Will I Get a Snow Day This Week?

Thanks to Tropical Storm Fay, my trip to Orlando for a conference was canceled today. Understandable. But rather than seeing the Blue Man Group tomorrow night, I'll be hoping my blue tarp doesn't have to be used. (Not sure why I purchased a tarp during my trip to Wal-Mart this afternoon; since I was picking up water, a flashlight and crackers, thought I may as well throw a tarp in with my provisions.)

TS Fay is anticipated to become a hurricane when it makes landfall (right now, landfall is anticipated for Tuesday afternoon).

The work plan is to go into the office tomorrow (I'll be bringing my cat to work - this'll be fun) then spend the duration of the storm at a friend's house until the worst of it is over.

The photo is a view from my lanai. You can see some clouds but I'm sure tomorrow will be gray, rainy and windy. Stay tuned.

so, you stocked up on water, flashlights, and batteries? i remember that my shopping list for storms of any kind (tropical/snow) always included bourbon, water, cigarettes, toilet paper, white bread, yellow mustard, spam, and vienna sausages! i'm not sure who's the heathen here! barb

I already have wine, Capt. Morgan and tequila so didn't need any of that :) Did get today off, the storm rolled in this morning south of us. It's pretty darn windy out!

Now it's my turn...Typhoon Nuri is heading my way. And people still have their clothes hanging on the balconies.
