As we told you yesterday, we went to the Blessing of the Pets yesterday afternoon. We went to the service at Patrick Air Force Base because it is 5 minutes from home. Our regular church is farther away and we're not happy in the car.
The service was well attended for a small parish and the priest did a great job. He did the blessing quickly because it was REALLY hot out. You can hardly hear him because there was a beagle that is there every year who barks through the whole service. Raz says that any rumors that he pooped in his carrier are wildly exaggerated.
As many of you know, we are in the path of Hurricane Matthew. Last night they issued a "mandatory" evacuation for us because we live on a barrier island. As of right now, we are not planning on leaving. We have lots of food, water, batteries, lights, a generator and solar powered phone charger. Dad put up some of the shutters we have yesterday and the rest will go up today. Mom puts us all in a big crate when the storm comes through so we are safe and protected. Please pray that Matthew either goes through quickly or just fizzles out and goes away. We sure hope we don't lose power for 9 days like we did with Hurry Cane Frances.
