So scattered somewhere between Michael Phelps winning gold and Michael Phelps setting new world records there has been a tropical storm brewing out in the Caribbean Sea. Brad found out about this a few days ago and overnight morphed into a full fledged hurricanologist. Being a Tennessee boy he has never experienced the thrill of anticipating a big storm here in Florida before. Since finding out about Tropical Storm Fay he has been tracking her every 15 minutes it seems just to see where the projected path is and just how strong they think the winds could be when they reach our area. He got extra excited when he heard that she could reach category 1 strength winds by landfall. He has even taken to leaving me voicemails to update me on the storm’s progress. Thanks babe, glad to know you’re on top of things. Apparently the real meteorologists are anticipating Miss Fay’s arrival in the Jacksonville area sometime on Wednesday… this is the storm’s current projections:
…and here is where I’m pretty sure Brad will be until Friday afternoon when Fay checks out of Casa de Florida:
Good thinking babe with the bike helmet… we wouldn’t want anything happening to that cute little noggin of yours.
You know you’re a Floridian if you hear there is a hurricane coming and its anything less than a category 3 you really don’t alter your plans. My FL peeps understand. Brad will be busy buying out all of the bottled water and canned goods at Publix this week, so if you get a hankering for some canned green beans or tuna, stop on by, I’m sure we will have plenty to go around.
