Tropical Storm Fay

As you might already know by watching the Weather Channel, there is a tropical story Fay that is working its way to Florida. I know there is a lot of concern from family and friends out of state for the wellbeing of our family in the even that this storm should hit us. I just want you all to know that we are ready and waiting. Its fortunate that we live with my parents as their house has storm panels that can easily be put up should the storm increase to a hurricane status and my dad filled up his gas cans with gasoline should we need to use the generator. All the vehicles have full tanks of gas, we have PLENTY of bottled water (a plus to my mom working for Culligan which is a bottled water supplier), we have loads of can goods, emergency kits, the works. We have to chuckle a little since as we are all secretly hoping this storm will grant us a free day off of work, but without causing any serious damage of course. Since these storms can strengthen or weaken and turn outside of the projected path, we are all just sitting and waiting, living life normally until further notice. So until we have more information on what might happen, just know we are taking all precautions possible and are prepared. We are Floridians, we are used to this stuff now! LOL!

Of course you know that we one a couple of the family members that worry about you guys when storms are coming through. And I worry about Sara when storms hit her area. Then there is us in earthquake area. But we have not had one of those for awhile now. The worst I felt was Sept. 2000.
