    During a quiet spell between rain storms I sprayed all my orchids with a fungicide in preparation for Hurricane Isaac. I also put all my tall orchids back against the house where the wind won't knock them over.

    Okay...the plants are in "storm formation". I have a few more things to tie down, bring in, re-arrange; but the largest portion is done. Now we wait...

    People first, then orchids - remember! (Pets may get priority over orchids).

    PLEASE LET US KNOW HOW IT GOES!

    Looks like we're getting just rain here.

    Dear friends, thank you so much for all best wishes. We expect strong winds with gusts 50 m\h so I am going to bring my most precious plants inside. We have a lot work to do, clean patio and backyard, remove\secure furniture and other stuff we have outside. Praying for you and wishing all the best to everyone who lives in the path of TS\hurricane.

    We have bands of heavy rain sweeping through South Florida but almost no wind so far. In-between rain bands it's just overcast and quiet. The storm looks very disorganized on the satellite images.
