It’s coming. Clouds from the leading edge of hurricane Ian advanced overhead as the sun set the sky sparking in wonder as well as concern. How close it will come to us is still not known, but current forecasts predict winds 40-50 mph in our area and 8-12 inches of rain. If it veers to the right just a bit we can expect 70+ mph winds. Potential problems include tree damage, power outages, and tornadoes.
Much of our preparation is completed, and tomorrow I will put up the storm shutters and clear out the lanai of objects that could be damaged, or could cause damage if blown about by the wind. We have plenty of food and water, the generator is ready to go, the weather radio is working, and we have bedding for our safe room should it be necessary to take refuge. Now we wait, prepared, wary, but not worried.
