Last Pictures of the Day

It is getting dark now so these are the last pictures for today.  The winds are quite a bit harder now and more constant too.  We are now sure we are in the middle of a hurricane. 

This is our front.  I can’t go out because of the wind and rain so have to take the picture through the window.  That bright light behind the truck is just the reflection from the light in the room behind me.  Here you see how far those big trees are bending, they are evergreen trees and just don’t bend.  So far none have snapped off.  The palms are really whipping around.  

The palms at the corner of the neighbor’s house are whipping so much you can now see the window.  Under normal conditions you can’t see there is even a window there.  You can also see the old fronds under the trees are blowing around the yard.  None are hitting the house yet.  We have another two or three hours before we get to the worst of it.

This is the back and hard to get the picture because of the reflection of the light from the camera.  I think you can see the river that runs down the middle of the Savanna.  Under normal conditions you can’t see any water, most of the time they are dry but it is coming up now.  We have had it higher than this before but never to our back door and I hope it don’t come up that far tonight.   That is all for tonight.  We still have power even though the TV has gone off three times this afternoon but came on again after a few minutes .  I’ll write again in the morning if the power stays on.  Have a safe night.  Patty and I are still sewing and we are all fine.  Love to all

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.
