Fall … Hurricane warnings

It’s been a busy week. Hubby is working on the sheds and got to the point of the inside sides and back to go. Roofing might have to wait until next year. He chose the sides intentionally knowing we can get storms and such in the fall. We’re prone to some hurricanes as well. So, the least likely areas to be damaged were left to last.

Now, we have to kind of batten down the hatches so to speak. There is some speculation that Hurricane Teddy could make landfall here and could cause damage early in the week. Things are mostly in place, just some moving of things that should be put away or tied down. We’ve been through Dorian, so we feel better equipped for Teddy. There will be some baking in case of loss of power. Dorian we lost power for about a week. The house is better situated for it too. Anchors now securely in place and skirting.

So, one thing I’ve learned is to prepare in case there is another Dorian or worse…we don’t catastrophize it, we just prepare. The preparation of food and water ahead won’t go to waste so even if it doesn’t strike here, we’ll be able to eat stuff made.

Like with writing, always be prepared to do what you have to in order to make your project successful and keep working toward the goal of making a piece of art. Whether it is a eBook, housework or whatever the project, you need to work toward the best likelihood of it being successful. The extra work will never be wasted. Make sure what you do is something useful.

Be realistically unrealistic in making sure that you plan ahead. Dorian was our major storm learning curve. My book cover issues are a learning curve. Life is a learning curve, so just keep working on being the best person you can be. Remember that as the goal and keep working at getting things you have control over the way you want them. Our house now can withstand the wind and rain. The rest of the property has been improved upon. The only weak point might be the roof of the sheds and the unfinished sides, but we have done all we can to prepare. They are also surrounded by trees…which is both a protection and a danger. Remember that everything in life also will have weak points.
Don’t let them stop you from being the best you can be. We weren’t actually doing it to prepare as such, but when you do your projects, if you are prepared, you can make sure your projects are built well. It can withstand storms and so can you.

Real life and the author.  Tips for keeping ahead of the storm!

*Won’t go into the sordid details, but sorry, misnamed Teddy used Terry. Not sure why. Have heard the hurricane name often enough, you’d think I would get it right πŸ™‚ Now it is corrected. thanks for your patience πŸ™‚
