I had nightmares all night last night about my house flooding with me in it, and about evacuating over and over again to avoid approaching danger of various kinds. I think I'm a little bit stressed about returning home.
My parents have hurricane Ophelia knocking at their door right now in the Carolinas. They live not far from where this story on CNN is set. And to think I could be there right now for round two of all this fun. Hang in there Mom and Dad! I know it's only a catagory 1 storm, but get out if they tell you to leave. Do not mess around even if you do have a house made with cement walls. Come down and stay with us in Louisiana if you have to evacuate. :-)
I just finished my morning coffee and we are going to start loading the car and the minivan. I know the dogs will be happy to get back to their own yard although we will have to come up with some other way to fence them temporarily. When we get home, I may not have Internet access for a while, but I will post again as soon as I do. My sis wants me to make sure to give her the play by play on the outcome of our refridgerator and freezer. We won't have mail service for a while either, although we can drive over to one of our post offices to pick up mail that gets through. Our phone seems to work at the house most of the time, so we'll be available that way at least.
Time to hit the road and head home. I guess I'm not a refugee anymore.
