The hurricane is coming!

It is very overcast this morning. The wind is blowing. TV says only 10 miles an hour at this point. Looks and feels like double that.

News indicates it may be a tropical storm or at worst a category 1. Whatever it is, it will hit sometime tonight or early tomorrow morning. Right now it is still over Cuba.

Again, this is my first hurricane. I am starting to feel a bit ominous. Intersting.

I bought 2 big flashlights yesterday. And more water. I also bought some sort of self sufficient radio that provides weather reports. At some point we will lose electric power. So this radio should come in handy. The real reason I went for the $50 to buy it was that the label said it would also charge cell phones.

I stayed in and worked last night. Never went out. Should have. For sure I will not be going out tonight!

I have already talked to some of the locals this morning. None of them are concerned. It is just going to be a windy rainstorm from their perspective. If it gets to a 1, maybe some tree branches will fall. Such confidence! But they have been here before!

Talk with you tomorrow. Hopefully!
