It’s Soggy Down Here

We have had seven or eight inches of rain in the last 24 hours. We never lost power but the flickering on and off prohibited me from feeling secure about cranking up the computer.

Thank you everyone for your sweet comments and messages. It sure did feel good to read them this morning.

Yesterday seemed like one of the longest days ever. It was dark, windy and raining all day. The sky never seemed to change. So what to do on a day such as that? Yep, crawl up on the bed and sleep to your heart’s content. That’s what I did. Fred on the other hand spent most of the day protesting Mother Nature for not allowing him to have his nap in the sunshine.

Again, thank you for being such sweet friends. It means a lot, to know that there are people who I have never met who are thinking about us on days like yesterday.

just glad you are OK (and Fred will manage....)

that seemed like a slow moving storm -- hopefully the damage was minimal to everyone.

Ah yes - the gift of friendship via blogging is a great one. We are all connected in thought and that is indeed a beautiful thing.

While I am sorry Fred could not go out, I am very glad that it was not a huge storm.

Glad to hear you dodged the bullet and only got a little soggy. Madam and I are back just in time.

Glad things are ok and you managed to sleep to your heart's content. I have a long list of Hurricanes and Tropical Storms that I have slept through, if its just rain and you have a forced day off, what better way to spend it?

My stepdaughter and stepson live in the Tampa/StPete area, they're battening down today.

So good to hear you didn't sustain damage.

Glad that you guys didn't get swept away into the sea, ending up at Guantanamo as an enemy combatant.

Sleeping through it is the best way to make it through a tropical storm. Glad it wasn't a Katrina-level one, and here's hoping we don't get any of those this season or any other.

Glad to hear you made it through the worst of it. Your description of an unchanging gray sky sounds like everyday in the pacific northwest.

Sleeping in is an admirable gesture. Too bad Fred didn't try it with you!

Stay dry guys! My family is in and around Cocoa and they say it is fine but I understand flooding is quite an issue in some areas. Good luck!
