I didn't realize the last reply was way back in 2014, wow. Well, right now I'm on a break at work! Drinking coffee and munching on a cereal bar.

Sitting here in my retired bliss, thinking about whether I want to take the grandkids to Dairy Queen for lunch... and wondering how mad Timber will be if I leave him alone again. He has gotten accustomed to having me around a lot, and noticeably pouts when I leave.

I'm watching the news to see how direct or indirect a hit the Carolinas are going to take with Hurricane Dorian.  :(

I'm thankful I don't live directly on the coast (I'm 60 miles inland), but that probable-path 'cone' definitely shows my area most likely to be hit pretty hard. 

And we're already receiving a heavy downpour today from a different northern front rain, so the ground is going to already be over-saturated when and where Dorian does hit -- which always means trees uproot more easily in the winds. 

So, I guess I am just worrying right now.  My generator is ready (for my freezer), gas cans full, water and non-perishables were purchased last week, solar powered lights and powerpacks for usb items (like iphone) are charged.  I wish this system could give us a miss after we suffered enough during Hurricane Florence just last year.  And I feel guilty for worrying about my own storm prep when I think of the system nearly stalled over the poor Bahamas right now, doing who knows what major damage there.  :(

Stay safe! I can't imagine what they are going to find in the Bahamas when they can get it. I feel so sorry for the people there.

Just sitting here on my computer watching the weather along the east coast and thinking how lucky we are here.

I live in north east Ohio and when it comes to weather and work it`s said that we are the beat location in the nation.

We get about 10 ft of snow in the winter but I can live with that. We are in the north east Ohio snow belt, but we get less than Erie Pa. and Buffalo N.Y.

Thanks -- I hope we'll stay safe too!

Re: Bahamas: Yeah, and we don't really have any data yet since the Bahamas are still being pounded and dealing with severe flooding inland.   :(

I wish this thing could go on back out to sea, but I think the Carolinas (where I am) are in for a hit.

@Ray P I know cold kills but I do LOVE snow.  I am a child at heart, remembering listening to radio to hoping for school closings (and me now in my 50s).  lol
