After 20 years of practicing Hurricane Preparedness, your mind simply cannot drop it because you live in Tennessee. And when you get to see the cone of uncertainty telling you will be visited by a tropical depression, the brain goes ALARM!
The Hurricane trunk has been pulled out and contents checked. The generator is ready and gas has been bought. Pantry was pretty well stocked last weekend and the rest is oiled and loaded.
The hilarious part is we are expecting 20 mph winds or as it is called in SoFla, a light breeze. Not so funny for my brain? Nothing here is built to Miami Dade Hurricane Code. I keep telling it that we do not expect 75 mph winds anytime soon unless a tornado shows up, but the sucker is still churning. Oh well, it will eventually pass, probably when the temp drops below the 45 degree mark.
Now, Winter Preparedness? I am so gonna get it, it ain’t funny.
