11 JUL 2011 BEACH
Oh my goodness it has been so long since I have posted a blog I am not sure that I know how to do this. Uh oh, I seem to be talking out loud and thinking to myself, but someone might actually read this. Now let's see if a photo can be posted of my beloved Atlantic. Oh, and don't forget to post that thing that Gams always has on her blog-- the Atlantic swirleys and don't forget the local radar.

Thanks Gams:

I understand your tears. Just so happy you are ok. Anxious to hear all about your experience with Big Girl Irene. She was not very kind to alot of folks. I will check back later.

Good Morning,
We are all okay. Will write more when have reliable internet. I cried a lot before and during storm, but I had to start crying again when I came here and saw so many beautiful and kind. Thank you all so very much.

Ditto sentiments with all the above, Huri...

Hoping your abode is spared from much wrath with Irene and no other storms come close this season.

Best wishes to you, friend!

Hi ECF,
Love you.
This storm had a ring of dry air in her yesterday like something I've never seen in a 'cane this size. She was wedded to dry air. A good thing. The worst part of the storm looks to be over your stomping ground right now.

So sorry this had to happen. The water will cause untold damage, making the aftermath worse than the storm. But when is it not?

Keep your chin up.

Huri just keep your spirits up. It won't belong before Big Girl Irene is history. Hope she just left you with a little sand on your doorstep.

Huri, following Gams. When in doubt .... get out. I think you would be wise to make that decision. The water this storm will bring you will not be nice. I don't know how close you are to the beach but the tides are not going to be happy tides. Now I know you will make the best decision for you but choose wisely. You know we are all here and if you need any help you know where to find us. Lots of hugs.
Hunker down and stay safe!
Hugs,
Sarah

Huri,

Like the rest of your friends here, I too am now a little worried about your area.

I know you will get out, you always do and surrounded by water like you are that is a good thing.

Your NY sister may want to join you this time.

We are watching this with you.

Hoping the best for you. Everything still is so "iffy", but there's at least a chance you could end up on the dry side. Will be watching and waiting for word from you.

Hi huri,
Well, good grief. Guess if you have to you could take a trip to Dollywood or that Elvis place - Graceland - Good road trip music.
:)

I am toying with humor here but I know you do not like these storms. Won't be long till you know if you need to go.

Well, I just caught the bug that was flying around the room and put it outside, and Alphie came in from his late night jaunt, so time for me to sleep. Take care, dear ECF.

Dear huripoetfriend, no doubt you're informed, prepared and have a plan. I'm thinking of you and sending you good vibes of safety and peace of mind. Information is the key to not being afraid. Love to you, the Greek god and your family.

Hi, Huri ~

Saw your post over at Bug's. I don't have much advice to give that's any better than anyone else's, but I can at least tell you a couple of things I do without fail.

1. Follow the Chicago Way. Evacuate early and often. Don't dither. If you leave and the storm goes to Nebraska or something, you'll know it very soon and can just turn around and go home. By leaving early, you'll also miss the worst of the traffic.

2. I was just looking at your map and it's harder for you to do what I always do, but I'll tell you anyhow. I always make motel reservations or whatever in two places, far, far apart. Like, San Antonio and Shreveport. Then, once I make a decision which way the danged storm is going, I go the other direction. Of course it doesn't always work - with Ike, I choose east because he was coming in west of us, but he kept moving east. Still, even though we got the winds, we were far enough inland for not much problem.

Being right on the coast is a problem, of course. Kind of hard to go east. ;-) Still, I'd head west instead of north, myself. At this point, anyhow. Could change some, depending on the track.

3. I already have all my treasures packed that I know I'd want to take in the car with me. They've been packed since April. All I have to do is pick them up and stow them in the back seat. Likewise Dixie's stuff. (She's got as much or more as I do.)

4. Little things mean a lot: bottled Starbucks' frappucino for when coffee can't be made. Battery powered fluorescent lanterns that are cool and can light up a whole room. I hve Coleman - I suppose there are others. Ummm... Water, even for evacuating, and good, healthy snacks. More protein, less sugar.

