Hurricane Sandy

Hurricane Sandy is headed my way. 

Where will she go?  There's a 50-50 chance the weather gurus are right or wrong.

I am in the boonies on the east coast of Florida, south of St Augustine and north of Palm Coast. 

Sorry you haven't heard from me. I've been wore out exhausted and I have poison sumac or something on my skin.  I am slathering Aveeno Anti-Itch Concentrated Lotion on anything that itches. So mostly I have a pinky hue about me. 

I am also washing with Aveeno Active Naturals Fragrance Free Skin Relief Body Wash.

Aveeno is made with oatmeal which is a natural skin relief. I guess by now I smell like breakfast. 

I am also trying to wash anything and everything in the motorhome to get rid of any possible oil residue from the poison sumac. 

Yucky poo. 

I feel like a complete idiot!  My gas tank is not full and I've always kept it full until I arrived here in Florida, been real busy, not had time, I forgot, the usual excuses. Here comes hurricane Sandy. 


Can be dreadful or a welcome relief...  I forget which...

Anyhow here comes Hurricane Sandy.  I need to go out in the current rain storm and buy gas.  Grrrrrrrr...

Otherwise I run the risk of being able to buy none if the power goes out.  In my current state, I won't have enough to start the generator which won't start on less than a half tank and stops on a quarter tank. 

OR should I just run like mad.  I am tired of hurricanes, giving my Caribbean past. But I feel wretched. Just plain old wore out, beat down. 

More (or less?) later.


  1. Lets hope it keeps well offshore. We have plans to head for Mayport, Fl on the water at the Naval Station on Tues.

    Definitely a good idea to get fuel-just in case:(

  2. When we were having wildfires in Colorado, I made sure I had a full tank of gas and sometimes disconnected the water and sewer at night, it case I had to leave in a hurry. I hope the storm passes by you - they are talking about New York or New Jersey, but you will probably still get a lot of rain.
