Good morning. Tis cloudy here with temps in the upper sixties. And oh yes, it's raining off and on. Not very heavy though. Good news though, tomorrow should be bringing us the sunshine and warmer temps.
I've had no news yet about DIL Janet's nephew, but I did get a call from Deanne that her best friend was just diagnosed with cancer. My heart goes out to this woman. She's had one tragedy after another these past couple of months. Gosh, when does it end? My prayers go out to you folks. Just let me know what I can do to help.
It's quiet here at my house. I've been following the hurricane news on the Weather Channel. The flood threat alone is catastrophic. They've been showing models of what the storm surge means and how much water it can bring. I took these two photos of the TV screen. The first photo is at about six feet, and the second photo is at nine feet.
Along with the devastation from this hurricane, they are also forecasting possible tornadoes in this region. Twenty to thirty inches of rainfall is possible for much of this area, with some places maybe getting as much as forty inches of rain.
Yesterday afternoon, it looked as though Florence was making a West/Southwest turn. This morning it looks like it is turning again to North/Northeast (inland). Already the electric power companies are forecasting that one to two and a half million people might be without power for weeks. It looks like this storm is about to break a lot of records.
On a lighter note, let me share a couple of photos that I took of Pogo with his new toy. Pogo does not play with toys. He never had them before, and I have not been able to teach him how to play with them. He will play with them as long as someone else is playing, but as soon as we stop playing, Pogo stops too.
While we were shopping the other day, he showed an interest in this toy, so we bought it. He doesn't actually play with it, but he has been sharing his chair with it.
Can you tell that I love watching Pogo sleep? It makes my heart happy to see him sleep and not have bad dreams. He hardly ever has them anymore. I especially love seeing him cuddle with one of his toys. Let's face it, I just love watching him!
Now I think I'll go read a few blogs before I start looking for some mischief to get into. So, till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
