Better Safe Than Sorry August 26, 2012

We’ve been keeping one eye on the eye of the storm as Tropical Storm Isaac whips up the wind and waves while wending its way north from the Caribbean.

While we wait for Isaac, we’re busy battening down the hatches:   

* We’ve filled the tub with water for flushing toilets and taking sponge baths.

* We’ve readied flashlights and radios with fresh batteries so we can see in the dark and hear what’s happening with the storm’s progress.

* We’ve charged up the cell phone so we can stay in touch.

* We’ve brought in the deck furniture to prevent it from being tossed about by 60 mph+ winds.

* We’ve filled the cars with gas in case we need to evacuate.

* We’ve taken showers and done laundry and vacuumed the villa.

* We’ve stocked up on peanut butter, jelly, bread, bottled water, and other non-perishables.

And, now, we wait, watch, wonder, and . . . you thought I was going to say “worry,” didn’t you?

Nah.  What’s the use of worrying? 

We are as prepared as we can be for Isaac.  So, we’ll wait, watch, wonder . . . and SING! 

Que sera, sera. 
Whatever will be, will be. 
The future’s not ours to see. 
Que sera, sera.

Aah . . . that’s better!
