Good Morning

I say Good Morning although I know that so many Americans are not having a good one today. I was watching the TV reports on Florence disaster. What an awful storm to have to go through. And more coming along. Mother Nature has been quite a beast over the years, but now we see it happening almost minutes by minutes, it makes it more real. Keeping my fingers crossed for everyone out there. Stay safe

Good morning from inside the storm Florence. I'm 90 miles (145km) from the eye of the storm. By some miracle, we still have power and internet. Thanks for your good thoughts.

@DWDavis , I will be thinking about you, keep us informed. It must be terrifying to have to go through all this.

@marlina The first hurricane I lived through was frightening. Now, I follow the axiom of Be Prepared, Not Scared. Having been through several hurricanes and tropical storms in my life, I have respect for what they can do, but I don't fear them.

@DWDavis You are brave! I think I would be totally "paralyzed by fear"

I am also following the news. Even if the hurricane has been downgraded, it is causing a lot of damages.

I am very much inland, so we probably won't feel the effects of this storm, but I do have friends on the coast and it seems everyone is okay, just some damage to homes and belongings.

@MALUSE, I believe it is a "Burning Bush", I took that photo a few years ago while out walking.

Is that a picture of a burning bush? It looks lovely. I am thinking of those living in the path of that hurricane also. We are expecting a warm and humid weather this weekend. We are leaving for St. Jacob's this afternoon, we'll go thru the town later today and get up early to go to the big market in the morning.

@marlina Thank you. We just got back home a short while ago. We planted some burning bushes in front of some of our wood fencing at our old home. It looked so striking from the road as we had a lot of frontage.

It is going go be a hot and sunny day today as we we continue to have one of the best September's that I can remember. Florence has caused much destruction in some areas and we are all saddened by that.

It will be sleeping time soon here and I am hoping and praying for those people there in SC and other states that will be affected. Also here in the Northern part of our country. We are expecting a super typhoon that will landfall tomorrow morning.
