Just in Case

We are currently preparing to evacuate for Dorian.  Just in case things get crazy, I wanted to let you know that next month is going to be purple.  We've all been waiting a long time for purple! 
I'm not really sure when we will be back.  Just in case it isn't before Tuesday, I'll make a Tiny Tuesday block when we are home again safe and sound.  It will be our first hurricane living beach side, so it is all new to us.  We found a hotel in Orlando with a special hurricane rate and they take pets, so we are going to try to pretend that it is a nice little weekend get away. 
 I was successful in getting all of the shutters down.  Kurt has been in Denver all week so it was just me. 
 Thankfully everything worked great and it was super easy. We will pull in all the furniture and batten the hatches when we both get home this afternoon. 
Even though I know Dorian is out there gaining speed, the ocean was beautiful this morning.  It is hard to imagine what it will look like in just a few days.  We are at school today, though not a lot of learning is going on.  Everyone is anxious and worried about what is going to happen next.

I do pray that this thing just loses its gusto. I live on the Gulf Coast near Galveston so I know what it is like to be evacuated.

Please keep us all posted on your welfare as much as possible.

Stay Safe! Thinking about my Florida friends this week. I have been away but now have a new rainbow project so I had to peek at what colour for Aug and then I see you gave us Sept too.

Thank you for thinking of us when you have so much to deal with and Kurt out of town. I know a lot of people were anxiously awaiting purple (my favorite color). Be safe and update us when you can. I have family and friends from one end of FL to the other and we're praying for all of you.

Good luck, hope Doran looses her puff very very soon!

I hope Dorian loses strength before coming ashore. Intense hurricanes are no fun. Stay safe and see you on the flip side!

You were the first one I thought about as I knew you had just moved into that beautiful home! Let's hope that all is OK and that it will not be as bad as it appears! Safe time in Orlando!
