Tropical storm Hannah sends me packing!!!

Well, I'm back home early due to tropical storm/ hurricane Hannah. We've just bought a home off the Neuse River which I went to try to get things organized AND wouldn't you know the first week we own it I have to leave due to the possibility of flooding!!!!! The home is on pilings, so I don't worry about the house itself flooding, but the car sits underneath the house, so it can flood if the water gets high enough. With storm surges expected at 2 to 4 feet it probably wouldn't flood,but I didn't want to take a chance. I had all 3 dogs with me- Cocotini is the absolutely BEST traveler. She just curls up in her crate and falls asleep, so I came back for their safety,too. So much to catch up on the forum. I think it said almost 2600 posts since I was last on line!!

Jocelyn, Mindy, Cocotini, and Candy

Best of luck Jocelyn! If you need to commiserate about the joys of evacuation, let me know. Been there, done that.

Jocelyn,
I am so sorry that you had to leave the new house early! At least you, DH, and the pups are safe! And you know this will pass & you will have great times there!!
I so enjoyed meeting you and was so bummed that you had to leave early!! I bet hubby still thinks I am a nut!!

I hope you put the Chicago dates on the calendar and meet us all there next year!! We still have an outstanding date for a chocolate cocotini martini!!
