Irma Is Coming

Last time I posted, we expected Hurricane Irma to track up the East Coast of Florida. We woke this morning to a West Coast track...right over my home of Tampa. As my neighbor said, "Irma is going to be redrawing this part of Florida," and there will be a lot of us without homes in 30 hours or so.

I put my foot down and sent Dina to stay with friends on the East Coast. I'm hunkering down since not much I can do with two fifty pound dogs. I look up at the giant oaks surrounding my house, and I'm not embarrassed to say I'm worried.

Maybe pray for us, if you believe.

So here are some snaps from a paddle I took on Monday




On the south side of the river


On the north side of the river



Love the deadwood poking out.

  8. It's late Sunday here now and I hope you and your friends all still have your homes. And everyone else too of course. I'm really surprised at how many times America has been hit this year with one thing or another. I hope the dogs aren't too frightened.
