I hope all are safe I haven't been paying attention to tv much today.  Worked on a janome harmony that i got for my sister in Fla. went to ups store to mail it away only to find out they would charge me 70$ to pack and ship no way am I paying that the machine has only one zig zag foot missing everything else.  Then went to movies with DH to see Taken 2 which we had free passes for.  Everyone stay safe and out of storms way.

The storm is hitting - hope all have battened down the hatches and are fully prepared.  Should anyone need anything - please do not be afraid to ask!  We can get anything to you that you might need.  Get those quilts ready to keep you and yours warm.  Fill all the jugs you have with water... you won't believe how much you need it till you don't have it (been there done that and learned my lesson).  Batteries too - make sure you have enough - that is if you can still get them.  

The news for the east coast is not looking good - they are saying now that the storm in the 90s did not hit land and this one definitely is going to ...

Prayers Prayers Prayers!!!

Oh all our friends out east ,Please take this serious, we all worry that this is going to be bad. Store water , get batteries , blankets , warm clothes, non perishable foods ,If any of you need anything to help let us know . Make sure you have toilet paper  and tissues ,All your meds .  You all are getting so much warning ,we out there in the middle don't get much when our storms hit ,so we have to keep it ready all the time in the warmer seasons.  Just please stay safe  we will be sending thoughts and prayers to all of you .

I see today that they have placed the western portion of VA in the high alert area.  Previously we weren't in the warning areas.  This one is shaping up to be really nasty.

We must all rey that it changes course and goes out to sea.

Nana, I am praying for you. Gosh, If I had that coming at me, I would get the hell out of Dodge. You might consider that. Do you live on higher ground?

I live on the western side of VA with lots of mountains around me.  Don't live in a flood plain.   The biggest concern that I will have is power outages and downed trees.

I understand that there has already been a state of emergency issued for Va. and the storm isn't even really close yet.  I guess we will see as things pan out over the next couple of days how badly VA will be affected.

I usually don't have to worry about hurricanes.  I live pretty far inland.  One good thing about hurricanes is that you have plenty of warning.   I couldn't deal with living in tornado alley.   Those things give very little warning.

Nana,I have a granddaughter in Fairfax, I don't get to talk to her  (Mothers  Issues) ,but I worry about her all the time.

To Frances as one who lives in the Tornado zone, we may get 10 min warning at the most . but we are so use to the conditons ,that most of us ,know and keep on the look out.  We do have alarms that go off when one has been spotted in our area. The dogs hate them , makes my poor old gal howl ...

Barbara,

I love you all lots but i think you are all crazy the worst we have ever had was in 1987 where wind gusts were as much as 110 mph, but it hasnt been anywhere near that since (thankfully).

Tornados Barbara you can keep, as much as i love you i dont want to share them with you.

lots of love

Francesxx

Its okay Barbara,

When they were dropping bombs in world war 2 people used to either hide down the underground railway stations or under the table, well you guessed it no underground so i will be living under the table.

lots of love
