Monday musings

I'm on it, Mom!

We are still working on repairs to da house so I am still busy snoopervising da work.

Tomorrow da ceiling repair guy comes and when he came for da estimate, I thoroughly checked him out (lots of good smells on dem boots).   I can't wait!

Hurricane Flo Update:

  • Schools are still closed.  Some are still being used as shelters and others have major damage.
  • The college (UNC @ Wilmington) is still closed.  
  • Some entire neighborhoods were totally destroyed.  
  • Most major roads are now open and supplies are getting in (food, gas, water, etc.)
  • Temporary housing and supplies for those displaced is still a Major Issue.
  • FEMA's help is questionable (lots of stories about people who loss everything are being rejected).
  • Blue tarps are everywhere.
  • Huge backlog (weeks/months) for Insurance Adjusters, Roofers, and almost all Trades.
  • Mosquitos are everywhere (swarming) and they are spraying in neighborhoods and by the air to try to control the issue.
  • Ocean waters (beaches) are currently not safe to swim in (too polluted from run-off and coal ash spill.
  • Most rivers and now at normal levels (with a couple of exceptions that are still at flood stage).
  • 32 deaths in NC and the total in the Carolinas (NC+SC) and Virginia is 43
  • We are an agricultural state and an estimated 5,500 hogs and 3.4 million chickens and turkeys have already died as a result of Florence.
  • So far, 700 people have filed complaints with our State Attorney General's office for price gouging.  Grrrrrrrrrr.... it's just not right to take advantage of peeps that have had so much damage.



  1. Sounds like it's still a mess with a capital M. Price gouging is just WRONG.

  2. We'll be glad when everything goes back to normal where you are, Ranger.

    Oh, and about National Black Doggie Day: my angel sister Miss Ginger had beautiful black furs with tan points. I'm waiting for Doggies with Freckles Day.

  3. Never look to FEMA for help, only hindrance.

  4. You are one fine specimen of a FABulous Black doggie...and a pawsome snoopervisor!
    I hopes all those peeps and animals can gets the help they needs. I thinks it's terrible that some peeps think price gouging is the thing to do!!!! really?? I hopes they go to the pig slop!
    Sendin' lots of AireZens your way, and give an update on the good boot smells, k?

  5. OMD, we didn't realize things were still so bad there. :(

  6. Oh Ranger, what a difficult time folk in your state are enduring. Gail and I do hope more help comes to those who need it, and soon. But we are confident that at least some of the work will have first class snoopervision.
    Toodle pip!

  7. We saw where there are giant Mosquitos gosh fleas are bad enough why itchy must be terrible. We saw the Cintas/Tide/Procter & Gamble trailer trucks pull out of Matthew 25 Ministries from Nati heading your way last week. They help.
