It's Going to Rain!!



Our rainy 'season' is May 15 to October 15 while the hurricane 'season' is June 1 to November 30! Does that mean it doesn't rain October16 to November 30?!??!? Only in Florida folks!!


We have been very lucky that most of the hurricanes have by-passed Fort Lauderdale with us only getting 2 major hurricanes which were Wilma in October 2005 and Irma n August 2017. Most of the hurricanes have veered up north or west towards New Orleans but that doesn't mean we won't get it this year.


I am ready every month/day with supplies such as cans of tuna (and an old fashioned manual can opener), batteries, 24 bottles of water, nuts, flashlights, battery-operated radio, fans, backup meds, etc. No hurricanes??? I can use all the above in the following months!


Regarding the rain---we usually get our heavy rain between 9-11 AM and in the afternoons between 2-6 PM but year by year (caused by weather change) it can come at any time of the day or night.
By the way the one thing I don't do is evacuate my apartment and go to a 'shelter'---someone needs to protect all my plants, pictures on the wall not to forget my "A Chorus Line" mementos!!


I hate to say it but the fury of Mother Nature during hurricanes can be breath-taking and, in some incidents beautiful!
