As I mentioned in my pre-Ernesto post, we really didn't have much prep work to do here since our building is well-equipped for storms. Yesterday we took the screens off our windows and brought our veranda furniture inside, and that's about it. We'd stocked up with plenty of groceries the day before and have been doing plenty of cooking, so we would not go hungry. Not that that's ever a problem around here anyway!
The pictures below are from yesterday as Ernesto approached.
The photo on the left was taken when I first got up; the one on the right two hours later after the heavy rain began.
