  1. Seriously. I read something like this this afternoon and got so nervous for you. I was wondering if you'd gotten that generator sounding right again.

  2. Oh gosh! Are you ready? Do you have someplace safe for you and the boys??? I will say a prayer for you and everyone in the area! And of course if/when the power goes, you need to let us know asap that you are all good!

  4. Will be praying forecasters are off. It does happen. I grew up in S. Florida and we had several close class while I was there, but never hits. Of course I left in the 80's and since then they have been hit several times. Let's just hope Earl peters out before getting to the Eastern Shore and VB. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

    Boy, some people will do anything to keep from getting that fall garden in. :)

  5. Oh Wow! wow....and wow again. That link is kind of frightening. My only tropical storm experience was being in Sanibel when Charley rode through. Gave me plenty of respect for that weather. good to know your pantry is stocked, huh? good thoughts are with you!

  6. Did they change the projections or something? I must be missing something on that link....hoping all your ducks are in a row, and that you don't get any damage to persons or property Erin. When are they telling you to bunker down?

  7. Thanks everyone for the good wishes! I'll try for an update tomorrow night or Thurs morning, have a hectic day ahead tomorrow with our squadron's Family Support Group meeting and project.

    Kelly, EARL is fickle mother LOL! I don't even look at the updates until the evening news anymore, but last I heard the winds will start Thurs night and then Friday morning for it to approach

  8. Erin, hopefully Earl will veer more right and out to the ocean. But you never know, so do like they say: Hope for the best, be prepared for the worst. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you and your veggies!

  10. I was thinking of you as I watched the storm predictions on the news tonight! It's supposed to brush by us here in CT, too. Most hurricanes have pretty much petered out by the time they get to us. I hope you're as lucky, and Earl loses steam or veers off to the right!

  11. I've been thinking of you and some other friends of ours in Gloucester Point. Batten down the hatches!

  12. Oh, and I'm trying as hard as I can to push this storm front to the East to shove Earl out of the way. We've got a severe thunderstorm warning up right now- a big one headed our way.
