Oh, boy!  It’s mid-August along the Gulf Coast, and we’re excited about hurricane season!

Well, not really excited.  Perhaps interested.

The El Nino-inspired tropical weather pattern this year has been pretty calm so far, but the latest predictions indicate a livelier pattern is taking shape.

But I’m ready.

  • The generator I bought for Gustav last year is sitting in the garage, ready for action.
  • We have  brand new shingles on the roof.
  • The butane burner and bottle we bought for Gustav last season was only used once, so how about cooking a sauce piquante on the patio?  We’re ready!

Not that we want a hurricane, mind you.  But to say “We’re ready,” as “ready” as one can be for a hurricane, I guess we are.  But we’ll be more than pleased if we don’t have to use our preparations.
