She never quite made it up to hurricane status, but tropical storm Hanna’s still getting a lot of attention around here. We’re already getting intermittent showers from her outer edges, and by two a.m. Saturday she’ll be making landfall.
We’re pretty far inland in the Triangle, so we aren’t expecting it to be too bad. But past storms like Fran and Dennis have taught us not to get too complacent, and there’s no bottled water or lantern flashlights left at my local Wal-Mart. When The Artist got home from school I had him help me put the patio furniture into the shed, just in case. I told our stray cat to find himself a dry place to sleep tonight.
Last year we had severe drought. I guess all the collective wishing and praying for rainfall is catching up to us now.
