OK, Florida! is our turn now! :(.....
You know, it's gotten to the point that the 'who cares' attitude in taking a hold of me. 'So, another typhoon, so what...type of thing'
Getting ready for one on our Wend.(your Tuesday) and there are other two stacking up behind it. My plumerias are in bloom, so are my hibiscus bouganvilleas and ginger. So, tomorrow, we get up early, get all the stuff inside, you know the drill, and close all the typhoon shutters....ok, I'm rumbling here, anyway, just wanted you to know......let you know when is over...

I can't imagine living like that, but I guess you don't have a choice! =) It is better to get used to it than to be constantly afraid or bothered by it. Good to hear your positive attitude, Ana! =)

RE: Batten down the hutches!.... again!

Hope you make it through okay!! Be sure and let us know
what happened. Don't get much news on the Pacific side here.
Good luck Gary

RE: Batten down the hutches!.... again!

Isn't it 'batten down the hatches'? As in the ship's doors? Or have you got rabbits? :)

Anyway, I'm sure everything will work out fine! (Now if we got a cyclone here we'd be in strife - my greenhouse would blow away for sure)

RE: Batten down the hutches!.... again!

LOL, Nathan! I didn't even notice the mispelling! =) Rabbits. . . =)

RE: Batten down the hutches!.... again!

Thank you all for your good thoughts!
All is well, it veered to the south and we got some wind, about 50 MPH and only 5" of rain, small damage to some plants, but they'll grow back.
Sorry, I was in a hurry and didn't check the spelling.... and no, I don't have rabbits :)
Yes, one gets used to it, same like with quakes in Ca., snow in the north, flooding, hurricanes, etc. There are no perfect places, unfortunately, but, if there were, they would be so crowded that they wouldn't perfect.

RE: Batten down the hutches!.... again!

Good point! I have often wondered why the settlers (or the Natives, for that matter!) ever stayed here after the first winter, but I guess there are no perfect places on earth, like you said. Thank goodness I'm going to a better place later! =)
