    Yep. Everyone needs some one (or some place) to listen. I've found some of the best people here on BYC...some of the best friends I've never met.

We settled on a contractor and was waiting on a start date until we got all the trees out of the yard that we wanted removed. In March, the roofing contractor started. Up until the roof was finished we had buckets in our temporary kitchen, upstairs attic and living room. We had started rehab in the dining room because there were no leaks in there.

    One year later since Hurricane Irma in Florida and we are facing Hurricane Florence projected to make landfall here in North Carolina. We are about 40 miles inland from Nags Head.

    I think the hardest part of "transplanting" is missing my grandson Abel, born in April, 2017. I miss him everyday and I cry over him at least every other day.

    We worked continuously to prepare for Hurricane Florence, it was headed straight toward us. Then it took a change of path and headed further south. We have been really lucky. The cumulative rain was actually less than we saw in the August 14 days of rain storms. We have been playing a little bit of musical chickens with having 18 meat birds to raise right now, but it is all good. I can't even imagine if we were hit like Wilmington has been hit by this storm. Getting back to normal here.

    We have had worse rain yesterday and today than during the Tropical Storm Warning, but we are doing fine. Just playing musical chickens to keep them dry.

    We are working on the kitchen now and are about ready to lay tile. I laid it out on the yard, cause this is only going to happen once. IMG_20181014_145850546.jpg
