I’m worried about my “Shadow” in these days. He’s in southern Florida at the moment, right in the path of Irma, which will hit his house as a Category 5 hurricane. He’s pretty frantic. Many times in text messages and phone calls I’ve invited him up to stay with me here in Western North Carolina. I hope he’s on his way, at least to get to a county shelter where he is. The storm surge map on NOAA looks like his house would be part of the ocean, with waves way over that level. He’s just sent me a text saying that he’s worried about people that he helps down the way.
Update: So, my “Shadow” survived, and well. Not even the drywall was affected. But, he might need some chainsaw work. Lots of trees and power lines down all around.
