BILL IS COMIN' TO TOWN!

This is POST #100! Yipee, hurray!! And in anticipation of the announcement of the winner of my give-away, look who's headed our way! It's Hurricane Bill!


I have to go to the city for the day! So because of Bill's arrival tomorrow, I've dragged all the heavy lawn furniture to a sheltered corner near the deck, and took all the lights, gnomes, bird houses, etc out of the flower gardens and tucked them in the shed. We have lots of food in the house, propane for the gas barbeque, extra drinking water and batteries. So, I guess I'm prepared. The rest is up to Mother Nature and Father God!

It's a Category 2 hurricane, but because of our beautiful hot, humid weather lately, it could upgrade! Juan, which hit Halifax HARD a couple of years ago, by-passed the south shore of NS. But I have to say, I'm feeling a little aprehensive about this one!

I'm prepared for the worse but hoping for the best. Pray that Bill will blow itself off to sea.

If you don't hear from me for a couple of days, it could be because of power outages. But I shall return as soon as possible with the name of the lucky winner of my 100th Post Give-away and a picture of his or her prize!

Stay safe, bloggies!

It looked like it was trudging out to sea this morning. Praying so for your benefit. A bad storm put our power out two nights ago for nine hours. Here's wishing you a great safe week-end.
