After following my husband in my car, whom for some inane reason, decided to choose the creepiest Dawn of the Dead entrance he could for us to get back into town via the Old Sheldon Church road, which is not only scary as hell on its own, because of its history, but also took a thorough ass raping from the hurricane, making it look even more terrifying- we finally arrived home.
I’m tired as shit, but hey; not only is our power back on, but I also now currently have lake side property…. The water is ankle deep through almost my entire front lawn, which looks like a complete shit-hole.. I guess it matches the rest of the town at least. I have so much to do the next few days.. starting with cleaning out my fridge since the power was off for almost 4 days DX
I miss going through these storms as a kid where my parents handled all this shit. Being an adult sucks.
So, Beaufort took a direct hit on Saturday from hurricane Matthew. Both fortunately and unfortunately, however, my town is surrounded by the other barrier islands, Hilton Head, Fripp, St. Helena, etc. so those islands sadly took the brunt of the damage. However, Beaufort currently looks like a shit hole and is without power.
We were asked to not return for now, which I expected and makes sense. It’s not safe with the roads in their conditions, without power, and curfews in effect. Of course, from the reports we read, that didn’t stop many from trying to return only to get turned around by the national guard and those that stayed in town are out “sight seeing” and impeding the restoration/clean up. I don’t get the logic of some people. I understand their concern for their home but there’s not much they can do until the city is restored. There’s no power and nothing is even open . It’s really not rocket science here, think of it like this.. would a mother find it easier to clean her house with all of her kids running around or while they are at school? But now Beaufort PD is having to be pulled from other things to get the remaining citizens out of the way of the power company and other road workers.. they are delaying this process. Just let them do their damn jobs so we can all go home..
They have estimated Monday for us to return, but we’ll see. Hopefully I’m back home soon.
The storm hasn’t hit my town yet (we left though and are at a friends further inland of the state). However, we do live in the sea islands which is said to be in some of the worst danger zones due to storm surges so I hope it’s all good when I return.
My mother sent this image though. She lives in Jacksonville and the storm surge came up pretty far. That’s a friends home and yes that’s a shark in the water.
It would be lovely if you could stop being such a moody bitch. Seriously, sit back and drink some wine and spin your ass into exhaustion out in the middle of the Atlantic ocean, far away from people.
My town, is under mandatory evacuation here because of Hurricane Matthew. So, it’s likely we will be heading out today some time. The storm is not due to hit our area until Saturday, so I will be home some time after that, however, let’s hope power isn’t an issue then lol
I’ll try to keep in contact with everyone through my phone, but it might be a day or so. We have kids and pets (and computers lmao) to load up today and traffic is likely going to be a bitch, and we are taking both cars, so I’ll be driving.
I made a general gaming blog again, since I lost my last one with my old tumblr. I started it over a month ago, but have just finished it now, so I no longer will span anyone with my other game pictures. Of course if you are interested then feel free to follow here @aureliamoonplays
I also got inspired to redo my theme again for @simbollocks. The old one had a few annoyances for me, so I figured I may as well do them both now.. because I’m OCD..
I know I’ve been MIA. I was completely wiped for the week after driving to Florida to help my son move into his college apartment. When I FINALLY got a good night’s sleep and thought I’d get back to quasi normal.. this happened.
My kids found her, and she was maybe just at 4 weeks old, based on how she was walking. We couldn’t find her mom, and she belonged to no one. So, I’ve been taking care of her. She just got off the bottle a day or so ago. She’s very active and thriving, but like any baby.. takes a lot of work lol My other cats have hissed at her 5985 times now (makes me think of this video), but one actually goes and sleeps near her now. It’s my dog, Hercules, who is enthralled and protective of her. When the other cats came to check her out he chased them away lol Either way, none of them have been aggressive towards her.
In anycase, I have a test coming up on the 20th and I am studying for it during the days when my kids are in school. I have been playing games at night when i finally have some down time, Sims, WoW, Guild Wars 2, Fallout still.. etc lol. I always have grand plans to make posts of HML or show some updates to SOL world I have done, but then I end up passing out before 11, which is insanely early for me.
Anyway, I’m setting up the queue now and it should start today! Missed you all! ♥
So, I’m back. I’m so damn tired. I got home Sunday after midnight. In 48 hours, I did 15 hours of driving, and we moved my son from Tampa to Winterpark (Orlando area). I miss him like crazy, but I know this will be a great opportunity for him. However, I was very sad on my way home, and just tired and still adjusting.
I’m gonna try and restart the queue this week (I actually have quite a bit I haven’t posted). I possibly have a new certification test coming up, but there’s some other things going on too (nothing bad) so It’s a little up in the air, However, I am preemptively studying for it.
Then there’s also this…
After 2 years of being away and my son, and friends all telling me to come back to WoW, that Legion is amazing… well.. guess what. I did it. Plus, there’s still Fallout.
Last week was insane and this week will be just as bad, if not worse. I haven’t played anything in over a week now! I even installed my brand new video card the other day too! DX I’ve been so tired, that all I’ve been in bed before 10 pm every night.
This weekend I’m making a trip to Tampa to help my son and his best friend move to their apartment in Orlando to be close to his college campus. So, I’m looking at about 15-16 hours worth of driving time this weekend. All of that being said, next week things look a bit clearer! So, I’ll see you all then most likely!
