Ian update 4 am

 


I used up a whole days battery power pulling My Radar up on the Chromebook! Watching Ian get closer and closer. I hope this plays for you, it is a video snip of the radar. Look closely at the blue dot center top and below you can see the eye is moving towards us. 

snip of video just in case it will not play for you


I got tired of fretting and watching the TV weather guys, on 6 channels, to see if they all agreed. at 1 pm THEY said rain starting tonight, Tuesday at 6,  and Ian should be turning to the East about 30 miles south of us which made me feel so good I took a photo of the flashlight, candles and oil lamp to say 

About six hours until Ian comes on shore, color me Scared To Death! 

 I have charged everything chargeable. I really hated the photo so I PLAYED IN PICMONKEY! Shocked! Right??

First - sending you positive vibes and wishes for safety; you are well organised and that counts for lots.

Second - and only because I know you like the geeky stuff; I think you may have loaded the radar as 'image' rather than 'video' on your edit page, so it definitely doesn't play. Not that it matters, one can see the size and threat just from this... YAM xx

With weather like that heading my way I would be right there along side you fretting also. So glad to hear Ian will be turning.

Here in a little while I'll probably be glued to the Weather Channel ... my 'to do' list can wait.
Fingers crossed and prayers said!

I'm keeping you in my prayers this morning. We are going to cook some more and walk around the house to make sure everything is done. I would hate to lose power! Take care! Let me know how you are. hugs, Diane

I was reading the news and saw pictures of the damage in Cuba. I hope the storm did not affect your area. Get back to me when you can.

Just watched news of Ian on the news on Swedish television... Seems awfully close now. Thinking of you!!!

Inger said...

Funny, I too watched the news of Ian on Swedish TV and read their paper. That was yesterday, so I will go back now and check again. We just drove 50 miles back from Bakersfield. That's very close as far as hurricanes of Ian's size goes. Then the rain and the flooding. This will take a long time to clear up. I'm so sorry you have to deal with this now. Sendin love.

CheerfulMonk said...

I'm still watching with fingers and toes crossed. Hurray for Picmonkey! I figure we're not completely helpless when we can create something.

Millie and Walter said...

We are keeping our paws crossed for you and all our friends in Florida and we hope to hear you are all okay soon.

roentare said...

You have a fascination of the storm like a stormchaser almost. So good to see this degree of interest in this weather.

Grandma C said...

Waiting for each and every post to see how your doing. Hang in there and hold on tight.

Linda said...

I've been praying for you all day long! Thank you for the update....

photowannabe said...

I have been glued to the computer live stream about Ian.
Praying for you and all. Praying for peace and for your jitters.
Love you dear friend.
Sue

Marvelous Marv said...

We have been praying for you. I too would have been doing what you have (and not sleeping either). Love Barb

My Mind's Eye said...

I know you don't have power but when you do...please know you are being thought of each day.
Hugs Cecilia

Not sure where you live…Palm Harbor here

Praying you got through the monster hoping water level at your place was not high as some places. Worst ever in your sate. Ugh
We had 4 provinces hit by previous. Things are just awful.
It hurts when you have friends but cannot help from afar except to pray and hpe.HUGS for your family.

Susan from Bucks County said...

Just want to let you know that I am thinking of the 3 of you. Hope you get electricity soon and there is no damage to your home and (most important) you are all ok.

You do need miracles. How terrible. Prayers your way.

Jo said...

Oh my word Sandra, what a scary time you are going through. I need to read your most recent post to see how you have come out of this terrible time. Sending you love, prayers and positive thoughts. Jo xx

Jo said...

PS The radar played for me. My eyes bulged at the sheer might of Ian. Oh be safe my friend!
