As I hunker down with shutters closed, a pile of batteries and mound of bottled water, I think of those who have not evacuated and maybe should have or don’t have the choice. While moving about like a troglodyte, I’m hoping that all the precautions that everyone has taken in the anticipation of Mathew, is enough.

The governor of Florida has informed us that we will be losing electric but it is the least inconvenience if all lives are saved. Warning systems have been well placed and given us all plenty of notice.  Kudos to those in charge.

My heart goes out to everyone experiencing a hardship.  Good luck to us all!
