Yes. I will wait to get a fur friend until after my furniture is here, which could take up to ten business days as I chose a company that piggybacks onto other moves. A small price to pay for what I'm saving.

In the meantime I can get everything I need to make sure the cat will be comfortable.

Dee has been wonderful. She's loaned me a rollaway bed & a lawn chair for my patio & has given me much advice in getting things done here. A true friend I am very thankful for.

They do require it if - and only if - you live in a flood zone.
Hope you're OK enough to pack up and leave - or - are you high enough that you'll cover windows and stay?

I'm okay so far....can't say whether that will still be the case come Sunday! All of Miami Beach is under mandatory evacuation, so we won't be in the condo, not that we would have been there anyway. We'll be staying in our house in the City of Miami, two miles southwest of downtown and about a mile inland from Coconut Grove and the waters of Biscayne Bay.

If it wasn't for my medical issues, we definitely would have packed up the car and gone to stay with relatives in Orlando. Unfortunately, I'm in no condition to travel and, in fact, am supposed to be admitted to the hospital again on Tuesday morning to begin my 4th cycle of chemo. So we'll be hunkering down in our house with a supply of bottled water, batteries, flashlights, candles, and other hurricane supplies. Our house was built in 1925 so it's made it through quite a few hurricanes. Hopefully, it will make it through one more.

Wow so happy to come here and see Meo is moved and happy- Escort Rider's young friend got his transplant and is doing well, and that MMof B is also reporting in and doing ok.
Have a good Thursday everyone- stay safe.

MMoB: Wishing you an uneventful stay in Orlando. I have a cousin there so hoping Irma skirts around that area.

Also good thoughts coming your way during your next hospital stay and 4th cycle of chemo.

Take care.

I hope Orlando will work out. Certainly better than Miami I would think but , unfortunately, still to early to be sure.
I can't see escaping, at the very best, extremely strong winds here in Naples.
I have a double wide and for sure, am not going to sit in it.

I am thrilled with my new apartment. A washer & dryer in the apartment, a sweet patio outside my front door, an actual bathtub (the old apartment only had a shower). I've taken a real bath every night - that's how much I missed a bathtub.

I love,love,love Arizona.

I was amazed at the prices in the stores too. So much cheaper than Minnesota. And everyone I've met is so friendly.

So glad I took the plunge & moved here.

My apartment is also handicapped friendly & it is so easy for me to get around in it. Didn't even realize how much of a difference it would make until I got here.
So happy for you, meo! It sounds like you have definitely found a great fit for being "home." Looking forward to reading about your adventures and discoveries in your new place.

Hope everyone in Florida, the gulf area, and the Atlantic Coast stays safe from harm. If only the water from Harvey could have been sent up to the unusually dry Pacific Northwest and assist firefighters in putting out the forest fires.

I think you both misread my post. I said that I would have gone to Orlando, but I'm not really able to travel so we'll be riding out the storm in our house in Miami.
