According to the National Weather Service’s path projection, I can expect Hurricane Edouard to make a bee line to my front door around 6 or 7 a.m. tomorrow morning. This will be my first time riding one out. We tucked our tails between our legs and ran during Rita, and I was at the beach surfing on Katrina’s waves as it passed us by.
It is kind of scary and sort of exciting waiting for a really big storm to hit, and it is hard to look out my back door and see the hot bright sunny day and imagine that when I get up tomorrow right in the middle of one of Mother Nature’s temper tantrums. But that’s what they say is exactly what I will wake up to.
I have plenty of supplies laid up…water, food and more than adequate supplies of wine…so all should be well. However, if the power goes out it may be a day or two before I post again.
I wonder what wine goes with 50 mph winds? I will let you all know if I find a good match. Cheers!
[UPDATE] Edouard turned out to be a pretty good thunderstorm in my area, but that’s about it. Lots of tree limbs down and my back yard is a big puddle, but certainly nothing warranting all of the hype (this time).
