Tropicat Storm Ernesto, what a joke!!!

For the last two days I have had nothing but news about the storm and now they are predicting again that it will turn into a Hurricane when it leaves Florida and churns across the Atlantic to the Carolinas. Hurricane Center Forcaster puzzled about the outcome.

My day is is going well, Tropical Storm Ernesto did no damage and I am bilging out the water in my boat as I type. I still get gusts of winds and it cool this morning. My exercise classes at Bally Total Fitness were canceled but that is OK. I didn't bother to put up shutters but do have to put my lawn furniture back to my deck. I had it to the side against the fence. I refused to wait in line for gas yesterday and was going to pump out gas from my boat for my generator but the electric did not go out. After Wilma came on my birthday Oct 24,I bought that generator after 10 days of no electric, bought gas and was going to put it in when the lights came on so it's still brand new. I got FEMA to pay me back along with a chainsaw and a wet vacuum.------------------------

How has the storm affected you?

Thanks for your response, Margo I hope you have recovered by now. I have a daughter that lives in Charlotte but that was too far to the west for any damage.

Are you like fine wine that has agedinwood, I would love to taste you!
