The tropical storm is coming and they say we here in Richmond are likely to lose power. I've scheduled some posts for the next two days, but may be incommunicado for awhile.

Gotta go bring in stuff from the yard so it won't become airborne and turn into missiles. Will draw a bucket or two of water, make sure candles and flashlights are nearby, etc.

Main problem is likely to be how to keep baby squirrels warm, but I believe we can solve that one somehow, even if we have to hold them in our laps. I'm all out of those hand-warmers they sell at places like K-Mart, that hunters use, that warm up upon exposure to air. And I don't think the stores have them in yet, this early in the hunting season. Better check, though...

UPDATE: Yes, K-Mart had the handwarmers. The babies will stay snug and warm, come what may.

Praying for your safety during this storm- and for the baby squirrels :)

Thank you!

Well, the prediction was for the heaviest rain and wind to occur between 9 a.m. and noon, and here it is, past 11:00, and so far nothing noteworthy has happened. No weather worth bragging about. Just a much-needed soaking.

Now let's see where Ike will go ... and pray for all in its path.
