Not going to take up too much time here. I've been spending most of the day watching Gustave.
We experienced Hurricane Isabel when we were visiting the Eastern Shore of Maryland. We were staying at relatives who have a house situated back from the bay with their lawn, the road, and short expanse of grass and a small dock (which disappeared after Isabel.)
Of course we lost electricity. When we woke in the morning the whole house was surrounded with water and our rental car was floating. A neighbor tied it to the porch because when the tide went out the car would've gone too.
People went up and down the road in boats. Kids swam in the water. The water didn't go down until afternoon. That evening Hertz brought us another car and took the other one away.
Much too exciting! I can't imagine living where you have threats of hurricanes every summer. I'll take a good old earthquake anytime.
I received two interesting comments about my Deputy Tempe Crabtree mystery series via email this weekend. One bad one good. I blogged about this on Marilyn's Musings.
