NEVER MIND

After listening to the possibility of Hurricane Danny and Erica for several weeks, the result is Never Mind. It is good practice for when the real thing comes around. People did runs on food stores, home supply stores, gas stations, etc in the event of the hurricane prophecy coming to be. I know that it is important to be prepared. I feel for the people in tornado and mud slide areas that do not get any warning at all.
The last time that we went through the warnings, it turned into a rain event.It was a Tropical storm called Isaac. It took place three years ago and it caused minor flooding in some places and a lot of flooding in other places. The water levels were not lowered and the sewers were backed up by all of the debris that was in the street The definition of a rain event means that there was rain, but it fell short of being a hurricane. We have rain events quite frequently in Florida.
As you can see from the pictures, the kids in the neighborhood had a good time in the flooded streets. Why anyone would want to swim or walk through polluted water from runoff of lawn chemicals or gasoline from cars is beyond me. I keep the sewer grate in front of my house free of all the garbage that accumulates very day.019015020
Hopefully this will be the last significant weather event that we have for the year.

    So glad the hurricanes missed you. Ya know, this is just what kids do. My Mom remember playing outside in the rain and puddles in PA. And the run on the stores: every time it calls for a little snow around here in Chattanooga, you better be fast or you won’t find any bread, milk, or bottled water in the groceries. Usually, the snow passes by, the kids still get a day off school, and the groceries bottom line goes up.

      We are thankful that the hurricane passed us by. The damage done in 2004 and 2005 was horrible. There are still people that are not fixed from those events.

      We suffered in 2004 and 2005 with Frances, Jean, and Wilma. The events of Katrina were beyond horrible. We have a lot to be thankful for these last 10 years.

      The worst part was that it was something that could have been avoided by a little help with lowering the levels in the canals ans clearing out the sewer grates.

    We are SO happy we live in a relatively natural disaster free country. Other than the very occasional flood, we don’t have earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, land slides, tsunamis or anything nearly as life threatening as you do in the US of A. We’re very glad to hear the the event turned into a non-event.

    Having survived three hurricanes, we are happy to be in a nonevent. Hurricanes give warnings. Most natural disaster do not give you a chance to prepare.
