I know Hurricane Irene hasn’t even hit the east coast yet but here in Philadelphia it’s been raining all morning long.
It made me realize that I have yet to cross off use an umbrella from my list so when I had to
run hobble an errand I figured I might as well get my underused umbrella out and break him in.
I expect to spoil him with attention for the better part of the next four days as I’ve a lot of things necessary to do outside of the house, including my sister’s baby shower this Sunday, if Irene allows. I just hope he will stand up to the 100 mph wind they are calling for which, after realizing how flimsy he is, I somehow doubt.
I know there is a strong possibility that things are going to be so much worse for some of you. So, to all of my east coast friends, and those of you in North Carolina, more specifically, please be very proactive and stay safe.
I will be thinking of and praying for all of you and your families during the mega storm expected to hit the coastline sometime Saturday morning. I really hope that she changes her path and won’t unleash her epic anger in your neighborhoods.
I wish you all the very best in sanity, safety and pray that your homes are left undamaged.
