Tropical Storm Bertha


Dearest Readers: As most of you know, on December 23, 2019 I fell off a three-step ladder, fracturing my back. Last night, I awoke to horrific pain by the L-1. Tossing and turning, I got up, walked around, noticing the rain. We’ve had lots of rain since moving to Ravenel, South Carolina, but in thisContinue reading “Tropical Storm Bertha”

Hurricane Dorian — After Thoughts


Dearest Readers: Today is Saturday, September 7, 2019. Looking out the windows, I see beautiful sunshine, just like yesterday morning. Finally, we have power. It is so nice to awaken, even though I really haven’t slept, to the coolness of air conditioning. The humming of ceiling fans. The comfort of my pups, happy again nowContinue reading “Hurricane Dorian — After Thoughts”

More Rain – Hurricane Dorian – Day Three


Dearest Readers: Just another quick update. Yesterday, while we were doing a few errands. I noticed the amount of cars on the roads. I really believe most of our community is staying home. Lots of traffic, although it moved well. Today, we are in anticipation of greeting Hurricane Dorian. Earlier, we had torrential rains andContinue reading “More Rain – Hurricane Dorian – Day Three”

Hurricane Dorian – Day Two


Dearest Readers: Today is Day Two of Hurricane Dorian anticipation. Are we ready? Of course! We’ve been on this roller coaster before, and I confess, I do not care for roller coasters! During Hurricane Hugo, I stayed with 60 students at the college where I was employed. Yes. 60 students! Most of them I knew.Continue reading “Hurricane Dorian – Day Two”

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. The winds are dancing on the tree branches just like a normal day when we have rain. I haven’t been outsideContinue reading “Hurricane Florence – Finally It Rains”

Day Three – Hurricane Florence Update


Dearest Readers: Thought I’d post a quick update regarding Hurricane Florence. We are ready for her. Today is day three of listening to the Weather Channel, and Channel 2 weather reports. By now, I’m almost burned out from listening to the same thing…over…and over…and over again! Hurricane Florence is now a Category Three. 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”

Surviving Hurricanes


Dearest Readers: We survived the wrath of a potential Hurricane Irma. I say potential since she dropped down to a tropical storm when she visited Charleston, SC. We watched The Weather Channel. I must compliment them on their coverage and I am so thankful we survived. We lost power for less than two hours. Amazing.Continue reading “Surviving Hurricanes”
