Hurricane Irene, anyone?

Who else is in the path of this monstrosity? Gosh, I am praying it turns. Battening down my house is SOOO Much work because we have so much crap outside to bring in the garage and whatnot Not to mention, last hurricane sprung a bunch of leaks in my sewing room, fabric closet and I'm just hoping the east coast catches a a break on this one. They have it aiming right at the Outer banks, NC/ Virginia Beach Hampton Roads, VA at the moment. but the way its tracking now, it could graze the whole upper East Coast.

I am a few miles west of I 95 there could still be heavy rain and downed trees, flooding there is a flood zone in the back of my property, they keep passing variances infilling and building it causes tremendous flooding and over filling of the strom drains. Hope we get a break.

Robbie, you will get a whirl or rain and wind where you are! Thanks for the prayers and thoughts, all the positive vibes we can get pushing it OUT to sea are appreciated, lol ..mother nature is an unpredictable force, that's for sure.

We have a house at Figure Eight, which is in Wilmington, NC, and my husband is leaving tomorrow to board everything up. We are on the beach and have been through this many times. Praying it will pass us by. Praying for everyone else, too.

My daughter lives in the Dominican Republic. Fortunately it hit north of them and she and her family are fine. Hope all here will be also.

I'm praying that the weather people are wrong. Already have my list and stocking up on charcoal and other stuff in case we lose power. We never have before, but they really are scaring us on Long Island. One report said we could lose parts of LI due to erosion from this storm. Keep safe everyone.

We had hail two weeks ago, an earthquake yesterday, and now a hurricane. As Julian would say, holy cwap!

I think mother nature is really testing us. The hail scared the bejeebers out of me. For the first time in 25 years the hail was so big and so cacophonous, I thought it would break my skylights. The earth shifting under my feet, or to be more accurate, my butt, yesterday did nothing to quell my fears, and now the threat of a hurricane is almost more than I can stand. So, do you think I should be buying more than ice cream and cookies?

On Long Island, I don't know if the storm will be strong up here or not. My area is on the tornado warning area. Atleast I found out there are three shelters so far where pets are welcome in case and possible more to come.

Earthquake totally freaked out poor Gizzie, hopeing this one bypasses everyone.
