This is a great photo! I love when my chicks hang out with me. My little helpers.
On that storm that blew through last night, I kept waking up and eyeballing the ceiling for leaks, cause not a year ago we had terrible leak problems and had to get work done. I mean it was terrible! Hasn't leaked since but every time we get hard wind or rain...no sleep for me. Been here in Tampa for going on 8 years now but the whole annual hurricane tornado and all that still make my hackles rise up. And me being me with my paramilitary history...the first of every June marks my "kids gather your 3 day packs" and my turning the family room into "the great gathering of supplies and evacuation maps" campagne. Neighbors think I'm a doomsday nut, I just think it's smarter to hope for the best...but prepare for the worst.. ya know?
Side, back in Texas there was a few flash flood times left me not so high or dry. I ain't going through that again...no m
We should compare notes. Hurricane Frances - no electricity two weeks and well pump was damaged so no water to house but had water to barn thank the good Lord; my two year old got bathed in a sanitized pasture water trough and then the rest of us after her - all the house screens blew out had to shut up house at night because of the mosquitoes and it was horrid. Then Hurricane Jeanne came after they got the power back on and blew it all out again . . . Hurricane Wilma picked carport up out of cement and smashed it into roof, two times, cracked the roof right down the middle. Drive without traffic signals for weeks and you learn to follow semi-tractor trailers through the intersection . . . I don't live in fear, but I know fear when it comes to these storms. Everyone no matter where you are in Florida needs to plan ahead and be prepared. I do believe there are enough of us on this site who would be more than happy to give tips.
