Well, our family weathered the storm (Hurricane Irma, that is) unscathed. We were thankful to not have any damage to our property. I think part of it was that we lost a lot of our fence last year because of Hurricane Matthew and Rudy spent a lot of time rebuilding it. So it was brand new.
Not gonna lie, these storms terrify me. I grew up surrounded by water but that was because I’m originally from Michigan. We don’t get any hurricanes in the Great Lakes! Maybe an occasional tornado and lots of lake effect snow, but no hurricanes.
I looked for hotel rooms in Georgia a week before the storm hit and everything was booked. The prices of airline tickets were astronomical. At one point, they thought it would hit southern Florida as a Cat 5 and I really, really wanted to leave but everything was gridlocked by then. I decided I would rather wait out the storm in my house rather than in a gridlocked interstate with no gas. We are in the west part of Jacksonville and not in an evacuation zone so that made me feel a bit better.
So we gassed up our vehicles, stocked up on bottled water, bought a generator, and waited for Irma.
Some people pace around the house when they’re nervous. Some people bite their nails. Some people are just plain cranky. Me? I cook. A lot. (I may have also been a little bit cranky.)
I think I made 5 or 6 recipes and did all the photo shoots in one day. So it was good for my nerves and also for my blog productivity. One of the recipes I made that day was my Spicy Peanut Sauce. So check that one out! Cassidy also insisted I make this Spinach Dip. We make it often because it is so tasty and easy. I usually make it for Thanksgiving and Christmas. And Easter and 4th of July. Also just randomly when I feel like it or have a Category 5 hurricane barreling towards me.
