Tropical Storm Fay

Tropical storm Fay arrived yesterday as expected. She was supposed to move on into the Atlantic, maybe gathering strength and then make landfall again further north. Well, she has decided she likes it here. She is making like a turtle and crawling, and so we continue to get wind and rain. The wind hasn't been bad--a decent thunderstorm often gives us more wind.

Mike has been off work, yesterday and today. I wish today that more people were staying home. There have been cars, trucks, etc, going down our street today. The road is flooded, so I personally wouldn't want to drive through it. It doesn't pass the rule of not driving on a road you can't see.

We have a good bit of water out there, but not any worse than it was with Jeanne. We are more than ready for Fay to move out though. The news report just said she is only moving at 3 miles per hour now. Oh well.

We got a little video camera, called a Flip camera. It really works quite well and Mike has been having a lot of fun with it. He has put together a little video of Fay for you all. Here it is:

This is so GREAT!!!!!! Mike did an excellent job! Glad you seem to have so little debris damage to plants. Lots of rain though, wish you could send us some.
