TS Fay update--mighty rainy here...

Well, Fay is still a tropical storm--for the moment--though now she's in the Florida Straits and might become a hurricane sometime today (a Cat. 1--not so fun, but it could be so very much worse).  The latest advisory shifted the path (again) slightly west, so we're out of the TS Warning area, but not out of the rain, so it's going to wet for today and tonight.  Not sure if we'll get the winds--and, who knows what the 2pm advisory will bring?  The storms turn on a dime, and do what they bloody well want to, no matter how the predictions go.  *shrug*  I drove to work this morning in a driving rain, and that's likely on and off all day--the so-called "feeder bands" that travel far ahead of the eye of the storm.  That little symbol on the map is deceiving--it's a convenience, easier to portray the tracks and show the eye--and is like the tip of the iceberg.  The eye may make landfall on the west coast, but the clouds/rain/winds can cover the rest of the lower half of Florida.  I really really don't want a repeat of the 2004 season.  I'm going to try putting in a pic, it's our front yard right after Hurricane Frances (which was the Unwelcome Houseguest That Wouldn't Leave: 30 hours to go through!  Argh!):

Hey, it worked!  :-)

I think the thing that bugs me most about the whole will it-or won't it tropical storm thing is I had to re-schedule my long overdue and highly anticipated hair appt. for tomorrow morning...bah...
