We need the rain. Maybe that's all we'll get.

Save the books, Bill! Save the books!

Bill Crider said...

For sure.

Leave now. But see Wall-E on the way out of town.

Take the books. Leave the cannoli.

Be careful, pard...and that goes for the missus, too!

Batten down those hatches, Bill. Here's hoping it's just rain.

Dan said...

immediately ship all books, comix, pulps etc to me for safe keeping!

I miss tropical storms. We used to go down to the beach to watch the big waves when you had a trop storm or weak hurricane. Actually kind of refreshing in August.

Or course, once those buggers hit 100 miles an hour, well, get yourself gone. Otherwise, enjoy the show, Bill. Be safe.

Mainly we're worried about being without electricity. I hope we don't lose power. We could use some nice rain. Wind, though, we don't need.

Hold the fort, Bill...and here's hoping you have no outages nor damages (do you have any equipment that needs backup these days, or is it more a no A/C kind of worry?).

Bill Crider said...

Computer's backed up. A/C is the main worry, and of course the refrigerator. We'll be fine, I'm sure.
