Happy Thursday to all you fine folks.
Perhaps you've heard of Hurricane Fiona. She's the storm that is responsible for the devastation in Puerto Rico. What with all the exhaustive and inexplicable coverage of the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II (of ENGLAND!) by US American news media, you might have forgotten about Puerto Rico, which is part of the US of A (as opposed to ENGLAND!).
Anyway, Fiona is headed north, and where I live is right in her crosshairs. She's due to hit sometime on Friday, and some meteorological models suggest that she could still be as strong as a category 2 or 3 when she hits. So, I've just spent most of the day getting our yard "storm ready." We have an extensive garden and a portable greenhouse, so there was a fair bit to do.
I just came in, and I'm tired.
As luck would have it, tonight's game is between Pittsburgh and Cleveland. I can't stand Pittsburgh. And as for Cleveland, I used to feel sorry for them, but since they signed Deshaun Watson, I have no choice but to loathe them and hope they lose every game. However, since the thought of cheering for Pittsburgh is ICK, I had no intention of watching the game anyway.
So, enjoy the game, if that's what you're into.
Wish me luck with the storm.
And don't forget about Puerto Rico.
