Default Preparation for our Transatlantic Cruise LIBERTY

You may know it but we in Florida are watching the Weather People very closely. They say that Wilma is projected to come our way. It is late in Hurricane Season but These Gals don't seem to understand. We Don't want any more storms period.

But we have to prepare our property for what ever may come. We do not know as of now for sure that Wilma will come into Central Florida SO we prepare for Her if and when she may come and do harm to us. I have removed all furniture, plants etc from our porch (Patio). Put it all in the garage. Put the benches into our shed. We feel they will be safer there. And they wont be blowing around.

We had to do all this even tho She may not come out way.

We are packed and will fly on Thursday on our way to Rome.

Ray and Helen,

Hope Wilma doesn't come your way while gone. I hope it goes away completely as my 2 kids are in Tampa at college. They went out today to get some water, granola bars, etc. just in case.

As for your trip, I hope you and Helen, along with all my CM family have a fantastic and safe cruise.

I'll be thinking of all you mates and that wonderful transatlantic crossing!
Ahhh, all those sea days, marvelous! :-)

I hope this one just heads out to sea and forgets about land fall, enough already!

Bon Voyage and enjoy!

Bon Voyage, Ray and Helen!!

I sure hope Wilma steers away from Florida all together - and I hope that you have someone who can check on your house for you while you are gone.

Can't wait to see your pics from the Liberty Cruise!

Glad you had time to prepare for the storm as well as the trip. The way I procrastinate, I'm sure I wouldn't have had time to do both. A good lesson for all of us - remember to make room for emergencies.

Truly hope all is safe at home while you are gone, and that you have a wonderful Voyage.

OK, have put all plants and small objects away and just hope the storm is kind to Florida. 'da Coot' is having a stress attack because we won't be here to guard the dog and the home.

Last minute preparations being taken care of right now so we can leave.

Yep.......hoping Wilma calms down and only presents a minimal problem here in what SHOULD be the SUNSHINE STATE! Glad to hear that Ray and Tweety have made as much outdoor prep as they can before taking off. Have a wonderful cruise!
