Fay, I’m Over You Already!

Blogged under Yada, Yada, Yada by Tammy on Wednesday 20 August 2008 at 8:46 am

For the most part, we are almost done with Fay in my neck of the woods, but as you can see from the radar picture above (compliments of the Weather Channel), she is not done with Florida yet. We’ve gotten over 10 inches of rain at our house, and though there is no standing water in our yard or the street outside, from what I’m hearing other areas are flooded out. The college is closed until noon today, so I’m vacillating about going in. I can do a good chunk of work from home, so I don’t really need to go in today, but then again, I’m sure there is no line at the copy center so I could get a lot of handouts copied in time for school next week. Hmmmmm…..

I thought I’d manage to get some crafting done yesterday, but somehow the day sort of got away from me in between checking the weather and local news every five minutes! I have some metal clay stars dried now and ready for firing, but it is still drizzling outside (been raining for over 24 hours now), so I’m not too keen on setting my little hot pot out there just yet.

At this point, it looks like those north of me in Florida will now be getting lots of Fay coming their way. This really hasn’t been a bad storm, but it’s just been slow and never ending! I’m so over the rain and the wind I can’t even explain it!

    Hello, Tammy! I’ve been keeping an eye on FL and glad you and the family are fine. Nature can be a scary thing! We had severe weather here in Chicago a couple weeks ago with the tornado sirens going off, for the first time in downtown, Chicago and we actually took shelter in a bathroom for 1/2 an hour. That was a first. I’ll be heading to Florida in October for some R & R, hopefully things will have calmed down for the season by then. Good Luck!!!!!

    It has started to dry up here a little, and we actually saw a little of the sun today. I will say, too, that you can already see the vegetation getting greener for all the water. We have had a bad spell down here for the longest time. That sounds scary, torandos in downtown. You just don’t expect that.
