Isaias, it’s coming – Preparation & Prayers That It Weakens

I don’t mind the rain.  I’ve never been in an area where floods were a concern.  It’s always the winds that bother me the most.  Hurricane Isaias has been downgraded to a tropical storm but the winds are supposed to be furious.  What kind of name for a hurricane is Isaias?  I couldn’t even pronounce it until I heard it on TV.

I’m hearing conflicting stories about where this tropical storm is going and who will be in its path.  The weather channel predicts the worst to be around midnight.  Why do these storms always hit our area at night when it is dark and you can’t see anything.

The media is useless.  Each time I see a newscaster in a storm hanging onto a lamppost, I remember watching a newscaster in a storm trying to walk against the wind and unbeknown to him, a couple were walking behind him like nothing was happening.  The media will find one tree down on a house and that one tree will be the highlight of the news for days.  It is all about ratings I guess.  I often wonder if some of them feel stupid doing these stunts.  Don’t get me wrong, there are some really good newscasters that are in dangerous areas doing a great job and I commend them.

I worry about the pups.  My main objective would be to keep them safe.  They cannot protect themselves so we have to.  The pups seem unsettled this evening.  Maybe they can feel my nervousness.

I packed an emergency bag with some of our necessities such as clothes, underwater, and socks.  It’s in the truck.  It will be called “my just in case bag”.  BooBoo and I took a walk around the campground and campers don’t seem to be worried.  Campers are not even bringing in their awnings.

We have everything that can blow away secured.  When we lived at our sticks and bricks home, I worried about trees coming down on the house.  Our site is an open area.  No big trees anywhere near us.  That is a plus.  We have big and small rigs on both sides of us.

Hubby thinks we will miss the worst of it.  It is usually me with the glass half full attitude.  Wish us luck.  I’ll post the outcome in the morning.

The wind gusts are picking up now.  The storm is getting closer.

God Bless, Stay Safe and Be Kind to Every Kind like my bag says.
