Well we gave in. Sophia and I checked into the Wyndham Sugar Bay this afternoon in preparation for Tropical Storm Omar. I was doing the safe thing. Of course it was raining as I left the house and hasn’t been since. That’s OK, I guess. Gave us some time to explore the resort and its pools. Pretty nice. A “Wow” according to Sophia, and I think she thought she saw mermaids….so that’s something.
Tomorrow and Thursday could be rough. In the meantime I am enjoying a glass of wine and Internet access. The storm is currently headed toward us and expected to gain strength, possibly an H1 hurricane tonight/early tomorrow. It seems like it will mostly dump a LOT of water on us but I’ll withhold judgement. After all yesterday it was only a tropical wave….
We’re safe. This resort has its own power and water. So I know we’re good. The lady gathering up pool furniture this afternoon told me that the is where the Red Cross stays if thats needed so I definitely feel safe. Sophia loved her pizza and is dreaming sweet toddler dreams. Me, I’m off to cheesy novel land. A pretend vacation, at least for a night.
I’ll feel guilty for being here if this amounts to nothing, I’ll be really glad to be here if it hits us hard. Like life hurricane tracking is a crap shoot. This time I’m doubling down. I have to protect the bear after and above all.
