Hi Jasmine! I haven't been around for a few days, but wanted to jump on here and tell you to stay safe and my thoughts will be with you during this hurricane.
We were hit hard last year by Isabel and were without power for 11 days. Make sure you have a hand type can opener or cans with pop tops. :) I found out too, that candles and battery operated things don't last too many days. Thankfully, I had some antique oil lamps and they were life savers. If you think there is a chance of you getting hit really hard, you might want to put your kitties in a carrier and keep them with you so they won't freak out. One more thing, if you have a cell phone, a car charger for it is really handy when the power goes out for an extended period.
Good Luck Sweetie!
Thank you Colleeen!!!!!
I just saw the first two or three drops of rain hit my patio - it might be starting....
Oh MAN I hope we don't have any problems... I'm getting nervous now....
We've got the can openers, lots of food, hopefully it won't be an issue....
I'll keep you all updated!! (HUGS)
I heard on the news that they were shutting off power to downtown Tampa this morning, because of the underground wires to prevent massive damage from storm surge. This makes me glad my aunt is HERE instead of home in Tampa right now lol Stay safe!
Seems like Mother Nature has not been too kind to us lately.
Should they rename this hurricane to the Hurricane Clyde? ;) (To go with Hurricane Bonnie)
WOW! Stay safe!! I hope it just passes over & I hope it loses strength before it gets to you. My mother-in-law in Florida is supposed to go check on my husband's grandfather to make sure he's o.k...he's closer to where the storm is coming I guess.
Stay safe Jasmine!! I hope you can get to my e-mails before you lose power ;) I'd really like to get started this weekend =D
Hehe, I'm emailing you right now! ;)
I hope things will be ok over there!! Stay safe!!!

Stay Safe, Jasmine!!
Stay safe, Honey, I'm worried about you! All I hear about on the news/internet/radio is the hurricane descending upon Florida! I'll be thinking about you and Matty! Stay in touch! ---love, Mom
So far so good - I've seen about three drops of rain, but I hear thunder and the sky is getting darker......
We will just bunker up here in our house (sturdy cinderblock construction!), and we've got lots of candles, hehe. (((HUGS!!!)))
Ok, I know that hurricane's aren't "good" and "fun" things, but they sound a little exciting to me, lol! All that waiting and anticipation. Stay safe and I hope you don't get hit too hard! Just enough to have some wild looking clouds and a little thunder and lightning. Exciting but not dangerous!
Wow, congratulations on having to up your comission prices! lol, I've been saying congratulations to you quite often lately! You are certainly taking your career higher every day!
Jasmine... we didn't get much from it .. just one bad squall last night. Real windy here but no rain. YOU and MATT on the other hand, take this seriously!! Even if you are inland this is a strong storm. *hugs*
Please stay safe! I hope it passes by you!
Though the hurricane (now a catagory 4) is heading directly for Fort Meyers, your area has some severe thunderstorms including tornadoes heading for you. Are you near the theme parks, cuz right now the bands of severe storms are heading towards them. Be careful!!!!!
Oh yes! Celebration is Disney's town (designed & built right on Disney property) so we are RIGHT by Disney World. We're just now getting some crazy rain & thunder....
Bunker down and stay safe!!!!!
2:15pm now. Skys are overcast, but not much darker than normal. Not much of a wind either. But I think I live in an area that is not going to get hit.
Good luck! I think you're in an area that will get most of the rain. I live to the south and on the East coast so I won't see much I think.
Stay safe in the insanity.
Hopefully all will go well.
Yay! My husband Tom is a leo, but I doubt he would care for a painting of a little Leo fairy lol, hey isnt Virgo after Leo ? *wink*
if there is thunder and lightning, Balto says to tell you to stay away from the computer and video games because lightening can travel through the wires. Hurricanes are interesting but can be dangerous too ! You are not *too* close to the coast, I don't think, stay safe, and weather the storm safely and without too much trouble !
I think it's definitely the right thing to do to raise your prices. You're definitely worth the money! Besides you've got to keep up with inflation and stuff anyway, so you'd have to raise them eventually. Better to do it now so that you can get a fair price and your customers can get things faster.
Good luck in the storms. We're getting the rain here already, but I'm sure it's much worse there.
I am so sorry i lost the one address.. You know the web sites you gave me.. If you could please send me them again.. that would be great... Thank you..
