Dolly is on her way, promising to dump torrential rains, damaging winds, floods, and more. They are predicting electric will go out and houses will heat up quickly without air conditioning. The roads will flood due to lack of drainage systems here (the streets ARE the storm drains!).
So far, we've had some slow rains, but not much more. Nevertheless, we know Dolly is coming.
We have gassed up the vehicles, put sandbags in front of both doors, purchased water and nonperishable foods, been to the bank, and stocked up on prescription medications. So we are set.
Now we watch...and wait.
I'll be posting hurricane news alerts as long as I have internet access.
Thanks for praying-especially for our elderly, and for those who will be isolated when the waters rise.
