Go Flo, Go

Saturday night update
All rain and wind continue tomorrow
Voila..our downstairs camp out last night.
Three children thrilled, grandma snuck up to her own bed.
 The two little darlings...enjoying their scooters at night.
We had parked up on the street to avoid trees with the cars.
That left a lovely wet downhill driveway
This morning was the same.  Some folks love hurricanes
We made the best of it because we are inland and not on the coast.
Dylan is a smart one...After learning about cleaning out storm gutters.
This morning, he noticed they needed cleaning again.
He just did boy.
Last night was delightful sleeping with my window cracked to hear the rain
and enjoy the wind.
This afternoon, I read on the screened in porch until I heard branches
cracking in my yard and a huge boom and thud as 
a neighbor's tree came crashing down.
Smart Grandma decided that it would be safer inside.
We live in the woods, after all.
Tonight and tomorrow is supposed to be the worst part for us.
Too bad cuz I already ate the candy corn

While I was napping the two littles...8 and 9 drank the jar of pickle juice.
On a dare from each other..
Me think it might have been giggle juice as they could not stop laughing.
We all deal in different ways.

My son is with us.
He has already chopped up today's downed branches.
Thank you for all the emails of encouragement and courage.
Wow  the wind is blowing tempted to go back outside on the porch to read.
Wind is my favorite.  Charlotte does not get wind that much.
My young heart says..just go ahead..
My old brain...says, no...

Hope all goes well for you tonight. I am here in Rock Hill and want to stay up until 1:00 or 2:00, which is when it is supposed to get really bad for us. I have lots of old Oak trees around my house.

I hope the worst is over now, or at least that you've been able to go for more candy and pickle juice. :-)

I guess I didn’t realize how close you are to the action. Stay safe, my friend.
