Once in a while, paradise is interrupted.

A storm is heading our way. At least we think it is. The predicted track has not been agreed to by the computers that model these things. (Or maybe it is the humans that work with the computers?) In a day, we'll know more but for now we plan. There are things we must secure at our homes, furniture we must move inside from porches, and lanais, and balconies. And plants, too. And if we can't be completely secure where we are, or a governmnent tells us to move along while potential harm passes, we temporarily move on. We worry about our families and our friends and neighbors. We help where we can as best we can. And as quickly as we can.

We'll all meet again with stories to tell.

In the meantime, Godspeed to all of us.
