I'm beginning to wonder when or if you can trust the national media. Early this morning, 7:30 AM to be exact, it seemed if there wasn't a major story, that they would try to make one.
The Weather Channel was cute. They had a reproter with an LL Bean windbreaker on. He had his hoodie on over his hat and tied up tight. You would have thought that he was in the middle of a major storm, but there wasn't any rain, and there wasn't any wind. He kept on talking about the ocean swells, but there weren't any.
He looked Geekie!
Fay's visited the Keys already, no damage to speak of, but we only have mild breezes and no rain, although it's clouding over, so soon.
Tom Petty's right;
The Waiting's the Hardest Part!
Many headlines start with hurricane warnings and then predict winds gusting between 60 and 70 MPH. Sorry that's not hurricane quality. We need a minimum of 74 MPH. Also they are not talking about sustained activity rather gusts.
I may actually sleep through it all as it should hit and/or be at its worst around 2 AM.
I'm going to leave my car out in case the power goes out, as I would not be able to get it out of the garage due to the electric opener. My major concern are flying projectles, that would be anything left lying around now traveling through the air at 40-50 MPH. Also falling or uprooted trees could be a problem. ours look healthy and the grounds not to saturated.
They're kicking the tourists off Sanibel Island, but the natives appear to be staying.
Well it's not a hoax, cause here she comes.
Bring it on!
