Can't Help Myself...

I feel the need to blog about this damn hurricane that is now beginning to show it's ugly face on the coast. Hopefully, we're far enough inland to avoid the "catastrophic damage" the news has been predicting. We are however under a tornado watch until Monday night. Are we safe from the hurricane? yes and no. Though our area has not been asked to evacuate, many homes are boarded up, grocery stores and gas stations are empty, the freeways are gridlocked, and the icecream truck just drove down my street! WTH? Ok, now THAT was surreal.

There is just something so somber about all of this. It's as though we're watching a really bad trainwreck in slow motion...a 36 hour trainwreck, and there's nothing you can do about it until the damage has been done and you can go in and repair it. We'll probably be without power and water for a day or two (quite possibly longer), but we have the things we need. (At least, I think we do. We've never been through a hurricane before.)

I'm fed up with the anticipation of it all.
Hell hath no fury like mother nature.

Katrina, bring it on...Bitch.

  6. OMG - I would take a tornado over a hurricane any day - you don't really know that they are coming, they hit, do their damage and its done... Hurricaness/earthquakes scare the crap out of me! I hope you are far enough in, and just get some rain. My Aunt lives in Clearwater, and they are usually pretty lucky - so hope you are too! Will be thinking of you! Make sure you have lots and lots of Water!

  7. Tornado's suck a$$! Good luck and all that.

    When the ice cream truck came by, I hope you took advantage and got one of those yummy drumsticks with the chocolate and nuts n stuff. hmmm those are good. And you could have probably got the crazy driver to give you a discount due to the fact that no one in their right mind would be buying ice cream right now... lol
