good to see you got a bit more of a chance to prepare this year! Definitely seeing the 'grump' face on a couple of those guys, though probably a lot less grumpy than if they were outside right now!

Just heard on the radio here it's been lowered to a 'tropical storm' and thankfully casualties are low. Unfortunately 2 people have been killed by a falling tree but no other deaths have come up yet (according to radio over here)

Unfortunately there's quite a bit of damage from what has been said and a lot of people are without power. hopefully all those effected can band together and fix things up quickly

Re: Hurricane

It does look like a bird smuggling or hoarding situation at the moment lol but I promise it isnít!

Our yard just has little twigs down; I donít know yet how the rest of our area fared. Last I heard two were dead; one of them was a child
