|I wonder why I have keys in my mouth?|
In 2004 Hurricane Ivan did about 20K worth of damage to my home in Navarre. In 2005 I sold my home about a month before Katrina hit Florida then went on to devastate New Orleans.
Tomorrow, a hurricane is predicted to make landfall in Costa Rica for the first time in recorded history.
It is a category 1 Hurricane.
Yesterday was the most beautiful day. It was around 75° in the morning and not a cloud in the sky.
My "daughter" Yerlin came by to finish painting my porch. She was showing me videos of the flooding by Otto in Panama. Scary.
Flooding is always a worry. I lived in this neighborhood in 2012 and the road turns into a river during heavy rains.

I am sure the lights will go out. I do have a gas stove, so I will be able to cook and I have 6 five gallon containers of water. Lots of batteries and candles, too. I am in the process of freezing blocks of ice for my cooler.
No turkey for me this Thanksgiving. A frozen turkey costs about $70. YIKES! So a stuffed chicken will be just fine. :)
Amidst all this chaos, political and weather wise I am thankful for:
- that my friend Yvonne is still with us
- Yerlin, a remarkable Tica
- that most Americans voted for Hillary
- that my viewers are the best in the world
Happy Thanksgiving to all.
