I saw this brown lizard in the front garden today when I was carrying groceries into the house, getting ready for Hurricane Irma to strike where I live in Central Florida.
Today is Friday. The hurricane is expected tomorrow night.
We cleared all the potted plants off the front porch. Our living room looks like the Botanical Gardens. Our backyard shed and utility room are stuffed. But we’ve cleared all loose items from the yard.
We have friends who live in a manufactured home, a couple and a roommate. And their two dogs. cat, and six kittens. We call to invite them to stay with us and our three dogs.
And we wait.
