    We have a storm (typhoon) headed our way. Right now we are at a COR3, soon to be upgraded to COR1 tomorrow afternoon. I have done all I can to prepare for this storm. Hopefully I have enough supplies to get us (Courtney and I...hubby is at sea) for us to manage thru this, should it become as powerful as they think it will be. Power will most likely go out, as it usually does on a daily/weekly basis.

    I'm hoping this thing blows around us and we don't get what they say we are going to get.

    So, if you don't hear/see me in the next couple of days, you know what's going on. I do have a landline phone, so that's a good thing. Not sure if phone lines will go out, but we also have the cell phones which are constantly on charge.

    Terri,

    I'll be saying prayers for you for a safe ride through and for your DH for peace of mind as I'm sure he'll be thinking of you both without him there.

    Blessings,
    Jen

    I'll be thinking of you Terri - I saw you were offline and you're usually there when I check in in my morning. Hope you are safe, girl! And Courtney and kitties too. :D

    I'm still here. They are saying it's supposed to hit Wed at 5am, that's about 7am Tuesday for East Coasters. So, we just have to wait and see.
    I have all my fans set up so I can blow it back out to sea. :)

    Hang on tight Terri! Have you gone through this before since you have been on that rock? How scary! Will keep you in thoughts and prayers.

    Nope, have never experienced a typhoon before. Talking to the locals, they say it's the same as a hurricane, but the winds are worse because of this being an island.
    No worries. I have pretty much all I need.
    I'm running for more bottled water in the morning and a couple more bags of cat food just in case this does hit and we lose power for a while. Can't have kitties without food!

    I'm thinking good and happy thoughts and hope it blows by quickly and with little impact on you, your family and everyone else there! I hate seeing these events unfold. Make sure you put some candy in that safety stash!! :)

    Stay safe Terri, and line up some hand work to do.
    Will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. We have been through a couple badk ones, no power for a week once, so just hang tight , and be prepared.

    Egads Terri- is your life ever dull? Take care of you and sending you lots of hugs and well wishes. If I am ever stuck on an island, you are so the person I want to be with- you have tackled every scenario possible. love ya- cathy p.s. It's a very good thing to keep those kittycats fed, you are too thin for them to munch on. You'd be a small snack.

    I hope it is not as bad as they are predicting...can you get a hold of dry ice to keep your food ok in the fridge for a few more days, just in case? Keeping fingers crossed for you and yours!!!

    I have been hearing about the weather out that direction and I thought about you. Glad to hear you are as prepared as you can be for the unknown. Will keep sending positive vibes your way! Keep the kitties fed, candles handy and the manual can opener near by!

    I'm sure you've heard of the butterfly effect so I am chasing butterflies in the hopes that their wingflutters will change the course of the typhoon away from you and back out to sea.

    I went through three hurricanes in one summer, and it is scary to see the damage. I'll keep hope that it misses you!

    Jst found this link re the weather warning. http://www.srh.noaa.gov/wwamap/wwatx...wa=gum&wwa=all

    It doesn't look as deadly as what the Phillipines is getting thank God, but I still wouldn't like to be in it. :shock: I pray that Terri, Courtney and cats are all OK.
