For the last two years, we’ve had to deal with Hurricane Matthew and Hurricane Irma. Luckily we escaped without any serious damage and us and the pets ended up being just fine. After enduring all the headaches and stress sh*ts from Irma last year, we were really hoping to not have to go through that crap again. No such luck there ! Originally we weren’t in the path of Florence but it looks like we’re going to get at least tropical storm weather from her. We live in Georgia, about an hour from Savannah. We plan on staying put so today we put the finishing touches on our hurricane supplies which included a couple bottles of rum and coke to go with it. Nobody should have to go through a hurricane sober !
Take care everybody, especially those whose lives are being affected by Florence !
We live in coastal Georgia and we’re potentially in Irma’s path. We know that a lot can change in just a few days time just like it did last year when hurricane Matthew came through. We got some tropical storm weather then but aside from losing power for a few days and some slight damage to our fence and roof, we were extremely lucky. Us and our pets came through okay. Are we going to be that lucky this year? Staying or evacuating both have their problems. We’re leaning toward evacuating but if we do that, we would want to leave early to avoid congested evacuation traffic, gas lines, and hopefully not have problems with hotels. Those problems seem twice as bad when you’re traveling with multiple pets. In those few days Irma could potentially not be a problem for us anymore. I know being on the road is going to be very stressful for our pets. They’ll probably have to stay in the cars until we can make it back home again. That is, if we have a home to come back to ! Of course, my dad’s employer probably won’t let the employees leave until the last moment possible. Because of the stress of this,we’re making sure we’re well stocked on toilet paper, tylenol, and pepto-bismol !
We weren’t paid in any form to promote Tylenol or Pepto-Bismol.
