I hate hurricane season!

When last we spoke, it was summer. 

My word.. things have changed since then!

I have a new coworker!  Pumpkin Spice Lattes are back at Starbucks.

And it's Hurricane season.

We've had it nice the last couple of years.  The last major hurricane in our area was Irene in 2011.

Because of this, I've been SUPER lazy at keeping up the hurricane kit and now it's coming to bite my ass.  I don't have batteries or much in the way of non-perishables.  If we're without power for weeks, it's not going to be pleasant.

And as Hurricane Florence approaches, and the shelves are bare I'm REALLY regretting that.

I've been obsessively watching the news and following the weather sites about this one. 

One guy (a former TV weather guy) is forecasting a hurricane of biblical proportions with hundreds dead and months without power.

The guy I like on Facebook just forecasted this morning that North Carolina is screwed, but we might not have it as bad.

The thing that has me a bit freaked is flooding and being without power for more than a few days.  I was not made for "roughing it!"

Last night I so obsessively flicked form forecast to forecast that I gave myself a panic attack.  Hurricane are big, powerful, scary and a bit unpredictable.  A northward movement of the storm track at the last moment could spell disaster for us.

But today is Tuesday.  Florence is supposed to hit super early Friday morning.  I can at least have a small plan of things I can do until then to prepare.  Like dishes and laundry....

At least I have wine...

stay safe everyone!
