William's Blog...with a smile!


The Storm is coming...are you ready?

Yes, there is a storm a brewing.

The weatherman has been forecasting for days.

Right now, the storm clouds are forming and will bare down on us soon.

We have drinking water on hand and I tested our generator.

Cars are gassed up and we have plenty of food to last a long time.


Yes, we go overboard...maybe, but when I look at those that lose everything or just have heavy damage I know that I am ready if the need arises.

The need may not be for us but a friend or neighbor.


It is a personal decision, but I don't like being unprepared.




It may look calm, but it is the calm before the storm.

Good evening William Feela ,

Always better to be prepared than caught off guard!

William Feela I hope the storms passes without incident! I'm used to East Coast hurricanes, but that doesn't mean I think storms are fun.

Hi William

I hope the meterologists are wrong, but better to be prepared.

I thought you meant storm clouds in real estate. They may be coming as well. Just when the end of this cycle will be, is about as hard as predicting the weather. And, you should be ready for both!

Good morning William.  Just cloudy with a slight chance of rain.  Goodness knows we have had our share so far this season.

We do have good weather reporting that allows us to stock up and rearrange our schedules when inclement weather is coming. Stay safe, Bill.

Good morning William, I hope you were safe during the storm.  We have had a lot of rain this year as well.

I like how you highlight the need to be prepared for "neighbor's" sake, William Feela ... as well as your own.  I deeply respect that ...

It is always good to be prepared, we tend to slack off when nothing happens in a while... then when it does we are not ready...Endre

I'm with you William, always better to be prepared then caught out in the cold or without power and nothing to help you get through.

Take care.

We are generally prepared for anything, and it seems that the storms are continuous this summer.
