Houston, we have a problem.

I moved everything away from the windows.
I bought all the necessary food, water, and supplies.
I put away all breakables.
I packed all my important papers and photos.
I packed my clothes.
I packed my cat.
I packed cat food and kitty litter.
I called my parents, who were relieved because they've been trying to get a hold of me all day.
(Apparently, all circuits are busy.)
I moved everything from my deck to my garage.
I got cash.
I filled up with gas.

And when I finish typing this blog, I'm packing my computer. It's coming with me.

See y'all on the flip side. Yee Haw!!!

Merry Widow Out.
