Surviving Edouard

Well, we are being hit 'full-force' by Tropical Storm Edouard. We are in the path of the eye, so we're getting rain and some wind, but for us, so far, neither has been bad. Yesterday, my daughter and I went 'hurricane shopping' and stocked up on water, non-perishable canned goods, fruits and veggies and chocolate. I boiled half a dozen eggs, too, so that we'd have cooked eggs for eating or putting into tuna fish sandwiches, should be loose electricity. I thought about frying bacon (for BLT's) but then I didn't. Hmmm, I still have electricity, maybe I'll fry some up after all.

As with tropical storms and hurricanes, we're getting hit with bands, so it'll rain really hard, then it'll let up. I don't think it's stop completely for the past 5 hours, but it lets up enough that I'm not worried about flooding--at least for my house. Other places, low lying places, may well flood, even with the letting up of rain.

So, so far, we're fairing well and hope to continue to do so.
