    Just a quick check-in. Missed mandatory evac by two streets. We have taken all necessary precautions and are as ready as can be - all schools (inc the one I work for) are closed. Anticipating the loss of power, but hopefully nothing worse. Will check in as I can, for now - a quick snapshot of the calm before...

    House is spotless

    All washing (clothes and dishes) have been done

    Have non perishable food stuffs at the ready. Bathtubs filled with water.

    Cars are gassed up. Electronics charged up. We are ready. Hopefully we will not lose power.

    The state of Virginia work offices in our area have already closed tomorrow. Let me tell you this is practically unheard of. I worked for them for over 7 years and they never closed. I no longer work for them and they do this. Crazy.

    We are just waiting and watching. I am about 3 1/2 hours outside of NYC and right now it looks like we will be in the "tropical storm" ring and not the "hurricane" ring. We are looking at a high wind warning ( up to 75 mph possible) and some heavy rain. We have pellet for the stove, groceries, and that is pretty much where we are. We will make sure everything outside is put away and then we will just play it by ear. Not totally sure about sending Katie to school tomorrow. I would have to have to go out with the 2 boys in the middle of the day to get her.

    Butterhead, you be careful out there








    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne


    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.
