Fay Who? Day Two!

By
Mortgage and Lending with Bank of England Mortgage 385907

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!

We're hoping you don't have any significant damage in Florida, but would love some of the rain if conditions become right for it.

We're hoping you do not get any major damage in Florida, but our area could really benefit from some rain that might be a spinoff of the Tropical Storm.

You'd better do a post in the AM to let us know you're OK....

You were saying the weather guy looked geeky....do you remember the geeky weather guy that broadcasted from the top of Mt. Washington? I think he was on Channel 6 out of Maine-I don't remember his name (it might have been Al something) but he had a horrilble squeeky nazal voice. They now have an answering machine recording with his voice...can you imagine! LOL

Jay, To me it's just a big (very big) storm.  The girl on our local weather just reported 25 mph gusts somewhere.... for crying out loud, how desparate can they be?  Stay dry and have a good day.

Jay,

no free standing water in the yard, no debris in the yard, no loss of power.

we have mid afternoon thunder bumpers which create more problems.

Bob,

maybe i should start naming our mid afternoon thunderstorms.

Jay,

We were very lucky here in Cape Coral, no doubt but the storm is wreaking havoc on other Florida cities. Did you see Brevard county is almost all flooded? Very sad. I'm glad we were ok though.

Jay - I hope everything and everyone in your area came through the storm ok.  Here's to hoping it's the only storm to hit Florida this year
