Tropical Storm Fay

Well, I got ready! Since hubby has been in Kansas all month I haven't been watching that much TV, especially on my days off. I enjoy the peace and quiet. I didn't even know we had a storm out there until I made the mistake of stopping to grocery shop at Wal-Mart Sunday afternoon. The store was packed like it was the day before Christmas!

I asked the cashier if it was always like that on Sundays (making a mental note NOT to go back) and she said it was because it was the first day of school tomorrow (Monday) and everyone was stocking up for the storm. I looked at her and said, storm? What storm? Then glanced at my pitiful groceries of ice cream, sandwich wraps, lunch meat and cheese. If the power went out I'd have to eat the ice cream first.

So the next day, on my way to work and the radio announcer confirmed there was indeed a storm out there, I left work early to take care of business. Gassed up my car, dropped a package off at the post office for next day delivery to hubby, then proceeded to stock up. That included a big container of drinking water, milk, a bag of cat food and two cans of soup. LOL...oh, let's not forget I moved some plants up against the carport so they wouldn't become flying missiles. Oh, and I shaved my legs!

I left work early today because I didn't want to be on the road when the worst hit. Course, I was.

Well at least you will have smooth legs if by chance something happens to you and someone has to rescue you. Make sure you put on your pretty underwear too, you never know who might see them!! Don't want to be caught in the granny panties!

You sound like me, I never watch the news so I would be the one not knowing what was going on either.

LOL...so glad you won't be caught with hairy legs during a weather disaster! For me I would also have to make sure my hair and makeup were done! ;-)

LOL...my granny panties are my pretty panties! And if I have my way no one's going to see them unless I'm dead:)

That, too, Cheri! We ladies have to have our priorities straight:)

I hope you were O.K. I can't believe it made landfall 4 times in Florida.
