The Oncoming Storm

Real Estate Agent with GreatWest Realty DRE# 00827565

My thoughts are with those along the East Coast, the likely path of hurricane Dorian.

"It seems that man has always teetered on the brink of extinction; whether by cataclysm or his own folly. Therefore I believe he should be kind to his neighbor, pray to any gods that are handy and if his wings are made of wax, he should not fly close to the sun."

Myrl,

What a picture, and what an amazing quote by Jacques Cousteau.  Many of us have wax wings.  I used to watch his shows and loved every moment.  A

Florida is reasonably close to the Carolinas, Myrl, so we are keeping a careful eye on the path of this storm as there's always a chance it will take a move north and hit our coastlines. I'm keeping everyone I know in Florida in my thoughts and prayers these days.

Sheila Anderson - Thanks!

Ron and Alexandra Seigel - I was fond of all of Jacque's shows too.  Loved every one of them!  The photo was taken in the Florida Keys at Islamorada.  I have concerns because a friend of mine lives on nearby Marathon Key.  They just finished licking their wounds from the last hurricane that hit there a couple of years ago!

Nina Hollander - Yes, I have watched tracking of past hurricanes which have moved north along the Atlantic coast after they have had their way with Florida.

Myrl this one looks to be a doozie.  Florida is in for a lot of flooding.

Hi Myrl- what a lovely photo!!!  While Larry and I are relieved that we are no longer living in Florida and having to prepare for the hurricane, we are also very concerned about our friends who are still there.

Myrl Jeffcoat, I love the photo, and the Jacques Cousteau quote and your 
thoughtful concern for all who are facing the Hurricane Dorian storm.  Our family, homes and businesses are in Metro Orlando and we have painted crosses above our doors and on our ancient huge Tucker Oaks.  Believe me, Myrl, you do not wish to have one uprooted and crashing down on one's property.  Just two doors away, when Hurricane Irma came through two years ago, one of those OAKS came crashing through the roof of a two story home, landing in the bedroom of our friends/neighbors who were lying in their bed.
Thank you from the East Coast to you in the West Coast for your prayers and concern.

I love that photo, Myrl Jeffcoat,

The Jacque Cousteau quote makes me stop and ponder especially the part about the waxwings and flying to close to the sun!

Myrl,

I read this quote to Ron this morning, and he loved it as much as I did.  Jacques Cousteau was one of his favorites too.  A

PS.

I meant to add that Ron also raved about your photo of Islamorada.  We are both hoping that our friend's home will be safe.  A

Myrl, the change in climate brings storm turmoil to the East every year now and this Hurricane Dorian is an absolute monster.The Bahamas will never be the same and we hope the states in the South are spared the damage it is bringing to many.

Hard ... and so very sad ... to believe that the calm and serenity showed in your photo could be disrupted for any reason, Myrl Jeffcoat ...

Praying that no lives are lost in the storm ...

Happy Friday to my friend, Myrl Jeffcoat !  My favorite part of the Jacques Cousteau quote and makes me laugh in my spirit and soul:
"...and if his wings are made of wax, he should not fly close to the sun."
