Tomas to pass over Turks & Caicos

Recommended Posts

Rain cleared off and it's been partly sunny today.  Andy's been putting shutters up at the office. I've been getting things indoors and shopping at the grocery store.   Pick up the kids later and a final grocery run to snuggle in for Friday.   Looks like it's moving west now and may impact the southern bahamas more than us...but we're all prepping just in case.  Airport and banks will be shut tomorrow.  So all is good.  One thing people in the US don't realize is that our homes are made of concrete with steel bars going through the poured concrete, we're all pretty solid.  Too much rain is the biggest concern in the low lying areas, but most people build with that in mind.

 

going to do lots of fun baking with the girls tonight to have fun treats tomorrow.....

So relieved to hear that you guys are ok. I imagine the structures in T&C are much like the structures in Trinidad where I am from (concrete) but I know how too much rain in low lying areas can cause a mess....not sure if you guys get mud slides there, we get a ton in Trinidad. But I am very happy to hear you and your girls and Andy are safe and sound. I hope that goes for everyone else as well. I'm guessing that by Sunday it will be well past and probably bringing us bands of showers here in Miami. Have a safe trip to VA Krys!
