We were on watch for Hurricane Delta since Thursday afternoon. It’s been an interesting hurricane season for the state of Louisiana, but this is something that we anticipate every year. I guess it was just a bit different this time with all that 2020 has given us thus far. My city got a lot of wind and rain but sometimes thats all that’s needed to cause damage. Especially when rain that isn’t associated with any type of storm can destroy homes and lives as well.
I usually sleep light during these events so if something happens, I’m ready to jump up, grab the fam, and hit the road if need be. Our evacuation plan is not the best, but I think it works for us for now. We all have our own plastic tote to throw things into and load in the back of my vehicle, suitcases to fill with clothes, and backpacks to house our daily essentials and electronics. All of my important docs are in a file box that can be picked up rather quickly. And last but not least, dogs hop in the back of the truck with The Mister. If we’re staying, we’re resorting to our stocked pantry, pulling out things that we may need from our supply kit and relying on our generator.
We were lucky enough not to be in the 40K in Baton Rouge that lost power. We were also blessed enough not to experience any significant damage. A few limbs here and there and a day without the internet, but nothing too drastic. I’m hoping it’s the same for my neighbor, Daenel whose about 3 hours north of me.
Anywho, the worst of the storm for us has come and gone. Today is sunny skies and sporadic breezes. With only a month left in the season, I’m praying that this is it.
But it’s 2020.
Who knows what’s next…
Happy Sunday and dont forget Lovecraft Country is on tonight!
