How is the weather now @Bunnylady? It looks like the storm should be reaching you about 8 tonight. 90% chance of tropical force winds.

She'll have this much again about Tuesday. YUM! This tree is loaded big time. They pick and hand to me. Nice friend!!
She might be REALLY happy to have you as a friend to take them. Kind of like people with a truck load of zucchini

Yeah, @Bunnylady you seem to be the target area -- maybe -- then it will continue my way. I have several black clouds now but, it's some scattered stuff (They say!) then clear, then store late night/early AM. We still need rain, just not all the rest of it. LOL Maybe some will go out to see instead. Nawwwhhhh.....that would be to good to be true.

@Baymule I did some cantaloupe in the dehydrator a couple days ago. You did not mention that I wasn't supposed to eat it all -- non stop. BUT they are smaller in volume with water gone. :D I'll be chowing down figs when next lope goes in.........

Waiting for time to be done for this canner of veg soup that's working.
Then out, if it's not pouring.

ETA: wrote about 4 hrs ago --- rain started and net stopped.:(

At this point, we're getting the usual splash-and-dash showers and thunderstorms. Need to wrap up whatever outside prep hasn't been completed. Did some last-minute shopping this morning; incredibly, there was still bread and bottled water in the stores!

Very unusual given circumstances. Of course, some days they buy as soon as it goes on the shelf, like TP. :lol: I'm good. Didn't leave my driveway. Soft off and on showers all day. A loaf of bread just finished baking. Hope the storm isn't bad there Bunnylady.

Of course -- probably both of us will have iffy net.

Need to run hay the goats -- you know, rain and room service. Will close coops, come in a fix some dinner to go with this bread. Smells good. Ahhh, may just have that hot bread & some butter!

Wide awake at 3:20 AM. Finally got up
Don't you just hate that!? For me it seems it's always when I go to bed late and really NEED to sleep. Once awake, might as well be up & at it. At least you had something to do there. Usually you're just pacing for daylight to do THAT list.

The storm came through here ... I've seen worse, which is a good thing. The preliminary bands carried a LOT of disturbance in some areas. Several tornados hit, not huge but, damage still. One in NC did a lot of damage in a trailer park, one confirmed dead, two missing. Crews there searching, etc. About 40-50 miles S of me....way N of Bunnylady. Another hit 15 miles S in VA and one 20 miles N of me. :(

Here, I got almost 5" of rain. My saving grace was no rain for almost a month until just last two days. That softened to top ground enough to allow this huge dump soak in and not run off to cause damages and flooding on roads. A walk about shows no damage that I see. Thankful for that. DID lose power for 7-8 hrs, just came back on about 45 min ago. Yep, right after I filled the generator with gas & started to plug into the meter connection. Bam -- ON. Nice.

I still had coffee this morning, compliments of instant, a jug of water, heat by a can of sterno and light by my headlamp. :lol: Sipped & watched it rain as daylight showed the wind blowing rains across the fields. Not much else to do. :idunno Right now it's sunny and nice.

Hope the rest of the E Coast members can chime in soon. Let us know you're ok!

Yeah, land falling hurricanes are no picnic. The last band before the eye wall had numerous tornadic cells in it; several communities around here have what appears to be tornado damage (but no deaths, as far as I know). We have a lot of branches down, but no damage to any structure that I've seen. Our power was out for about 12 hours. We ran the generator for a few hours, but (thankfully!) the electricity was back on before it got really warm, so, though the internet is still out, I'm sitting here in air-conditioned comfort typing this.

Coulda been a lot worse.
