Hurricane Ian Uncertainty


There is never anything straightforward about a hurricane’s path, so there is always a lot of uncertainty. There is preparation that is done each season, so you are ready to go and do not need to fight the crowds at the stores.  Things like food, water, batteries, etc. 

A few days before, it’s smart to fill your car with gas, get gas for the generator, get cash  and for your sanity, always get last minute snacks and alcohol if you do need to hunker down :-)

And then there is the decision of whether hurricane shutters are needed.  We now have a motorized hurricane strength roll down shade for the lanai, so that makes it easy to secure all our outdoor furniture.  The window shutters are metal and need to be secured with screws, so it’s a big job that you only want to do if necessary. So we wait a bit, to follow the updated track.  But not too long to beat the outer bands with rain and wind.

Finally to add to the “fun” we are trying to travel to a wedding and may end up following the hurricane as it passes.  I guess there is never a good time and I hate to wish it upon others, like the panhandle, but Hurricane Ian - please go west!


  1. Stay safe! I hope you make it to the wedding without incident.

    1. We will be following it as soon as it is out of here. Hopefully!

    1. Thanks! I am getting used to it and not nearly as stressed as Irma. Guess I am a Floridian now.

  3. Have you ever had to evacuate? I hope you and your property stay safe.

    1. Hurricane shutters going up. It seems to be coming right at us, but we only have to worry about the wind, not the storm surge, so we will be fine.

  4. I hope it misses you..hopefully to the west..Hope you don't have to evacuate...There are a lot of "hopes" there...

    1. We won’t evacuate because the storm surge doesn’t concern us. Our house is built to withstand category 5. Riding this one out 🙏


  5. Thinking of you - stay safe.
