Still Wet Out

Today there wasn’t much for rain, but we had cooler temperatures and wind. 

Oh yeah and our street is flooded again. After tonight we should be good with the flooding as the tides are lowering and the weather is supposed to turn as in we will actually maybe see the sun at some point tomorrow. 

I like the sound of that. 

Stepping In The Water

We’ve been getting hammered with coastal flooding the last few days. Luckily our house stayed dry. Today our street flooded more than the past few days and the water made it to the garage door. We sandbagged it and it didn’t come up to much and glad to say no water came in. 

 The start of the flooding

Our beach was a churning as the tide was rolling in. 

Getting higher

Making the best of the flooding. Kayak party anyone? Oh you didn’t know we had a lake in the neighborhood.


 Our dogs were enjoying our new riverfront property. 

And the water has made its way all the way up our driveway. 

It’s finally starting to go down but the street is still a bit of a river. Hopefully by morning it’ll be back to a road instead of a river. 

How I Got My Steps

Today the husband and I went on the great furniture hunt. We traipsed all over a couple of furniture stores. Some we walked circles around a few times looking and comparing different items. 

It took some time and stopping at a furniture outlet store to finally score what we had been looking for. And, SCORE we did. Found what we were looking for and at amazing prices. We managed to furnish 2 rooms for less than what it was going to cost us to furnish one. 

Oh and walking around those stores and moving stuff in and out of the house resulted in lots of steps today. 

And, here’s our new furniture 

We have 2 of these one on each side of the room. We have lots of stuff clearly. 

Say what yeah you’re not seeing things that couch and chair are seriously purple. 

Love It!!!!


So Joaquin may or may not be making his way towards us this weekend. 

I live a block and a half from the ocean. So, the husband and I are doing a little prepping. 

We headed on over to the store and picked up cases of water because we can always use that. Along with the water we picked up some canned goods. Not a ton but a few things. We have a freezer full of meat so we will be eating that as it thaws if the power does go out. 

We have the generator and will be keeping on an eye on the track of the storm and if it looks like it’s coming this way we will go fill all of the gas cans and the vehicles so that we are ready and prepared for any loss of electricity. 

Tomorrow we will be getting the garage cleaned out so that we can get my car into it. As we have some big trees in our yard and by being in the garage hopefully we won’t sustain any damage although it could come down on the roof and collapse on my car so there really is no guarantee. 

We have insurance for a reason. 

Anyone else in possibly the path of Joaquin?
