I hear ya, Myself. That's why all the outside furniture and possible projectile missles have been secured indoors.
The waves are so hypnotic. I'll try to keep taking pictures but 2-D just doesn't get the sense of the height and power of the waves.
Right now the waves are so high that you cannot see the horizon behind them. Sitting on the first floor, they are over our heads but crash and level out before the wash up to our picket fence. Yes Mike would be standing in water now.
Nina, the core of our house is cement block. It was built back in '49, so we know where to go to stay out of the wind. But I tell ya, the tidal surge is very scary looking. Opal went through the whole house and out the front doors. (Steve had boarded up and moved furniture, but still everything got wet).
AND we will leave it the storm turns towards us. We are no fools.......well.........that's debatable. lololol
I'm just glad I got my mom to leave her home this morning. She lives on the east side of Moble bay. Talk about direct hit and bad side of the storm.
*back to staring at the waves*
to Sixer. lol
ps to Steve E.-- NO COOKIES
