Getting ready for the "Pineapple Express"
I know we had been fortunate to have rain, even some fairly heavy rain, but it's a rehearsal for the real thing: 8 - 12" in the next few days - from the tropics. We call it the Pineapple Express.
It is also a windy one, so batten the hatches is important. So far I made sure we have drinking water stashed, made sure enough firewood is on the deck out of the rain, filled chicken's self-feeder, did pending laundry and am running the dish-washer (need to do that some more) make sure flash-lights and batteries are in place.
Will shower and wash my hair this evening, vacuum everywhere today, check food-supplies, give the house-plants a drink and then it may do whatever it does, sure the pond will fill, NOAA warns of small creeks and rivers flooding.
