Fay Shmay & some Bloggy Love

Tropical Storm Fay

So they say we've got a Tropical Storm upon us... and yeah, I guess it's windy out there. And rainy. Definitely rainy. And the TV keeps getting interrupted with that nasty tornado warning and flash flood warning junk that makes us unable to hear what Oprah is saying.

School's are closed, dentist offices are closed, government buildings are closed.

I'm a little irritated.

Yesterday was our first day of school and I drove in a torrential downpour to pick up my kids. Faculty and students stood outside with lighting rods umbrellas in hand waiting for minivans and SUVs driven by worried moms to come rescue them from the hell they were enduring. We all drove around in the mess, business as usual, going slower and trying to be more considerate of each other, everyone wanting to get home to hunker down for the storm.

The storm they tell me is upon us now.

Sure, we've had some power surges and the trees are blowing around a bit out there... but compared to yesterday it looks like a nice day for a leisurely drive.

On a brighter note, I won a blog award! Every Day Baby Steps gave me a supah sweet award!

Glad to hear that the weather didn't turn out to be too bad, although that totally stinks that school is closed on the SECOND day! What kind of justice is that?!?

Actually it's lovely here today, they've drained the tunnel and the braver drivers are using it again.

And thank you for the love.
