I am waiting to decide whether or not to bring in the patio furniture. Since I'll be here, I'll just watch it and if it starts blowing around, I'll run out and move it. The winds aren't predicted to be that high so I think we'll be pretty OK here in Orlando.
Poor Toby hates these storms. He gets so bored because he can't go on any long walks. He's so cute. He walks out of the house all excited, then he realizes it's nasty out, and he wants to run back inside.
Tomorrow we'll be watching Jim Cantore on the Weather Channel, we've watched him through so many hurricanes + storms in the past, he feels like a member of the family. A hurricane wouldn't be a hurricane without Jim Cantore.
Some phrases we are sure to hear over and over again in the next 20+ hours: feeder bands, storm surge, hunker down, cone of probability, conditions are deteriorating rapidly.....
got to get you Jimmy Buffet's short stories - as I remember there is at least one hurricane story in those, plus they are hilarious!
as is your description of Toby's feelings about storms!
we'll be watching Jim Cantore with you! hope Paul gets back and forth to work OK - sounds like good weather for drinking! keep us posted - on the storm not the drinking!
yeah right now it's not raining. I got to take toby out and he waas very happy!
Looks like ernesto is turning into a non-storm like Floyd did. But I hear he's going to pick up tonight. we'll see!
