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”

IS THERE A HURRICANE A-COMING?


Dearest Readers: Seems I am collecting an abundance of people to call when and IF we are “ordered to evacuate” for Hurricane Irma. I detest being ordered. I’ve checked with many of my friends.

Hurricane Irma


Dearest Readers: This will be brief. Today, I’ve spent the day getting ready in the event Irma comes to town. I pray this monster category 5 hurricane will decrease in strength and wind. The USA does not need another tragedy after Hurricane Harvey. If you are nearby the Florida Coast, please do what the GovernorContinue reading “Hurricane Irma”

Hurricane Matthew vs. Hurricane Phil…


Dearest Readers: It is official. We survived Hurricane Matthew. I must confess, Matthew was nothing like Hurricane Hugo. NOTHING! Early¬†Friday morning, before the wrath of Matthew, my husband followed me to park my car in one of the downtown garages in Charleston. I was fearful Matthew might blow out windows, or thrust a tree intoContinue reading “Hurricane Matthew vs. Hurricane Phil…”

  Dearest Readers: October 7, 2016, will be a day for history. Hurricane Matthew is scheduled to hit the southeast coast of South Carolina later today. Looking out my window, I see the winds gusting now. Occasional rains tap my windows periodically, but not enough now to worry. Our family consists of my husband andContinue reading “Hurricane Matthew Scheduled to Arrive Soon”

When and If Hurricane Matthew Comes to the Lowcountry…


Dearest Readers: Within 24-36 hours, we, in the low country, will know what our chance of meeting Hurricane Matthew is. Here’s what I predict. As most of you know, Charleston, SC is the ‘number one city in the world.’ No doubt, a Chamber of Commerce statement. Yes, it is a beautiful city. Antiquated!!! And I’mContinue reading “When and If Hurricane Matthew Comes to the Lowcountry…”

Hurricane Hugo — The Aftermath of the Storm…September 21, 2014


Dearest Readers: I have been quiet for a bit. Just a bit perplexed with writing…feeling as if I could not write one word ever again.

So many people cannotContinue reading “Hurricane Hugo — The Aftermath of the Storm…September 21, 2014”
