1  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: Traveling Little Visitor Swap Round 25 (SU 03/16-03/29 SO 04/05 and 09/15) on: September 22, 2017 01:17:21 PM
It's so funny, here in Florida I'm the opposite. It's just too darn hot to be outside in summer so I struggle to leave the house and do anything. When it's a feels-like of 106f (41c) it's just stupid to leave the comforts of air conditioning! LOL

with birthday and holidays, we are taking a trip to Area 51 and Death Valley, then stopping in Lake Tahoe. Not to mention weve got a trip planned to see Nevadas Nuclear Test Site coming up so they would get to see the largest man made crater. Living in Vegas has so much we could do to keep a visitor busy, who wouldnt want their pic taken with Elvis or a million dollars...
Oh that sounds like some adventures!

I'm home! I just got done setting my pc up just checking in. I posted some videos on my facebook during my evac and my "facebook live" video even featured Aurora.  Grin

Thankfully, we're some of the lucky ones with power. So I had a hot shower and a hot meal for the first time in 2 days. It was glorious.

Mostly, it's downed leaves, small branches and debris. We really dodged a bullet here because it weakened a lot before it hit us.


We set up in an office building so we were on air mattresses in a conference room with our cats. LOL





We kept walking right out the front door to look at (and feel) the weather. Here is from about 10pm:



Overall though, we came through unscathed. Tired and we have a lot of unpacking to do and we really need a solid night's sleep but we're safe. Thanks to everyone for their well wishes!

Aurora might be getting a first experience for any LV - mandatory hurricane evacuation! We're heading out this evening and will be hunkering down with friends about 20 minutes from my apartment in a cat 5 rated building. Power and internet will likely be spotty for awhile so bear with me.

If anyone needs to reach me, best way to try is my gmail email - memoryanddream AT gmail.com - since it goes on google's servers and I can get it on my cell. Again, that's just in case of emergency. I'll also be posting updates on my fb as possible ( www.facebook.com/missmturner )

Aurora is already packed in my purse so she's evacuating with me. It should be an experience!

National hurricane center for those wanting to keep up with it: http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/

See you on the other side!

We were in the path of totality for the eclipse.  I don't think I've ever experienced something so awesome.  I can understand now why people chase these all over the world.  My little point & shoot didn't take the best picture, but here's Clara at totality.
I am so jealous of totality! I am seriously planning to go see totality now as soon as possible. Even 81.5% was amazing. Cheesy


And...


CONGRATS Wildfyre!!!

In less happy news, I'm in Florida. So Hurricane Irma is scaring the crap out of all of us. I'm on the west coast of the state and the current tracks are showing it touching on the east coast, but....the storm is bigger than the state is wide. So we're still going to have some intense weather here. Hard to say to what degree until it gets closer. I may lose power this weekend. So, just a head's up.

Lola finally got to go out, and....  we met up with Eamea and Clara!

I didn't get many pictures of the show, because I was having too much fun chatting with Eamea, who I found a sweet, lovely, and utterly charming person!  It was so much fun meeting up, then explaining to people how we "knew" each other! Cheesy
Awesome!! I love LV meetups! I got to meet Inselaeffchen a couple rounds ago when she and her family came to Disney. So nice to hear you guys had a good time. Hope the visitors had fun too! Grin

Here in Tampa, Florida we were only 81.5% but it was still super cool! I had a filter for my telephoto camera lens but not any glasses. So I mainly looked through my lcd screen. Aurora, being smaller in scale, was able to use the filter a little more than I could. Might not be the most flattering look, but it worked. Cheesy



And here's a pic I took:

I love the Weinermobile! Grin

Wait, is that the stuff that has no artificial sweeteners?  If so, that's what I used to love!  It seems all the flavored waters now have Nutrasweet/aspartame in them, so they're off limits for me.  I was so disappointed when I couldn't find the drinks with just regular sugar.
Yes!! They're carbonated water, CANE SUGAR, and natural flavors. They stopped making them back in the 90's. A new group bought the rights a few years ago, started a kickstarter and have been working on getting them back into production in the original blue "teardrop" bottles, with the original formula and they are finally getting *some* production out there - though it's still practically a unicorn sighting finding them. LOL But, yes, I totally understand your frustration. I'm completely intolerant to artificial sweeteners and they're sticking them in EVERYTHING these days!! Did you know they changed the ingredients for Toaster Strudels? They now have sucralose in them!! And, things that aren't even remotely "diet" like BREAD has it in there! (I've found it in cinnamon raisin bread before. WTF???) So yeah. It's super awesome to find something with good old fashioned sugar again that I can enjoy.
