Battening Down the Hatches

Ed is coming our way..... That is if he does not hook a bit East before landfall. So far, Ed, short for Edouard, is only a really big Tropical Storm, with sustained winds of 45-50 MPH. The news is reporting that the storm will *probably* make landfall as a class 1 Hurricaine. Winds may gust up to 75 MPH.
Luckily, I am not a Coastal resident, but about 40 miles from Galveston.
However, I am still not taking any chances with my family, home or tiny shop in Old Katy.
I have some work to do inside and outside, not to mention a little grocery shopping. I have to prepare for possible electricty outages, flooding and most importantly, the wind. That means picking all the *stuff* outside and keeping it from where it can fly into a window or something.
I'll keep y'all posted. I am sure everything will be fine..... This is so much better than living through an earthquake. I can see my threat, so it really does not scare me like having an earthquake just sneak up on you. :0)
Later, Gators.
