Hurricane Florence: Entry # 3

We thought we would have a day at home today to finish preparing for hurricane Florence but when one of our doctors called wanting to reschedule our appointments for today (because of the hurricane); we found ourselves heading into town again this morning.

Traffic going out of town was almost bumper to bumper and the traffic in town was about as bad.

The ice machine place was doing a booming business with people waiting in line to buy ice.  

We noticed this store already had their storm covering over the windows.

Our local Walmart had closed down and taped off all their gas pumps.  We also noticed that there was a 4 – 5 cent increase in gasoline prices everywhere else. 
After we got back home, we finished securing things outside.  
Cities and towns are beginning to put curfews into place.
This evening when we went back into town for Wednesday Night Bible Class there were several more gas stations, stores and business’ boarded up and closed down.
We're projected to start feeling the first effects of Hurricane Florence tomorrow.  Please keep those prayers going!
Until next time …

  1. Thank you for keeping us up to date with what is happening. Here in Aus we have had very little information on this hurricane. There was a quick segment on the news last night and that's about it. I am praying for all those in the path of this monster. Stay safe dear friend.

  2. Father God, I pray for the entire area where this storm is projected to hit. Protect your people Father. I ask in Jesus' name. Storm dissipate. Calm in Jesus' name.
    Father please be a shield all around those in need. Please meet every need. Amen.

    Bless you Patsi!

  3. i've never been in a situation like that so no idea what you're going through except that it sounds extremely scary! i hope that you stay safe & aren't hit too bad when the storm hits land
    don't worry about us here just keep your family & friends safe there, we will still be here when it all blows over eagerly awaiting news
    thanx for sharing

  4. Patsi, I will keep,praying for protection for you. I haven't heard from my friend in Raleigh. I think it won't be as bad there from the looks of the tracking forecast. As Jane said there isn't much on the news here about Florence so far. I have to look online to get updates. Stay safel

  5. I was so glad to see this morning that Florence is now a Cat 2. It is still going to bad, I know, but not what it could have been. Continued prayers for you!

  6. We are hunkered down in our part of eastern NC and waiting too. I am thrilled to see the storm has been downgraded a little this morning. Trusting in God and leaning on Him. Stay safe!!

  7. My prayers for your safety and the safety of those around you. How close are you to the direct path of Florence?

  8. I am on pins and needles for you. prayers coming your way.
