Calm Before the Storm

It's a beautiful night as we wait for the arrival of tropical storm Fay. You wouldn't know there was a storm bearing down on us without the TV, radio or internet, it really is very calm. I put all the lawn furniture in the garage and got the potted plants ready to put in the garage - I don't want them flying around in the wind. The stores were crowded Sunday and Monday with people preparing for the storm or maybe for the first day of school. Perhaps a little of both. We're getting off easy this time, according to a local meteorologist:

"People will know there's a storm there," said Terry. "Winds will pick up as Fay moves through an area. People will feel it."

I, for one, am glad to hear it.

Here are some tips on surviving a hurricane.
