This is the time of year and especially as we head into prime hurricane season in September, that we ride the roller coaster of weather reports, hurricane tracking and the unknown.  I have learned to be prepared, but also go about your life, until it is pretty definite that something is coming.  And that might change too.

On Friday, when all this tropical storm/hurricane talk was starting, we had plans to drive south to Punta Gorda for lunch.  It looked threatening, but ended up being a pretty nice day for lunch on the waterfront.  The stormy weather held off until later and we had a great time exploring a new place.

On Saturday morning, it was still unclear where the storm was headed, so I stocked up a bit at the grocery store and had a relaxing day between the off and on storms.

By Sunday, it became clear we were not going to get much beyond a few storms from the outer bands.  One of my favorite things to do, when the gulf is volatile, is to head to the beach and see the waves.  They were rolling in with a bit of force and you could see something brewing way out in the gulf, but luckily, for this round, we were the fortunate ones.  On to the next.   

Happy Monday!

  8. I happen to be next. Laura is coming straight for my home and lakehouse. Most think that if you’re not on the coast, it won’t hurt you. This one is looking like It’s going to dump inches and inches of rain. Not sure I can handle one more flooding at lakehouse 😢. AND this morning workers are laying my entire house with new flooring...meaning it looks like all work will come to a stop right in middle of job...sigh****.
