Hurricane Irma looks very, very powerful and the resulting hysteria in Florida is outright toxic (there are fistfights at gas stations). A friend offered to host us in Virgina and we have decided to accept that invitation. So we are going to hit the road at 0500 tomorrow. I will try my best to remain in contact and maybe even post a little something once I get to southern Virginia, but no promises. Frankly, I am already exhausted even before hitting the road.
You are all wonderful friends and I want to thank you all for your kindness and concern. God willing, we will be perfectly fine. My biggest fear is for our house, a rather weak structure in a flood zone, but it survived 5 hurricanes in the past and it will probably survive this one too. I just pray for a weak storm surge…
I will try to keep you posted, possibly in the Café.
Herb and Scott will keep the blog up in my absence.
Hugs and cheers to all, see y’all later :-)
