Calm Before The Storm

It's pretty calm right now, but we are expecting some bad weather here in the carolinas come Monday or Tuesday. Though we live 200 miles from the coast, we are in the line of hurricane Irma thats going to make land fall unless she takes a sharp turn back into the Atlantic. 

In 1998 we lived through the devistating hurricane Hugo which made land fall and hit the carolinas like wrecking ball. We were out of power, water and ice for days. Since then, people around here get worried when we see the threat of a hurricane. 

Me and Nick got ahead of the game and took a trip to Walmart on Wednesday night. We picked up a couple cases of water, some staple foods, snacks and instant coffee (because what worst can happen if the power goes out right?). We already have batteries for the flash lights and I grabbed a pack of candles. I love candles anyway so any excuse to get some is a win for me.

The store was calm, there was still bread on the shelves, and plenty of water in stock. I told Nick it was the calm before the storm. I was right. The stores were hit hard on Thursday. People are now having trouble finding the simple necessities such as water and bread. The storm is not here yet and I'm sure the store shelves will be restocked again before the storm hits, but the state is still in a panic. 
Here is what we are expecting where I am.

We have been keeping an eye on this storm as it will wiggle East and West. We are also concerned about our camper stored on the coast of SC (in the orange). 

Latest Update as I type, "Irma just shifted again and we may be out of danger as it moves more West. 

Looks like Florida will get the worst of it. Hotels have waived pet bans and airlines have cut flight prices.
So if your in the red, get out or hunker down

Prayers for everyone in the path of this storm.

  1. Praying for your safety and your camper.

  2. Praying you will be safe in the storm.

  3. I join in, in wishing you and your family safety.

  4. I have been keeping an eye on it also, my folks are down below you over in the "Golden Corner" of SC, it looks like the hurricane did make a slight turn to the west moving you out of line somewhat. Prayers for everyone in the path and I'm glad you and Nick have gotten ahead of the storm by picking up necessities just in case.

  5. I hope you and your family remain safe. This storm is so scary.
