Looking out my window, I see clearing skies..
touches of BLUE among the white cloud cover..
As you well know, the gulf coast had all eyes focused on Hurricane Karen..which was supposed to make landfall on Saturday..
however, with upper level drying winds, she basically lost the winds of her sails..and was downgraded to a wet messy tropical storm..
But not before allowing this beautiful dawn on Saturday morning..
what a glorious start to my day!
Like everyone else in their right mind, I checked and replenished items in my "Hurricane Preparedness Pantry"..just in case!
Bottled water keeps indefinitely,as do candles, checked the supply of Flashlight batteries..as well as items such as manual can opener, knives, utensils, paper goods..also checked expiration dates on canned goods..
Then off I went, Nikon fully charged..list ready.
The day was gorgeous!.
stopped by my favorite weed patch to see the butterflies..
so many..so hard to capture..
Thunder Beach weekend..(an annual event)
most were very courteous..
such beautiful Motorcycles..!
filled my gas tank..always do this to be ready to evacuate..
stopped by the grocery store for bread and milk..
back to the beach for more pics..
by now..the sun was getting low...
joined this group of sunset watchers...
just in time..
the rains came pouring down..
accompanied to the booms of thunder and flashing lightning...
settled in for the nite..
toasty and secure..
wishing you blue skies and sunshine..
