In the Path aka the Cone of Probablity!
Monday August 28th 2006
Obviously I did not take this photo!! This is the 11am (Monday) image from the NOAA web site - I added the pushpin to show you where we are!!
Preparation is ongoing!!
Funny story - we have most of our 'Hurricane stuff' already - masses of water, a boat full of gas, plenty of non-perishable food ... but we have these really neat battery operated fans (with lights too) that need 4 size D batteries, those we needed.
So after Jazzercise I went to Wally World (aka Wal-mart) to get them, some bread, milk etc - I also got 2 cases (24 in case) of Bud Light and one case of Corona Beer.... here are a couple of the comments I received with my cart of 'assumed Hurricane Supplies'
"I think you are supposed to get water not beer!"
"Are you going to brush your teeth with the beer too?"
all said in good humour I might add - and I DIDN'T get carded :( - It's been about 5 years since I have been carded while buying alchoholic beverages!! The cashier did do a swift comeback and said, "well I did do a double take to make sure" sweetheart!
