It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Here & Now

Odds are the weather is not going to get better , not yet... it has to be horrible first.
I have never been in a real Hurricane, much less alone in one so the cats and I will probably do what will be the best thing for us to do ... Run Away.

 Not sure where and when ( soon) but that is the story for now.
I will not be blogging .. unless it is something so big and lets hope to God that there is nothing that Big or Bad that needs blogging ...

If I ever had doubts about living alone in Florida ... this settled a few thoughts in my mind.

Thank you, love to all, Candice & the Cats

Please head the warnings, and if necessary go inland Candice, bundle up the cats and head out.
I hope you stay safe dear friend.

I am inland.
I will Linda ... you will hear me shouting with joy that it is over and I still have a roof over my head.
Un besa para tu, Sandra .. miss you very much !

Linda deV said...

Run and do it quickly.....that's what my heart says. Just be safe and talk to you when it's over.

Thinking of you and all the people that have been / will be affected.
Stay safe!

There are evacuations in Florida but not where I am ... I am almost in Georgia so I doubt Jacksonville will be evacuated but the beaches are definitely going to be..

It is such a massive storm that I am not sure how much safer the West Coast is going to be .

I will just hope that people don't lose their homes and lives and pets and that I can move back to NY asap :)

I woke this morning amazed that it was not raining. Then I realized that it is not time yet ... more days to dread.
I am making use of this time though .. plans are being made.

Unknown said...

Stay safe. Maybe it won't be too bad inland?

NotesFromAbroad said...

Yes, it will be bad but apparently the closer to the coast, the worse it is...

Sharon said...

Please take care, sending may positive thoughts that you and the cats get through this okay.

I am going to be staying in an apt at my landlord's home. He and his wife will be there, it won't be horrible to know I am with people who know what to do with weather like this .. as long as there is no flooding.
I am kind of above the ground and the ground slopes away in the back ... so that has not been a big fear here in the condo .. just the wind and rain ...

Take care Candice - hoping you will be safe.

I'm so glad to read that you'll be with your landlord and wife. I wondered if you might go to your daughter's so I'm happy you won't be alone. Thinking safe thoughts for you and the kitties.

NotesFromAbroad said...

That all changed. The landlord has a daughter who has been away and she came back and she is staying in the place that I would have stayed in.
But there was a happy meeting with my new next door neighbors and the cats and I will have a hopefully safe haven if we need it.
