Irene Makes An Approach

None of these images are normal wave activity for our beaches in North Florida.

I can't tell you how windy it was and Irene is still over 400 miles away.

This view WAS not reassuring at all. I just pray that all of those in the direct path of this storm heed the warnings. If you have not been around a storm of this magnitude please pay attention to what the media is saying. Listen to the authorities and if they say evacuated, then do it. These things don't play around. Today as we were on the beach I kept looking at the homes dotted along the shoreline. The homes on our beaches are built right ON the water. I mean there is a small beach and then there is a house. I could see that the main route of A1A would be under water as it was just on the other side of the houses along the water's edge. In fact it was easy to see how the island we were on would be literally under water. I have great fears for what is about to happen.

This is the end of the St Augustine pier that is pictured in the above pictures.
They closed the pier at 3PM today!
It was too unsafe to be on the pier!!
Please everyone BE SAFE!


  1. purring for yours and everyone elses safety!

  2. We hope you'll also be safe--sending purrs and purrayers!

  3. A1A! Under water. I remember that route so well. I lived in Melbourne...Brevard Country... and used to go to Merritt Island via A1A.

    I am purring and mommy is praying for all who are threatened by this. And we are keeping ourselves in touch with the weather. xoxox

  4. We are all purring and praying for everyone in the path of evil Irene.

  5. Please please please be safe!! Me and Charlie are keeping you all in our thoughts! Take care

  6. We are getting a little bit scared up here in NJ.

  7. I send a ton of purrs for all of you to be safe !
    Please Take Care

  8. We are purring very hard for all of those who may be affected by the hurricane.

  9. Well over here in Nova scotia its getting pretty windy, maybe from irene? Anywho, hope everyone stays safe!

  10. Abby, that doesn't look good. Please be safe.

    I'm praying for all in the path of this storm and hope it won't be as bad as predicted when it hits land.


  11. Yow! that is skeery! We are purring for everyone's safety. Take care-

    Pip, Smidgen, Minnie, Hollie

  12. A lot of people who lost their beach homes to Hugo in SC built right back on the beach! I hope everyone is safe.

  13. Yikes, that's scary. I hope you and yours stay safe!

  14. The waves are amazing! Mom and Dad went up to the beach tonight to see them but they got caught in one of the rain bands. We're still getting wind and we can hear the surf pounding. We're glad Florida is spared but are really worried about our pals up north.

  15. Oh stay safe handsome Ping! I do not like that you are that close to the storm. Purrs t oour east coast kitty friends

  16. We understand. We lived in south Louisiana. We have family in Atlanta, and like you guys are, we have friends we wuz all along the East coast. We sure are purring hard all you stay safe. Gosh we'd be getting skeered.

  17. My mom lives in FL and came to NY last week for a visit. Irene missed where she lived, so she got hit with her here... Living on a barrier island, it was pretty scary. We had to evacuate, and we listened. Where I live, after a manditory evacuation, they raise the bridges, so if you don't leave when you should, you cant... pretty scary. Alex did amazing though, even though he had to room in a house with two dogs!


We always love hearing from you please leave some pawprints!
Happy purrs
