I'm up this morning watching the local weather and checking our county emergency preparedness site. We are in an area that is expected to flood. While I'm toying with the idea of moving all the furniture upstairs, I realize we are out of coffee creamer. When it rains it pours.
But on the other hand my hair looks great today. We had dinner with friends last night and I spent some extra time on it. I don't want to be one of those poor women you see being rescued by the police or National Guard who look tragic. I may be a flood victim but I don't have to be a style victim...not yet anyway.
We are paying attention now.
I'm packing a bag just in case we have to evacuate, imagining which pieces of furniture I'm going to want to haul upstairs, estimating how much time it would take to save my books, and hoping the power doesn't go out. I don't want to do all that in the dark.
My next big decision is rain boots: pink swirlies or polka dots?
This is what is directly on the other side of my backyard fence:
