Waiting


I have been contemplating a few RV related subjects for a blog, but events have overtaken my concentration.  We have abandoned planning the next trip, dealing with furniture quality issues, and the many other things we considered important.

Now we are mostly focused on Isaac.  While we are no strangers to bad weather, including hurricanes, we were just not prepared to deal with Isaac just a few months after moving in the new house.  In our former life of just a few months ago, we simply would have gotten out of town by heading for better weather.  Now we are waiting to see if Isaac will likely be a category 1 hurricane, as currently predicted or strengthen or maybe fade away.   The latter is definitely wishful thinking.

Our first reaction was still to bring over the motorhome and load it up and head out.  But with a minimum level hurricane, we are rethinking that choice.  Our house is built to the latest hurricane standards and should handle a category one storm without any problems.  Then there is our daughter’s family to consider.  So for now we wait and see what develops.  It is Anneke’s and Victoria’s first hurricane and grandma prefers to stay close to Victoria.

It is good to have that motorhome standing by in case we all have to get out of Dodge!

We've left Tampa heading North but we're still along the coast and are watching.

Your little View is darling and it will take you safely anywhere you need to go I'm sure.

At least you have a viable way to get out of Dodge if need be. Hope it isn't necessary.

Understanding your concerns, we'll keep hoping that this hurricane doesn't come your way.

Thank goodness for your escape pod if you need to run for the hills.

Saying prayers for all of you in the line of Isaac. Glad you have a backup plan. You never know what a hurricane will decide to do.

We're definitely keeping on eye on that storm and want to hear from all of you in it's path so we know everything is okay. Good luck to you.

Gelukkig is jullie huis daarop gebouwd. Althans dat begrijp ik uit het verhaal.Hoop maar dat Isaac een beetje uit jullie buurt blijft.
