Made It to the Gym This Morning

The Citrus Tower with stormy clouds rolling in tonight.
Yes, I was up at 4:00 this morning and on my way to the gym by 4:30.  It was surprisingly crowded at that time in the morning.  Who knew?  I stayed for an hour and then headed back home to get ready for work.  I am planning to again tomorrow.  I am hoping the added physical exercise will make me tired enough so I can sleep better at night.

We had a significant hail storm in August of this year.  It did a number on our rental home located about 40 minutes from us.  The area is still recovering from Hurricane Irma and finding a reliable roofing company is not that easy.

I have been in contact with a second roofing company since the first company I contacted has not responded.  The deductible is $500.  I will be calling again tomorrow!  I really need to get the ball rolling and get that roof fixed and or replaced.

We lost this beautiful tree due to Hurricane Irma

We ate at Chick-fil-a tonight.  The plumbers that plumbed in the pool this afternoon cut our main water line.  They left and didn't tell the office, our sales rep, or us.  They just turned the water off and left.  I called the office, the sales rep and sent emails.   It came down to my husband coming home from work and fixing it himself.  If we had to wait for the company or a plumber, we would not have water all night.  It was annoying, inconvenient, and three hours later we now have running water again.

Accidents happen, but at least fix it!

Tree was removed due to safety issues 

The tropics are with named hurricanes and potential hurricanes. Florence is making her way to the Carolinas as a category 4,  I hope it weakens as it approaches.   It was this time last year that we were enduring Hurricane Irma as she passed through.  I set up my safe room in our walk-in closet.  Blow up mattress, blankets, flashlights, charged up  cellphone, and snacks.

I am hoping we don't have to prep like that again. It can be unnerving because the storms are so unpredictable.

How is the weather where you are?  Are you dealing with unpredictable weather as well?


  1. I'm in Brooklyn, NY, and we've had some pretty unpredictable weather as well. Went from scorching heat to digging out my flannel nightgown in less than two days. Now we are wet and heading towards the heat and humidity again. Just waiting for the first 'real' cool breeze of Autumn.

    1. The weather seems to be crazy just about every where. A co-worker is visiting New York and her pictures the last couple of days have lots of rainy weather in them.

      I can't wait for fall either!

    2. Here in N AL, I am on the clean side of the hurricane and waiting as the weather gets drier this weekend. It is still so hot and humid here.

    3. Hi Linda, Glad to hear you are not severely impacted from the hurricane. I can sympathize with the heat and humidity. Hurry up Fall weather!!
