Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: Isaias Has Left the Building

thankful thursday blog hop brian 08062020

Hello everyone, thanks for stopping by for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. You all know that I am always thankful to each of you for joining us! Each and every Thursday we share the things for which we are most thankful and we always enjoy reading all of the things you are thankful for too. If you are new to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, thanks for hopping in, we really do get excited when new blogger pals join us!

Today I’m thankful that Hurricane/Tropical Storm Isaias has left the building.  I know the storm wreaked havoc from North Carolina all the way up the eastern seaboard, but we got off lucky here and we’re really thankful for that.

Even though we’re inland, it’s not unusual for us to be affected by the rain bands with tropical systems.  In this case, the big frontal boundary that was helping to block Hurricane Isaias from the coast was parked right over our neck of the woods.  That front had some heavy thunderstorms that were about to collide with one of the storm bands from Isaias.  At the last possible minute all of the severe storms fell apart and we just got rain.

We send purrs, prayers and well wishes to all of those affected by Isaias and we hope all is well for everyone super soon.  What about you, what are you thankful for today?  Tell us in your comments and then join us for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

    What a huge blessing for you! We live right where hurricanes do plenty of damage, so i know the feeling of both relief and sorrow when they hit, relief if they did not hit you mixed with great sorrow for those affected.

    That’s a big thankful that you didn’t suffer the brunt of the storms. I’m thankful for the beautiful day we had today. It The temperature was mild and I had open windows until after lunch. Sometimes we have to close out the heat by 9 or 10 am.

    Oh Brian! We are so happy you are all safe. We don’t know anything at all about hurricanes, and honestly we are grateful we don’t have to! (Just an occasional earthquake!)

    We are so glad you guys escaped the storm without a lot of problems. We thought we were okay, and then today, after the storm passed, we lost power for about 5 hours. So strange. But we’re fortunate. The reports are that there are still about 600,000 people without power in our state. Yikes.

    We are happy that that hurricane is gone and that you are OK!!
    WE know what hurricanes can do and we are in Canada!
    Our province just sticks out in the water in a potential path of hurricanes 😉

    Florida was protected by that same front that was pushing against it and pushing the storm away from us. But it was still really bad for some of the East Coast. We’re thankful that the storm is gone. And thankful that none of our blog friends or harmed by the storm

    Oh Brian. Our CB furriends were affected in several States and it is awful to think of. So far we have escaped the tornadoes usually affecting us here. I hope that continues. So glad you all are safe.

  8. Teddy and Pam

    Glad you all were OK from the storm – we got some of those “bands” of rain in northern Virginia but closer to the Eastern shore they had it really bad in some spots. We are grateful to be inland. BYE BYE Isaias.

    Hugs, Teddy

    Glad u are all safe. Here on the East Coast we did fine except for lots of tree limbs in our yard but no power loss (cable down briefly). Our 2 children who live 25 min and 50 min away lost .power for about 7 hours each

  10. Sandee

    What a wonderful thankful today. It’s always good that you get very little of what could have been most awful.

    I’m thankful that I found you.

    Thank you for hosting the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

    Have a purrfect Thankful Thursday. My best to your siblings and your peeps. ♥

    I’m very glad the severe storms broke up and didn’t hit your area! Having been in one and near many, I’m always relieved when the conditions change for the better at the last minute! Beautiful kitty picture today!

    Brian we are thankful too for the non impact on our area here in FL from Isaias. What a weird storm that was. But we are glad you had no impacts too and we just hope any who did will soon be made whole.

  14. Edith Chase

    I’m glad you are safe. We got heavy rains and wind, but we didn’t loose our power.

  15. The OP Pack

    We are very thankful to hear that the worst of the storm missed you. We live in the middle of the country so we don’t have to worry much about hurricanes, other than residue rain. But those tornadoes can be very worrisome. We hope all those hurt by the storm in any way will find ways to recover. It must be awful to be without power for so many days.

    And good riddance to that storm! We didn’t fare too badly, though we did lose our power for a few hours. Some people in our area still don’t have their power back!

    Happy Thankful Thursday!! We are glad that you just had some rain and thats it. We had some winds and heavy rain for thirty minutes, but it moved very quickly north.Thanks for sharing. Have a great day.

    I am thankful that you are okay. When I was a little kid, I rode out a hurricane with my family in a house on stilts on the Outer Banks. It was crazy – we should have evacuated. But we survived. Due to that experience, I have some notion of what these storms might be like for you. Every one that passes without hurting you is a victory.

  19. Kitties Blue

    We hope you can forgive us for not being around, visiting and commenting very much. Our mom is very depressed and some days, like today, are worse than others. We are happy you dodged the storm. We have had lots of rain, but it missed us as well. Brian, you are looking mighty handsome.

    We are glad you did not suffer a lot of damage from the storm. We got lucky. We just got a lot of wind.

    Stay safe during this rainy/ stormy season. Prayers for all in the storms path. Always happy to see the great photos and stories too. I have struggled with difficulties all day trying to post at blogger. I may have to look for another alternative. Have a good weekend. HUGS across the miles XO
