The Eye of the Storm
Fay woke me up about an hour ago so I came out to watch the weather channel. I always feel better during a hurricane if I can watch it on radar while it is happening. Usually the power is out by now in a bigger hurricane. The eye is just about overhead right now. The winds seem to have shifted direction already, although it's hard to tell in the dark. They are talking now about her not even going all the way out over water but just skimming along the coast to the north before heading back in again. I just hope she goes far enough to the north that the rain will let up for a while. The south side of a hurricane isn't usually the worst side, but there still seems to be a lot of rain down there. Maybe she will start moving a little faster so that we can have school tomorrow. I'm not sure how many hurricane days are in the schedule, but I'm sure it's not more than three, and it's still pretty early in the season.
