Week 6 #Documentary

As I write this, millions of  Floridians are preparing for Hurricane Irma to make up its mind what path of unprecedented destruction it will make.  I spent an hour at the grocery store stocking up with ice and other supplies yesterday and several hours today looking for batteries and drinking water.  This is my first hurricane experience and I find it difficult to know who to pray for!  I don’t want it to harm my community but I certainly don’t wish it to harm others.  I drove above Interstate 75 this afternoon, to fulfill the “documentary” theme, and witnessed the line of evacuees heading north.  It appeared they were averaging 30 to 40 miles an hour.  They are in for a long drive to safety.

Week 2 #21 Hot and Steamy

Humidity in Florida this time of year is a given.  I dream of days gone by living in Iowa when we would have a cool front move through for a few days and I could throw open the windows to air out the house.  I don’t think I have had the windows and doors open to welcome cooler humid free days since February.  Moisture accumulates on the windows and doors almost every evening, it burns off during the day and returns again at night.  Easily entertained,  I decided to return to my childish ways and draw a heart on our “Hot and Steamy” windows.
