It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

They are saying that the hurricane will hit the same time as high tide

That's not good news Jen Thumbs down

The wind is starting to pick up here, no rain yet though.

We've had steady rain now since about 11am. Winds are now up to the 30-ish mph range. Took the awning down and tucked all the plants in against the wall. We lost power from 11:30am-12:30pm, but it's back on now. I really think it was more related to some sort of incident than hurricane, as I heard alot of sirens right after. Very thankful it came back on... it was WAY too early for THAT yet! A beef roast is cookin' in the crockpot, so I hope that gets done. At this moment, the rain and wind are coming from the East, which is to our advantage since our balcony faces south, and is protected on the east side by our storage closet. So far, I have left my feeders up... the birds are really hitting them hard... hummers and the other birds. They are all so wet, so they need the food to stay warm. I could not find my rain gauge, so I don't know how much we have gotten so far, but I would venture a guess at between 1-2 inches.
Instead of running after perfection, why not simply walk in faith?

Took Addy to Ft Smallwood Park beach on the bay this mornng around 10 30. It was very breezy and whipping up some small waves. She loved it as usual. Here are some hopefully good cloud and beach pictures . Rain started around 11 here too and has picked up gradually while it doesn't seem much windier right now.

You migth find the windsurfer dude in one picture. We left him our email and will be sending him video and. or pics , he seemed very happy with the offer, as we hoped.

Winds are very high here now... poor little hummers are fine inside the windbreak of our balcony, but when they leave the wind just whips them away! They are such tenacious birds! We went for a while there when the power kept blinking, but we are OK for the time being! All of my water buckets I left on the balcony are filled to overflowing! I can see a couple small trees broken off on the east side of our building! Handing in there and watching the Iron Chef on TV!

Conditions are about the same here... still have power! Pot roast was delicious! Watching movies with the girls! Curfew in place now in most cities in Virginia. Hubby has to go to work! Sad

I thought I heard earlier about the tornadoes Crying I had to turn off the news it had gotten so repetitious Thumbs down

Been trying for two hours to get the dogs to go out. I've even gone out with an umbrella, no go except for Diesel, he's been out a few times. Doesn't seem to phase him. I think the others don't like the wind Thumbs down I don't think they will make it through the night and it's only going to get worse.
