Apparently we are in the path of Hurricane Irene.

Hmmm remind me why we moved to USA again?

This is the weirdest feeling as yesterday was hot and humid with a stillness in the air that was exceedingly creepy. The night revealed the deepest sky blue pink.

The calm before the storm maybe?

The TV and radio were all constantly warning about taking precautions, bring in your garden furniture, have bottled water, food for 3-5 days etc. etc.

Masses of holiday makers fled our lake desperate to get home. The local craft fair was pretty much abandoned as people dragged their boats out of the water. Water bottles were purchased as if they were gold.

Now we all play the waiting game.

Yes, we have the rain and winds nothing severe yet. We know where the local shelter is. 

It is the weirdest feeling!

Nothing more than a big rain storm down here . . . Yes, some flooding and some downed tress, but nothing catastrophic.
