Today we packed up from the Oregon rental house and hit the road for Texas. Luckily our relaxing 2 weeks was not cut short.
We changed our Sacramento route, to avoid possible road closures.
It was odd to see smoky skies, along with some damaged trees, from another year.
We luckily had no real issues, but we could imagine what evacuating might be like. How scary to deal with fire worries, on top of a pandemic.
Before we got on the road, texts started coming in, from friends back home in the Houston area.
What a strange world we're living in right now. Two hurricanes forming at once?
"Laura" was the one that seemed to be more of a threat to our home.
Our next door neighbors let us know that they'd gone to our backyard to move plants and furniture. It will be a few days before we reach home. It's seems so much more predictable than fire. We know the storms will be over by the time we get home. Fingers crossed.
Food for Hunkering Down
We've all gotten so much better at "sheltering in place" this year. I kind of hate knowing that we're not back home, along with our neighbors.
I had to chuckle when I saw this bit of info, that a Texas friend shared.
Toilet paper limits for pandemic. Brisket limits for hurricane!
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me. I ranted for a year, until I got my vaccine in March 2021.
Coronary Artery Disease was the reason I restarted this blog on September 26, 2021. This time it was Don who was dealing with a worry that started with the letter "C".
Coronavirus and Cancer, Coronary Artery Disease! All are evil, but none can totally get me down... if I vent! I usually end up feeling a little more positive at the end of each post!
