Hurricanes and others things...
Today we are watching the weather report as Hurricane Florence is barreling toward the Carolina's coast. We will feel it on Thursday and Friday and then the rains into the weekend....my state will be spared the brunt of the storm but it is looking like it's going to hit the same area where we vacationed after Hurricane Matthew destroyed many of the homes on Ocean Isle beach...in 2016.
I doubt that any of these homes were saved if they were they will surely go this time as it looks like the eye of Florence is very nearly gonna pass just to the north of them..
...remember my room was the blue room...That was such a great trip with my sisters and my mom.
This summer we went no where it's been quite depressing...a lot of life stuff just got in the way and that is how things happen some time. The weather has been so nasty this summer with heat and humidity I did no van traveling, and no camping boohoo! I did however find a YouTuber to take me on virtual trips...she does a Vlog, and I have been enjoying her posts of her summer trip to Alaska...if you don't already know about Carolyn's Rv Life, you should check it out. I've been enjoying her Vlogs! She and I have a lot in common,,,,from our Politics, to being Vegan, and loving to travel, in fact her early childhood sounds a lot like mine too...She has lived in a big city San Francisco, and now she lives in a 24ft RV....so check her out...Hopefully that will be me out there traveling again soon! It's a good channel. I hope to make a new video or blog soon, I have been in such a BLAH mood all summer...so hopefully soon the weather and my mood will change!
If you recall I made a story board of my trip to Alaska, always vowed to go back since we had a fast trip of just over a week...watching her Alaska post brings back some memories, so I figured I'd rerun this one from way back...my videos of our trip are the old school kind I did put it on a DVD but until I can figure out hot to get that into my computer it remains on a shelf! I may try to use my Fire Pad to make a video of a video? That would probably be awful quality..lol
SO anyway I took the highlights and drew it out...it was a lot of fun to do this..and Alaska was awesome..the bits I can see in her vlogs is the Wilderness looks the same but the towns, and areas around Denali have grown a LOT! Better get there again soon or it won't be anything like it used to be. I want to drive there next time like she is doing. Hope your summer is wrapping up well and your fall comes in living colors!
UPDATE: according to our news Florence is now headed right for the coast of SC and they have the track coming right over my area so we are preparing for the worst! Already there has been a rush on bread and other staples...I plan to gas up in the morning, and get cash at the bank...having been through HUGO and without power for 11 days I know what to expect...just hope the trees around us hold up!
