We spent better part of the afternoon shuttering up (again); just the garage and the french doors in the back to finish up. I have to tie down the gazebo and a few trees (again) and move all the plants back inside. Definitely not as prepared like last time, but I was going insane having everything completely so early and then just waiting for Frances to arrive.
Generally speaking, with all the waiting like last time… most folks in the area are not as prepared. Tomorrow will be a busy morning before the winds kick-up and the first bands come in. Looks like another late Saturday night party, this time… I bought a portable TV! Since FPL is issuing statements we will be without power for a lengthy period of time. Great, another 2 weeks without phone/internet and probably a good week without power.
