Getting Ready For Dennis

According to various sources Hurricane Dennis should be here between 2 and 4 pm tomorrow.

Our house is ready:

This is the front of the house, excuse the mess. We aren't boarding up the front window because we miscalculated the amount of plywood we would need and it's protected by the front porch and as you can see there are no trees to worry about.

Here is part of the back of the house.

This is the other side of the house and yes, it does need to be pressure washed. That is DS#3's pool that you see. Our plan had been to fill it with water to use for flushing the toilets but I filled it and the water has disappeared. We can't seem to find the leak.

As you can probably tell we decided to stay. It appears that Dennis may head to the Alabama/Mississippi line which would be a relief for my area. We would still get hit kind of hard but nothing like the direct hit they are expecting. But a turn in the storm means trouble for someone else. We're prepared, well stocked on food, I think we have plenty of water, and the storm is making landfall during the day which I find comforting.

The kids are already bored. The next 24 hours are going to be very, very long.
