We have not one but two nasty weather systems in our future. First, a nor'easter is bringing us lots of rain and storms. Two, a little hurricane called Joaquin may cause us some trouble.
It's too early to tell where Joaquin will make landfall, but this is what it looks like as of 6 pm on Sept 30. No bueno.
Yes, Norfolk (where we live) is right in the bullseye.
Our local weather team is predicting a poopy outcome overall.
But we'll see. Who knows what will happen in a few days time?
In the meantime, our supplies have been updated. We have oodles of potty pads in store. We are as ready as we can be. Think good thoughts for us and our city. The biggest impact will likely be damage from falling trees since the ground is saturated from lots and lots of rain. That could mean power outages and damage to buildings.
It's the price we pay for living near the wild and wonderful Atlantic.
