    Sheesh! I've been counting down the days left of this year's hurricane season, at the start of Nov I was rejoicing at the thought of a year with no significant storm damage anywhere. It's a good thing I INSIST that we don't crack open the hurricane supplies until AFTER Nov 30. With hurricanes, as with childbirth, it's best to prepare for the worst, hope for the best, & expect the unexpected. Even a hurricane in November...

    I pray for the safety & well-being of everyone in Ida's path, and pray for Ida to weaken considerably. Watch out & stay safe, y'all!

    According to this link, it will only be a category 1 when it hits. That's plenty strong enough and I know these things change strength and path. It is supposed to hit somewhere on the Alabama-Florida border then head east. After that, the computer models are all over the place. One has it heading up the east coast, but some have it looping south across Florida and reentering the gulf. You just never know.

    I'm sure anyone who has been through these things understand what I am saying. I don't wish ill on anyone, but I have friends and kids in southeast Louisiana. I was relieved to see the projected track is to the east, yet dread for those in its path. One good thing is that it is traveling fairly fast. It won't have a lot of time to build up strength. I hope.

    So what does everyone do for bad weather prep?

    Today, I'm walking the property to make sure things are put away - that's supposed to happen every day anyway. Picking up the next bag of feed a few days early (only have 5 hens). Just in case, I have a garage-sale large dog carrier. DH has already said they can go in the garage loose (HE doesn't clean up after them). I will set down the last hanging basket flowers, check the shed doors, all windows for tight shut & locked. Clear the driveway drain of debris. Set the garbage can in the garage if the wind picks up. There's an old nasty tarp to toss over the tractor if I think it needs it, but that overheats things, so I probably wont'.
