Tropical Storm Fay

Well we have survived the first tropical storm to hit our area this year. Fay never became a hurricane. She sure is slow moving though. We have had steady rain all day long and some varying winds, but nothing too bad. The day has seems just like a bad thunderstorm, but without the thunder and lightening. I'm not complaining because: #1 it's not a hurricane, #2 we need the rain and #3 we need the rain. Yeah I know, I said that twice, but we still need the rain. Fay was hovering over Lake Okeechobee this afternoon dumping much needed rain there. Thanks to everyone who expressed concern for us, I'm so thankful this turned out to basically be nothing. Hopefully we will stay that lucky for the rest of the hurricane season. Now I'm gonna go ride my "bike".

Hey Girl
I just sent you an e-mail let me know if you didn't get it because comcast is acting wonky on my end:))
I am so glad that severe weather didn't come near your house and yes we need rain here too so I am hoping that if we get the outer bands of the storm its just rain not tornados.

Thats the problem with Hurricanes ya get all that time seeing em coming, then enduring them---out here its YOW-W!! that was a good one, (earthquake) no advanced warning , no time to tense up and worry about it---anyway glad it all cool yourway.

We badly need some rain too. I think it's only rained maybe twice since the spring.

Glad you guys are okay ... I lived in Florida all those years and can't ever remember experiencing a hurricane. Mike said we did ... I just don't remember.
