Wesley Chapel, Florida
We have been keeping very busy since we got back to Florida.
The weather has cooled down some and we’ve actually been able to turn off the air conditioning at night. That’s a big plus for us!
We’ve spent the past two weeks visiting doctors. I’m the worlds worst about avoiding doctors so that’s a big thing for me We both went to a dermatologist for a routine skin check. After living in Florida 30 years, we both had some sun damage. They froze 3 little pre cancer cells off my face and took a biopsy sample from both of us. They didn’t think either of us had a problem, it was more precautionary, but we’ll both feel better when we get the biopsy results in a few weeks.
Our next thing is sinus surgery for Al. He’s been having sinus problems for years and finally decided to break down and get the surgery. That will be done tomorrow morning. Wish him luck. We’re hoping he won’t be out of commission too long because next week is supposed to be beautiful here with daytime temps in the 70’s!
Right now we’re keeping an eye on Hurricane Sandy. She’s sitting down just north of Cuba and is predicted to skirt the east coast of Florida, then head north with a possible landfall in the New England states. If Sandy veers left instead of right, it could get pretty ugly somewhere along the eastern seaboard. Although they are not predicting any issues for the Gulf coast of Florida, it’s hard to ignore that big blog that appears to be coming right at us. I know many of our blogger friends are on the east coast of the country right now. I hope you are all keeping an eye on this monster storm. Stay safe! The winds are about 105 mph right now.
Please note that “cone of uncertainty” looks to be far offshore, but as the storm becomes subtropical the winds will spread out further. There are tropical storm warnings right now for the east coast of Florida.
Remember hurricane season doesn’t end until November 30th.
