Is anyone else starting radiation in October? I was supposed to start today but it took them so long to do the x-rays and more markings that they mercifully postponed the treatment until tomorrow--which is October. I will be having 30 treatments over six weeks.

Kamboka, stay safe. It looks like it will be a tropical storm as it weakens crossing the state. We are out of the cone, but tropical storm conditions may occur and 3 to 5 foot storm surge.

mocame, definitely not good news for your parents. It will still be hurricane strength. Are they full time residents or just in the winter?

mocame: I had to look up Lorida as I'd not heard of it before. Looks like it's in the area of the hurricane as it comes inland. I hope that their property will not be affected.

petite1: I was glad to hear that Tampa was out of the direct path but the folks south of you will be hit hard. There are a lot of elderly in that area. I hope they evacuated. My cousin lives in Sarasota and she and hubby decided to stay and ride it out.

Just this hour, we started getting sprinkles and some wind. I think I've moved all my outside stuff in. I'm sandwiched between two houses and that can provide some buffer from the wind. However, I have a pond behind my house but don't think it will overflow.

My parents have postponed leaving for their trip until next week as long as there is electricity back by then. They just bought this mobile home last winter when they were down there. They bought it for them and another couple to spend the winter. My parents were going down to start preparing it to be lived in this winter. I also have an uncle that was supposed to leave tomorrow for Sarasota. I don't think they will be going right now either just because they would have to drive through the rain/wind to get there.

I hope and pray both of you stay safe!

mocame: It's supposed to be sunny here on Saturday. We've had a little rain all day with a bit of wind. The wind is picking up and tomorrow afternoon/night we'll see winds in the 40s. I have an early morning doctor's appointment so I hope it's not too bad. Winds expected in the 30s. I haven't received a cancellation so I'll try to go.

petite1: I'm thinking you might have lost power. Hope everything is okay with you and your family.

We are OK. Just wind and rain. My niece has been without power since 2:30 pm, yesterday. Looking at the damage, it is too much to even imagine. Kamboka, stay safe.

I hope both of you are safe and have not much if any damage. My parents place is fine. The eye of the storm went over their trailer park, thank God. The good news is that because of this storm, they found out the park has a safe house where people can go in case of these storms.

petite1: I'm glad you and the family weathered the storm. It's pleasant here too but the sun will come out later this afternoon. I went to Lowe's to get some spikes to re-spike my tree but their garden center was still closed. Went to Home Depot but they didn't have spikes. I'll have to order from Amazon. I did get a stake and tried to straighten the tree up. It was between 45 - 60 degree bend. My trip back overseas might be postponed till late in the month. I really need to be there before the 20th as I'm replacing someone. I'll start working virtually next week but that means getting to work at 4am. Ugh.
