So we continue getting ready for the hurricane and wait. Two of the kids offered to go to the grocery store with me. We got there around 10:30am and already a rather full parking lot and not a single cart available in the store. It was very crowded, a number of people were joking about the situation but an equal number were quite rude. We did self-scan and bagged as we shopped so our wait to check out was minimal.
We have lots of non-perishable foods, bottled water, ice, candles, flash lights with charged batteries. We moved the flower pots, recycle bins, and trash can; went on a quest to find the coolers in the basement. Later in the afternoon I put gas in the van and I’m doing one last load of laundry.
Not much else to do at this point. The rain is supposed to start late in the morning and continue until around noon on Sunday.
There was a beautiful sunset sky this evening. E and I took a walk to the field behind our house and then up the hill to the higher grounds near the elementary school. I got a number of photos to add to my sky collection.
