      Thanks, but not mine: I’m safe in rainy Stockport, UK.

    Thank you for your post! The East Coast of the USA even experienced an earthquake. May all be safe!

      I saw that. I’ve just been watching the news and, unbelievably, some people aren’t moving away from Irene’s path.

    I echo your concern. Irene has already passed right over Turks and Caicos, without major damage, and – contrary to expectations – left intact the causeway between 2 islands. So here’s hoping she fizzles out before hitting the Eastern seaboard.

    My sentiments too Tilly. Hope everyone is kept safe.

      Two MILLION people have been ordered to evacuate; 65 million are in Irene’s path. Nature is incredible.

    Me too Tilly. We British like to complain about the weather don’t we? But really we have no idea…

    I agree, I hope they are all safe.

    My best friend at work went to New York last Wednesday. Firstly they closed the airports for a while because of the earthquake, now she’s there for the hurricane.

    Last year she had a surprise visit home to see her parents (she’s Czech) cancelled because of the volcano. It’s like she’s in a Final Destination movie.

      😀 Your poor friend! I have one like that: wherever she goes, disaster follows, including the Bali bombing, the Tsunami and a coup somewhere.

      If we ever hear they plan to visit the same place at the same time, we should alert the authorities.

    you’re the best, TB. Thanks. All will be well, as it should.

    So thoughtful of you. I’ll repeat your words. I may get rain my way but not so affected like the east coast.

    I’m sitting on my patio feeling the gusty winds and light rain… We live in central NC, and are thinking of coastal residents as well.

    It is such a big storm! A lot of people need to hear your six words. Praying!


  11. Karen S. August 27, 2011 at 14:23 #

    I too, send my thoughts and wishes for all to be safe….


  12. Audrey August 27, 2011 at 14:39 #

    I”m in CA so I’m safe, but really hard to not keep watching the news.


  13. Brenda Youngerman August 27, 2011 at 14:42 #

    I as well am thinking of those on the East coast…. WE in California are the ones who normally have to deal with earthquakes… what is this world coming to anyway?


  14. Miss Rambler August 27, 2011 at 15:06 #

    Oh, thank you so much. Your concern and your prayers are very mush appreciated.


  15. Hanna August 27, 2011 at 15:26 #

    What happened? I don’t hear any news about the earth quake in the states. Any articles I can read that is telling me what happened? Thanks… (I’m in another country :P)


    • Tilly Bud August 29, 2011 at 10:03 #

      Hurricane Irene went up the East Coast of America.


  16. Michelle August 27, 2011 at 17:09 #

    stay safe whereever you are.


  17. Janie Jones August 27, 2011 at 18:46 #

    Thankfully, my part of the country is hurricane safe. I’d have to say hurricanes are near the top of my list of reasons not to live on the east coast. I’ll take 4 feet of snow, minus 50 degree days and mosquitoes the size of Lear jets any day over hurricanes. Even the occasional threat of tornadoes.

    Be safe to all my blog friends on the coast. Hope you weather the storm.


  18. Jim August 27, 2011 at 21:32 #

    Safe is the word today. Goodness we’ve had scares here along our Gulf Coast but for the time being unless a forest fire gets us I believe we are safe in our HOT.
    Happy 6WS! 🙂


  19. Linda August 28, 2011 at 00:34 #

    Yes, weather can be so scary. I am praying for the people in the path of the hurricane.

    Thanks for thinking of us! 🙂 I’m in North Carolina but far enough inland that the storm didn’t affect me! Hope you have a great weekend!


  21. ElizOF August 28, 2011 at 11:58 #

    TY! We’ll make it. 🙂


  22. Call Me Cate August 28, 2011 at 16:10 #

    Our power flickered but stayed on and no damage. We were on the western edge of the storm so not a huge deal. I’m hoping now that the folks more directly hit stayed/stay safe.


  23. Tilly Bud August 29, 2011 at 10:05 #

    Sky is reporting twenty deaths so far. While that’s twenty too many, it is, thankfully, a minute percentage of the people affected by the hurricane.


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
