Getting ready for Matthew
Today Donna took me out grocery shopping, and the main focus was preparing for Hurricane Matthew. Here in Leesburg we are safe from storm surge and the dreaded eye-wall, but we expect high winds, heavy rains, and personally I expect the power to go out. It's gone out a couple of times, so this storm should have no trouble taking it out again. I picked up another case of water, but otherwise I think we're OK. Randy always has the place well-stocked so even if we lose power or a tree falls across the road and we're stuck here, we should be alright. We brought our potted plants in close to the house and cleared off the back deck. The boat will have to ride it out in its dock, but it is tied off at several points, it has a sturdy cover, and the bumpers are in place. More than that we cannot do!
