As Tropical Storm Matthew Comes …

My little island of 166 square miles is being affected right now by Tropical Storm Matthew.

My situation? Heavy heavy rain, howling winds turning my curtains into balloons, and dog resting up on the inside. My washing machine and any container available all filled with water, kettle sitting on the stove with fresh water nicely boiled, lunch/dinner waiting in the oven but here’s hoping everyone else in Barbados (and in the other islands on this storm’s path) will be safe!

PS: We are the first pink landmass outline from the right of the photo, kind of like in the middle of the map – in case international readers are wondering 😐



Have you ever been affected by really bad weather? How did you prepare in advance? What did you do as you waited for everything to pass? Share a note or two in the comments.
