Three Sandhill Cranes were across the street from the motorhome, one was kneeling down, which I had not seen before. They moved about twenty feet and the same crane went down on its knees again. It looked rather sad like that. Then, when the other two had moved on further, it gave two wing flaps and was standing back up and walking again.
We went to the house twice today, mostly just to get out and about. Although we did pass some houses with workers, no laborers were laboring at our house on Labor Day. I think they should all have a holiday.
We have been watching Irma closely. We were planning to drive the car to Maryland on Wednesday for Joey Cumberland’s wedding. But, this evening, all the storm trackers and models seem to agree that the storm is going right up Florida. We can’t wait a few days to see what happens and make it to the wedding. So, we agreed tonight to leave for parts north tomorrow. We’ll watch the storm as we go and, as soon as we decide it is safe, will leave the motor home parked somewhere and then drive the car on to Maryland.
