The good news is coming! First, Pete and Bubba got the little metal building all buried and ready to go. If it isn't needed this go around, it'll be there for any tornado or other severe weather that should come our way. That is if we aren't all bedded up and sleeping through it. Lord knows this bunch does their best sleeping in bad weather.
So far NOAA and our most trusted local meteorologist agree that we aren't going to get any of the really rough stuff here. Winds topping out at 40-45. A good deal of rain. But we are high and dry as far as flooding goes.
Pete and Bug are spraying a coat of white paint inside the shelter. So we can see easier in there. I have chicken & dumplings, peas and fried cornbread ready in here to eat. Bubba, being 19, just had to run see someone for a little while.
My stomach is growling! My, but those dumplings smell good! So, for now all looks really good for us. My thoughts and prayers are with those for whom it might not be so good.
Will continue to keep you posted. We could loose electricity over a hard sneeze around here...so it is always possible that even a gentle storm will leave us in the dark and me disconnected from you. So, please stick to the old adage that no news is good news. ;o)
