I know you’re almost certainly aware that Hurricane Ian is bearing down on the Sunshine State as I write this. It’s a very big deal.
I’m posting about it now because I think the majority of friends who follow this blog are in or near Florida.
If your Hurricane preps are complete, good on you. You know this storm is not to be taken lightly.
If you are in the Central Florida region and your preps are not-so-good or if you haven’t started, do it now! While it’s true that you might find empty or nearly-empty shelves in some places, it’s still worth the effort and aggravation to get out there even at the eleventh hour and do what you can.
If you’d like info about this storm, I suggest the Weather Channel if it’s available from your cable provider. The weather folk at most local network affiliates usually do a great job when the storms hit; That’s a good alternative. A shout-out to Tom Sorrells at Local 6 in Orlando…
If your internet’s working fine, this site is a good place to get updates. Especially if your cable connection isn’t working, but you have power and a working internet connection.
Be safe, friends. This storm is right on our doorstep and it’s going to smack us hard.
Battening down the hatches in Davenport, I am,