5. All those important papers, jewelry, etc. Cash. Fill up your car now. But you know all this - I'm just trying to think out loud.

If I think of anything else, I'll stop by. And don't feel bad about being nervous/anxious/hyped up/scared to death. Storms are no fun, period. If you need to just vent, stop by any of our blogs. We don't mind. ;-)

Hey ho, Huri across the Atlantic:)

Great to see you around again - damsons are small versions of plums.
Sour unless dosed with plenty of sugar, not my favourite, but my sister loves them!



Happy Sunday to you :)

Hi ECF,
Alphie's eyes are blue, and he's a little bit cross-eyed in his right eye. he acts more like a dog than a cat.
:)
He has been very quiet lately.

This enigma called Emily may not reorganize after she crosses Hispaniola, presuming the trough makes her turn as expected. Tomorrow and Thursday should tell the tale. I know you're ready just in case, and I will be thinking of you. And Gamms. (Hi, Gamms.)

Hi ECF! (and everyone)
Pretty funny joke shore posted. Marooned. LOL.
You know that invest 91L gots to develop first before it will reveal its path. I know you do. If it even develops. Glad you're keeping an eye on it.

Hope you're having a great weekend.

Well, aren't I a doofus. I typed you a nice response, wandered off and promptly erased it when I came back. Nice to know that I'm getting back into my usual routines. ;)

You know here in Texas we like to say "what goes around comes around". I like thinking that one day your bottle will "come around" somewhere - if not to Sandi's shore or Roz's boat, at least somewhere, found by someone with the good sense to let you know about it.

It was a pretty day here, but entirely too hot. I hate to say that, as barefoot's been having it worse than most of us, but my goodness - it's just no fun to be out at all. I did get lots of little errands done today - and came home from the market with a box of fresh, tree-ripened peaches. Nothing better than that!

I hope your weekend's lovely. Nice to see your radar back, too. Now I'll have a convenient place to watch Emily go swirling off into the Great Atlantic. ;)

Thanks Gams, that worked well. It has been so long since I posted or put up photos or images, I had some trouble, but I just went to your blog and right clicked, "Copy Image Location," then went back to my block and clicked the image thing and pasted it there!


Now I just hope that there was no real NEED for me to do this. Let's hope this ninety-whatever curves out to sea and leads the way for all the others to follow this year.

I was reading Roz Savage' blog just now. She's been inviting jokes in order to lighten the mood of her ocean row, and today this one was included:

A guy gets shipwrecked. When he wakes up, he's on a beach. The sand is purple. He can't believe it. The sky is purple. He walks around a bit and sees that there is purple grass, purple birds and purple fruit on the purple trees. He's shocked when he finds that his skin is starting to turn purple too. "Oh no!" he says. "I think I've been marooned!"

Hey WCF,
Those are VINCAS and they really thrive in full sun. At first I thought they were impatiens, which do best in shadier spots. This is the first year I have seen them in that beautiful purple colour, which I think is enhanced by the white center.

Can you hear me ECF?

Love these two photos. The beach looks inviting, especially to someone living in drought territory who has not seen the ocean for a couple years. I wanna go to the beach. Whine What are the purple flowers called?

Happy to see your blog up.

Huri!

I didn't see it, until I enlarged the photo. There it is! Such beautiful flowers!

I'm off in a half-minute to Mom's needlepoint group. I never went while she was with us because it was sort of "her thing". She never said I couldn't go, but it was clear she enjoyed having one or two groups that were "just hers". I'm just going to visit tonight, but next month I'll have her stash sorted out and will take some with me to share with the ladies.

And some I'll keep. Maybe I'll make your flowers into a needlepointed pillow!

Have a good evening - off I go.

ADD: Oh! I didn't see you'd been at my place. Of course you can post any photo you like. I'm getting so easy-going in my old age. ;-)

My computer "crashed" right after I put the photo up. Well, actually, the computer said, there has been a xyz but system has recovered. Then it totally went blank, but it restarted itself.

So there.

So nice to see you. It is cold and hot here.
