I just heard the guy on The Weather Channel say “Amelia Island – look out, baby! 40 foot waves!”
Our new house has hurricane shutters. Who even knew that was a thing? We didn’t until we saw the bolts embedded around the windows and doors.
Here’s a blown-up photo of the new place under happy blue skies. There are metal panels that get secured by nuts to those bolts. I didn’t notice them in the garage but Sami did. I hope they ‘re light enough for 2 old coots like us to lift and take off without help.
I’m sitting in a hotel room in Los Angeles watching The Weather Channel while I pack to fly home today. I wasn’t too worked up about the hurricane before but I am now. I have got to turn off this TV. Thanks Weather Channel.
UPDATE: I wasn’t quick enough to shut off the TV and now I’m listening to the Fl governor giving a press conference – what a Gloomy Gus. Deadly winds … rip tides … beach erosion … tornadoes … flooding…”It’s never too early to evacuate.”
