The National Hurricane Center is projecting that Tropical Storm Arthur will strengthen into a hurricane, and since Casa PBW is in its projected path we'll be making all the usual preparations. If you're in the same boat please do whatever you need to be ready (and if you're not sure, here's the NHC's advice.)
People are so used to me blogging daily that when I don't they tend to freak out a little, so I thought I'd let you all know upfront that I may be scarce again in the near future. Along with dealing with Arthur this Summer is going to be quite busy for me on the real life side of things. I have a lengthy road trip coming up soon, for example, and I'm not sure how much internet access I'll have while I'm traveling. There's also a slight chance that I'll have to put PBW on temporary hiatus for some weeks in August and September. Whenver I do have to be away from the blog for any length of time I will try to put up a notice. But if for some reason I don't, no worries -- I'll be back as soon as I can.
Last month I had a lot of fun with Just Write Thursdays, and I'd like to keep this as a weekly feature on the blog. With my Summer schedule being so hectic I'm going to have to put Just Write on hiatus now and then, too, starting next week. If Arthur allows I'll hold one more tomorrow, and then hold off on the next until the end of the month. Remember, you don't need me to keep writing, so if you want to keep on with it on your own blog while I'm away please do.
I appreciate everyone who stops by PBW, and thank you all in advance for your support.
