Talk to you all after Ernesto

  1. I know some of the Florida ladies have been talking about preparing for Ernesto, well I just got back to Ft Lauderdale this morning and am ready for the storm.

    Unfortunately for us, our house is under major renovation- and part of the renovation is the roof. So we don't have a stable roof in many places of our house right now. I have been helping my mom since I got home to move the furniture and cover everything in plastic. With every little rainstorm the past few months our house has leaked (even where the ceiling is falling apart above me right now!) So while the storm will not be awful, the rain will really be a problem for our house. Hopefully it will not be the 10-15" that are expected...

    So to all of you Florida and Carribean people- I hope you all make it through the storm ok!! Check in with us after it passes.

    I have to unplug the computer and move it out of this room, but I will have Vlad update you!!

    Keep the forum running smooth while I'm 'gone' :wlae:

    P.S. Go away Ernesto!!!! :rant:

  12. Rebecca, I am in the same boat as you! Our shutters our up and our generator is ready to go in case the power goes out. Last year, after Wilma, we were out of power for 13 days! Ugh, it was terrible. This year we are a lot smarter!
