Here Comes Irma!!

Good Morning Rosemary and Nancy,  I decided to blog early this morning so I could let you know we are fine and no trouble so far.  It looks awful on TV and we do have spells of wind and rain but right here we are fine.  I have complained all summer as I had to water my blueberries  because we could hear and see the rain south of us, west of us and north of us but none here in this little trough we got no rain and I had to water the berries.  Well, I am not complaining now, we are getting some of the bands but nothing like the ones that came in north of us and flooded Fort Pierce and the ones coming south of us.  We still have power and have no trouble. The eye of Irma is just getting close to Key West which puts the whole state under the storm and it will get worse as Irma moves up the west coast but we will not get it like those on the west coast gets.  Don’t worry about us, we are fine and will be.  It will be all over here by late Tuesday.  I’ll write again later today to keep you posted and tomorrow as long as I have power.  Thanks for your thoughts and prayers, they have helped.  Love you Carol

About Carol (Ouma) Petts

I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.
