Little Man is back with the sore throat, earaches, and fever. I wondered why he had absolutely no appetite for the past 2 days. Now I know. So I'll be on the phone first thing in the AM in the hopes of getting him an appointment.
I think it's about time for antibiotics. This is the start of week THREE of this. Poor Little Man!
Fires, floods, and earthquakes...oh my!
We have a Cat IV hurricane bearing down on the islands at the moment. Word has it that it will track south of us and the most we'll see is a fair amount of rain and gusty winds. We need the rain. My grass is thirsty. I'll be charging batteries tonight and making sure that both cars have full tanks of gas. We're well-stocked on food and water so I'm not worried there. Though I do plan to hit Costco tomorrow but I had planned to do that before the hurricane forecast. And thankfully we live toward the middle of the island.
In addition, there is a nasty brushfire up toward the North Shore. It managed to shut down the 2 major roads up to the North Shore yesterday which made for some difficulties but that's about it. No structures have been threatened and hopefully the rain from the hurricane will knock it out.
And, as if life weren't interesting enough...the Big Island was hit with a lovely earthquake this evening. 5.4 magnitude. No damage reported but someone pissed off Mother Nature. Whoops!
Always an adventure, eh?
