We are battening down the hatches and getting ready for Earl to arrive sometime late tomorrow. Already the phone at work is abuzz with clients asking what to do to secure their homes. Fortunately many have hurricane strength windows but this is a much bigger storm than we've seen in many years. Our local grocery store sold 7 tons of water yesterday!
There are many blase tourists around, though, and they are making it all in to one big party.
LM is spending today securing things at his house and the contractors should be coming first thing to get the huge shower unit into the house and off of the back terrace. Our cars are fueled, we have cash, and plenty of non-perishables and batteries. That's about all we can do.
We just wait....the air thick with moisture and anxiety.
