Fay Fay Go Away

Our thoughts today are of course with our many friends in south and central Florida as they struggle with Tropical Storm Fay.

We remember all too well the “hurricane year” of 2004, where our former home got hit by hurricanes three times (Charlie, Frances and Jeanne, though by sheer bad luck we also happened to drive through the more-northern Ivan as well!). We hope Fay is a poor relation to any of those monster storms.

Almost as if in sympathy, we have had a (unusual for this time of year, apparently) couple of gray/rainy days up here with only occasional bits of sunshine. Normally it’s sunny straight through the summer, or so we’re told.

Best wishes for steady electricity during this emergency. Florida in August without power is no fun, take our word for it!
