okay she's a Cat 2. big fat hairy deal. I say this as someone who has lived through Andrew and Isobel although I did escape Katrina. and well I don't even count the two tai-fun I experienced in Yokosuka a bazillion years ago.
yeah.. right.. the grill is INSIDE, there are several pitchers of filtered water and tonight before I go to bed I will be filling the bathtub. I studiously avoided eating things that required no cooking for the last two days. (tonight I tried out my brand spanky new pampered Chef grill pan and press.. LIKE!)
do I really think we'll get slammed? not particularly. but.. better safe than sorry. I do have a generator but no spare gas. oh well, if it gets too bad I will offer the extra plugs to anyone with a gas can heheheh.
Am I worried? not really, no. although if I lose power during Doctor Who, heads WILL roll. and yes tomorrow am I will purposely schedule FB crops and what not to come due/live on Sunday or later . Priorities, ya Know?
anywho: the last , oh I dunno 6 -8 weeks or so I noticed something.. every once in a while I remember that my Homeowners association kinda likes it when we maintain our lawns. no biggie, it's not like I have an acre or anything. but when I actually go to LOOK.. its all nice and neat. hell the edge of the house and around the deck supports are like.. neat and trimmed and crap. I do NOT do the weedwhacker, I just cannot operate it. so for the last 18 months the side of the house and around the supports look..well..like crap. worse even. well today I found out my secret mow-er.. the guy from 2 houses down. Mind you I have never said 2 words to the guy before. so yeah, when John gets back.. he has some lawn mowing to do.
It's nice to see the little things people do.
