It's a Hurricane Party!

We are STILL in St. Augustine, Florida. Now that is not a bad thing. Today we went down to Daytona to the infamous thousand acre (well, seems like that) flea market. We walked the entire thing in a couple hours. See, when you live in less than 400 sq. ft. of space, it certainly makes a difference in what you thought you couldn’t live without!

Last night Jacksonville got up to 5 inches of rain in some areas. Glad we weren’t there. The bad news is that the hurricane is still not headed this way, but they have started evacuations and have issued storm watches. Terry just told me that St. Augustine is actually in the hurricane watch area and Jacksonville is in the tropical storm watch area. Hmmmm. The storm is expected to pass quickly over Florida on Monday. I don’t know how they can predict it is going to speed across Florida when it has sat in one place for 24 hours.

The campground is full again tonight and looks like hurricane parties are in full swing. A lot of people came in together and are sitting out. We choose to remain indoors away from the mosquitoes. We killed one that lit on Neal and you could have lifted footprints off of her. We did put out some candles and other bug repellants and they seem to work, but near dusk and dawn, the seem to be more active.

Till next time. . .
