Hurricane Douglas Approaches

Today is hurricane prep day since Douglas is expected to start giving us its effects tonight. Lou and I cleared out the lanai and yard. I went to Mom’s house and put all her lanai chairs in her garage, and secured other loose items. I posted on Facebook earlier.. My impulse is to chock it up as hey I’ve done this a bunch of times growing up, we got this. But there’s no comfort in that past experience because stuff here isn’t built to withstand supertyphoons. So…. here we go….
