Tropical Storm

I've been through tropical storms that left me standing in two feet of water in my apartment (July 1979). I've been through tropical storms that knocked the power out for a day. I've been through tropical storms that generated nasty tornadoes.

So trust me when I say that Edouard is my kind of tropical storm.

We've had light rain for a few hours, no wind, no reports of tornadoes, no evacuations. Nerves on edge yesterday went ahead and slammed the doors of most places of business for today, including my employer.

A perfect day for reading.

  1. When I first moved to NC I was really nervous about the idea of a hurricane. I was downright nervous and sick to my stomach when the first one hit, and luckily for me it was only a cat 2 that dropped a boatload of rain. Sort of reminded me of a northeast TX severe thunderstorm. Also luckily for me (and my sensitive to nervousness stomach) those were the only types of hurricanes I experienced in NC. Whew!
