Poetry Friday - Evacuation Time (Or, Hunker Down Time...)

September 7, 2017

Tags: Poetry Friday, hurricane

[UPDATE - We're actually staying put for time being though hubby's work will update plans Sat. We can leave quickly and head out backroads this weekend if Irma changes her mind and heads this direction. Thanks for all the good wishes!]

Greetings from the Coast... Well, not for long. We are knee-deep in hurricane evacuation preparations, so I will only be able to join Poetry Friday in spirit this week! (& maybe next week....)
Prayers for all those who have experienced Irma's devastation, and for those in her path, and for those still recovering from Harvey.

Please visit Matt at Radio, Rhythm & Rhyme for the Roundup!
(And congratulate him on Flashlight Night!)

    Best wishes, Robyn. I've been wondering if you are in that "possible" path!

    Thanks so much, Linda. My family is sprinkled all over central Florida, and we're likely to be under mandatory evacuation here in SC Sat. a.m. (Hoping to scoot out before crazy road reversals and such.) Will go to other family in north Georgia, but Irma appears to be on her way there, too... - :0!

    Travel charms to your sprinkled Florida family & for you.
    We too are potentially under this wicked wind.
    Filled 15 sandbags the other day.
    Have a plan B for high-tailing it far awaaaaay, also, should that be the wisest.
    Will know more soon after the turn at poor Cuba.
    Prayers for everyone who has already experienced this & will going forward.

    Been thinking of my PF Florida Family, Jan - please stay safe! We are actually not being evacuated for the time being, so will hunker down and watch the tracks. Gassed up and ready to go if we need to. Thoughts and prayers for you and yours...!
