10.6.16

So this is a very different blog from my normal one... This is my first hurricane experience since living in Central Florida... Matthew is preparing his trip to Disney World and everyone is having a roller coaster of emotions about his arrival...

The media tries to keep us safe with up to the minute information but it also causes up to the minute panic as well... I saw gas stations run out of gas today... I saw empty shelves at the grocery stores and convenience stores in the past 24 hours...

As we were released from work today, we wished each other well and told everyone to stay safe, because thankfully we know when a hurricane is coming... But like a flood, or tornado or any other natural disaster, we have no idea what damage it will bring with it and what it will leave behind in it's wake...

So for now, Mom and I sit and watch Murder She Wrote ont he DVR and watch out the front window as the rains come and go and the almost eery silence, I almost wish it would start so it can be over...

More as it comes...
