Ocala checking in

Three weeks ago we got word that Charley would be coming right through Ocala and it barely rained… here we go again. That doesn’t mean that I’m taking this lightly, although I’ve learned through the years that what you need to do is prepare the best you can, learn where the shelter is should you need it and stock up on the booze. I prefer red wine with my hurricanes. You don’t need anything but a glass and a corkscrew – no ice to worry about should you lose electricity, no mixers to keep cold. Very low tech, very hurricane friendly.

Here’s hoping it turns and goes out to sea. *clink*

    Christine, you’re in Ocala? My wife’s from there. Hope you’re spared the worst of Frances. (My in-laws in Daytona already got smashed by Charley.) Do you have your own blog?
