I’m including this post in Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop and I’m thankful that we have so many satellites watching the weather. I, purrsonally, purrfer hurricanes to things like tornadoes, volcanic eruptions and earthquakes because those satellites give us days, and in the case of Irma a week advance notice. They purrvide us with plenty of time to plan and purrpare. At this moment, our hurricane shutters are up, we’ve decided to stay and we have 5 gallon jugs full of water, which is for drinking purrposes, not bathing. Today or tomorrow, Purrseidon will snoopervise the staff as they harvest star fruit, persimmons and mangoes, which high winds tend to blow away. While she does that, I shall snoopervise our chef making cookies and brownies, which are excellent hurricane treats – for one thing, they do not require refrigeration and there is the possibility that we could lose electricity and the internet. Thus all the camping lanterns, candles, and things have been sorted out, already.
I am thankful that we are staying home for Irma… For Matthew, we retreated inland and I was forced to endure the attentions of Cricket, an overly amorous cockapoo … I am NOT that sort of tom!!! Being sociable and friendly with dogs is one thing, having the stuffings licked out of me is simply too much! Oh, the glare I gave her!
I am thankful that we are well stocked with provisions, have a competent staff and that I won’t be dealing with Ms. Cricket during Irma. Oh, and I’m also thankful that hurricane strength winds are unlikely here, though we will probably get a tropical storm.
