All is well here, post Fay!
I ended up working today during the passing of the tropical storm, Fay...my company considered it a normal work day! There was solid rain and a little wind, but not too bad on the roads, which I was grateful for. When I got home, we had power, but one neighbor had lost hers, and it got fixed quickly, so that was wonderful. There were quite a few tornados all around Florida today, and quite a few places were damaged. We were under a tornado warning all day...but luckily I did not run into any myself, while working. Some cities farther north are under water. My heart breaks for them. I need to hear how the folks are on the west side of the state. Looks like it will now get out into the Atlantic and then strengthen to hurricane, and cross back over the top of Florida and then move north. What a zig-zaggy mess. As usual. Well...hopefully we will be fairly back to normal tomorrow. Schools will be back in session, here anyway. I am wondering about my friends in Clearwater, Lakeland, and Ocala...and worried about my friends in Gainesville. Goodness, this is exhausting.
