HURRICANES

Someone sent me these cartoons in an e-mail and I thought I'd post them. The hurricane season is a busy one so far this year. I feel bad for the folks that live where they hit. I can't imagine having to board up my windows and move out and leave things and then wonder what you'll have left to go home to, or even if there'll be a home waiting when you get back. Therefore I'm glad I don't live in those areas. I know that things happen everywhere but those hurricanes are mighty rough and they cover a big area. Tornado's are the biggest threat here, but they seem to hit all over anymore, even up in the northern states. An earthquake could also happen anywhere. We just never know about those things.
(You can click on these to enlarge them)






I especially liked this one! If only Florida could squeeze in up there! What a difference in the weather they'd have there in that colder climate. I'm sure some would be wanting to move it back south before long!







I do hope everyone has managed to stay out of harm's way with these hurricanes. I know that Ike is churning along out there and remains a threat. Hopefully he'll weaken instead of strengthening.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. Keep on the sunny side!

We finally just got out from under the clouds of Gustav today! We had rain and gusty winds all week but no flooding, praise the Lord. Now we have Ike and then Josephine to worry about, and Hanna is tearing up the East coast.

I love the sign! :o)

Have a great remainder of your weekend, Rachel.

Love and hugs,

Diane

Well, we dodged the bullet with Gustav but Ike looks like a real threat. So far, all of the models show it coming pretty close to us. Ike is already a Cat. 4 storm, with a well formed eye. This has been a really active hurricane season and I will be glad when it is over. I keep praying that we don't take a direct hit form one of the storms.

I loved your cute comics of hurricane season. I'll bet New Orleans is putting those storm shutter up again and will have to evacuate people all over again. Wouldn't it be great if we could just move Florida up to the north during hurricane season?...lol The plywood state sounds like a good name to me...lol. TF's parents live on the east coast side of Florida and I am always worrying about them.

Love your church sign....Have a great week Rachel.

In heard that Ike is a Category 4 at this point...Oh Dear! I hope he weakens, too Rachel. Like you, I cannot imagine how that would be to have to leave and not know what you might find when you came back!

Those a GREAT Cartoons! I too, liked that Map one.....It's funny to see Florida waaaay up there, isn't it?
Stay safe my dear, and have a lovely Sunday!

LOL @ the Sunday sign! It's perfect!

Looks like Ike is moving further west than expected avoiding Florida altogether, but you never know what these storms will do at the last minute. Andrew had the same path in '92, and I don't want to even think about that one!

I love the cartoons! I'm going to forward them to all the locals for a good laugh. We need one.

I am with you Rachel. I am so glad I don't live in those places. They are so nice to visit but I don't think I could stand the stress of the storms and leaving home. The jokes are great and love the sign.

That's rather black humour, lol ! I too am not used at all to such catastrophes, the only thing we once had was a very strong storm but nothing in comparison to a hurrican !Such a situation is hard to imagine. Poor people !!na

Rachel ~ FUNNY FUNNY cartoons. But really it seems like enough is enough with the hurricans this year doesn't it? Of course here it the midwest we have to worry about the tornados. So I guess no place is perfect! ~ jb///

Hi Rachel! We had a brush with Hanna yesterday. Nothing major some wind and about three inches of much needed rain. I feel for the people in the south too.
Cute cartoons. Great Sunday sign. Lisa

LOL loved those cartoons/postcards! Like you, I can't even imagine being a part of those hurricanes in full force!! We had the remnants of Gustav on Friday but it felt just like a normal storm, albeit very heavy rain at times. I don't know how those people can stand it, one hurricane after another!!! xoxo

Gustav visited us when he was all worn out and could only give us a rainy day. Hanna made a hard right and decided to come to Eastern Canada, it is lovely this time of year. i think she is kick up a storm in Newfoundland tonight.

Yikes Ike! don't send him this way.

We get very few dramatic narural events here. This winters are just a little longer and colder. Winter can be fun too.

Hi Rachel, I like your church sign. Those Florida jokes are OK too.
Our relatives are still without power. The two that we can account for that is. No idea what has happened to the others.

We evacuated Baton Rouge with the others last Saturday night, next week Ike may come see us here.

We had a big storm that knocked out the electricity for a few hours. I guess it was the remnants of Gustav.

Funny cartoons!

Beautiful flowers in the post below. Are they your's?

Those hurricanes are really stirring things up this year, aren't they? It's good to see some haven't lost their sense of humor.

Hi dear Rachel,
I am so glad you are well and live in far away the hurricane way.
I agree with Judy, run away from the the storms and leaving home, is much stress.

Love the jokes and the sign, too.

Have a nice week ahead!

Hope the hurricane seasons all end before we head for Corpus Chrisi the end of this month! Did you see that Jamie Dawn and her family had their fair share?

Hi Rachel....I wanted to come back and tell you about my latest post. It's some flowers from a Succulent on my deck. They are SOOOO Pretty....I almost wish they were edible....lol...For all I know, they may be! If you get a chance, come on by.

Hi Rachel. Thank you for your nice compliment this morning. Some say I'm photogenic. :-)

Most call me cute, only one person (on Jim1Jim1 YouTube with me and the Christmas tree--I dare you to drag that to your Google Tool Bar) ever said I was the opposite. ;-)

We hope you are doing fine, please have a nice day.

We all need to pray for the ones who are in the path of all these hurricanes.

Love the sign!

Ike looks to be making its way towards Texas, unless it takes an unexpected turn. I feel sorry for those states right on the gulf since they really take the brunt of the hurricanes.

Those cartoons are cute. Florida does kind of stick out there in a vulnerable position. Maybe they would like to be able to squeeze in somewhere and be more protected.

I can't imagine being in the path of a hurricane. How frightening!
Love your Sunday sign!

I love the cartoon with Florida tucked up there in the north, too funny. I got so busy a hurricane came and went without me knowing about it.
