I don’t typically concern myself with hurricanes unless they are Category three or higher. The reason being that I am more than 50 miles from either coast, and hurricane damage with smaller storms is pretty much restricted to a mile or two of the ocean. Honestly, Florida gets thunderstorms every afternoon in the summer, and they often have winds of tropical storm strength. This far inland, it just isn’t a problem unless you live in a flood prone area or a mobile home, which I do not.
With that being said, the forecast on Sunday night isn’t looking good, and it looks like this hurricane will be a Cat 3 when I arrives in a couple of days. I spent Sunday before bed picking up all of the outdoor stuff. I am working for the next few days, so the wife is on her own.
At the hospital, we clear out a section of the hospital normally reserved for elective surgeries, and make it into a dorm of sorts for the staff who must work during the storm. That’s where I will be staying for the next three days. There may or may not be any posting. I have a couple on deck that I have already written, and they will likely be the only posts for the time being.
