/watches and the winds roar, I get horrified and do not sleep. Not with Hurricane Florence. I’ve slept really great every night, including last night. I awoke after 9:00am this morning. Really strange. Today looks like a normal day in Charleston, SC. We have gray clouds while theContinue reading “Goodbye Hurricane Florence”

Hurricane Florence – Finally It Rains


Dearest Readers: I suppose I should report, it looks like Hurricane Florence finally visited Charleston. We’re getting rain now. Looks like it has been a nice soaker – just like a normal rainy day.

Hurricane Florence – Awaiting, Day Five


Dearest Readers:   Image of Angel Oaks tree, over 400+ years old. Surviving many hurricanes. Today is Day Five of anticipating Hurricane Florence. Now, she’s downgraded to a Category One storm.

Yesterday atContinue reading “Day Three – Hurricane Florence Update”

Update – Hurricane Florence


  Dearest Readers: It has been a beautiful day in Charleston, SC. HOT! HUMID! Nevertheless, still beautiful. By now, I-26 is reversed, and the last I heard, traffic is moving well. Why? From what I’ve gathered today while driving to the doctor’s office, everyone appears to be staying home. In my neighborhood, I still seeContinue reading “Update – Hurricane Florence”

Hurricane Florence


Dearest Readers: While I sit here listening to news reports about Hurricane Florence and the evacuation I feel confident we will stay here, comfortable inside our home. We’ve done this for many years whenever a “hurricane is a-coming,” and I feel safe here. Our home is brick. We live less than ten miles from theContinue reading “Hurricane Florence”
