To my friends and family in Virginia and North Carolina, please be safe. It looks like Florence is only heading to Virginia and North Carolina at the moment, and possibly to DC.
We’ve been inundated with rain from Hurricane Gordon over the last week. To the point where the county I live in is not under a drought conditions at all in September. I’ve seen a few warnings about flooding instead. It hasn’t been too bad where I am, but it’s been interesting.
Off topic, my dog saw a skunk in the yard last night, and thought it was a cat. She hates cats, so she attacked and got sprayed. My husband got sprayed as well. I don’t think the dog liked the taste, as she kept digging her muzzle in the dirt while we were trying to figure out the best way to deal with it. We did wash her up with peroxide, baking soda and dish detergent, which is supposed to be more effective than tomato juice. The smell is still there, but faintly. I really need to give her another bath, but it’s hard for just one adult.
I’ll see how it smells when I get home tonight.
