Well, no one knows where Hurricane Dorian will go. Waiting to see who will get this devastating storm is like watching doom coming one inch at a time. The storm when it hits is bad enough but most people don’t think about the aftermath. Electricity can be out for weeks or more. The heat and humidity are agonizing. Food goes bad, people have to leave their homes and if they have pets so many places wont’ take them. Then there is the rainfall and the flooding.
Weeks are spent cleaning up debris and if your home is damaged it may take months or more to get things fixed. I still prefer a storm I can see coming to a tornado. At least my family can get to safety.
Please keep the people in the path of Hurricane Dorian in your prayers and good thoughts. This will not be fun or easy.
Below are photos from the storm that hit us several years ago. We were blessed. Some people lost everything.
The tree limbs went through the house into the great room. Things were all wet inside. We are high enough that we did not flood. Just wet from rain.

This will be our 5th one since coming to Florida.
I don’t envy you. I hope that there are no more coming our way.
We are in the busiest month for hurricanes.
So true and there are at least two more out there but they seem to be headed away from any shore. Dorian, however, has tested everyone’s patience while stalled and just devastated the Bahamas. I hope this northern trend with the others continues. We expect this every year but it doesn’t make it any easier. I guess if frustration is too much we will have to move but we love it here.
