What was it … 2-3 weeks ago that we found ourselves bunkered in and now we find ourselves suffering from a very similar “impending doom”. True, this one is ALREADY a category 4 … and it looks to be about the same size of the entire state.
So … what are we doing … well, once again the office is ‘closing’ to allow for everyone to take the required precautions. We will head out tonight or tomorrow and grab some more food and tape … then we will watch the forecast, play crib, share foot massages, and generally enjoy the day (true … I do have to take the laptop home and do work … but hey … I am at home). Too bad for Krishen who is trying to get out of town this weekend before the storm hits.
Now … fear? … I am a little more relaxed about this one. First, this is coming in off the East (other) coast so I am expecting a turn north before the heavy winds get to the West coast of Florida. Second, if it does cross it likely will be loosing strength and be down to a cat 2 or less by the time it reaches Sarasota. But … that is no reason to be not concerned, I am just not feeling the bulls-eye pressure of last time. We just have to remember that the areas pegged for damage got “nothing” while those on the outskirts got more than a ‘glancing blow’.
WOW … all this excitement as my wife “comes of age”. Happy 25th Melissa! Guess this now means its time to grow up (Pissst! Don’t take your example from me). So … dinner and dessert tonight (if she is feeling cool – preggers and all), last night I took her out to see the Canada 5 – Slovakia 1 game … what more could a girl want?
