Watches and Warnings

Up and down the east coast and could go on for days.

Having lived through Sandy in 2012, warnings and watches get my attention in a way they didn’t before. It’s not that I was ever cavalier about being in the path of bad weather, but it’s different now. And frankly, compared to so many others, I was one of the lucky ones in 2012.

We have family and friends up and down the east coast. I’m sure you do too.

I have already reached out to everyone I know to offer them a spare bedroom in my house, but no one has taken me up on that offer. Everyone is hunkering down, getting out the hurricane shutters and guarding their homes.

All I can really say is that I am wishing everyone in this storm’s path an easy time.

Please join me.

    I keep checking on my friends in Florida. The internet is great for that.

    I do, and I also have offered my home to relatives and colleagues in the storm's path. Everyone seems determined to remain in place, and have assured me they have plans in place and that years of history have prepared them. As Rona, I continue to touch base.

    With multiple properties down south, several waterfront, my interest is quite high in Florida. Unfortunately, the media hypes things to an extent of causing unnecessary panic. Should you be prepared, yes. Should you leave the area, that depends on your comfort level. I always say, be safe and do what your gut says you should do. But I too was watching all weekend what was a planned Cat 5 direct hit back on Friday, to now likely some storm surging on the coastal areas and rain, most people should be fine. Tomorrow morning we will know more. My realtor friends say all is calm there now in coastal central Florida. I think we got lucky, but enough with the 24/7 coverage raising everyone's blood pressure to basically garner extra ratings. Hurricane's are too unpredictable and people will become complacent when the storm doesn't hit, causing more harm in future warnings when they are ignored.

    My parent house down in Palm Beach was directly in the oath for a while. Glad they are still up here with us. My heart breaks for all those in the Bahamas - they took the brunt for two whole days!
