It was a piece of cake

No big deal in Iceni, where Boudicca resides. It was a rainy day with light winds while Katrina passed south. The power is out in southern Palm Beach County and in Boca, which accounts for the server being down.

Meanwhile, up in the Panhandle, we're staring gape-mouthed at the tracks predicted by the latest computer models. Here we go again. Recovering from these major storms over and over again is a Herculean task akin to cleaning the Aegean Stables. Gotta go find my boots and shovel.

See, if Bou had a generator we wouldn't get the pleasure of your posting TGOO. *grin*

I'm liking the weather pixie with her little umbrella too... although it sounds like an umbrella could handle the weather they're getting now.

I'll be praying that the storm turns... it does have to hit somewhere, but at least it could give someone else a turn!

Why, thank you, Teresa. I really don't mind taking time out from my busy schedule to report on the goings and comings of the RBofN and their parents. It's like reporting on a soap opera.

Indeed, once Katrina enters the Gulf, as Boudicca says, "it's like fishing in a bucket". She's going up someone's kilt, and given a choice, I'd prefer she goose some distant neighbor.

Amazing the trouble such a minimal storm can cause. It knocked out power to about a million people in Dade-Broward. Glad it wasn't a "real" storm.
I hope the storm commits suicide, it seems like there's no good place for it to go.

My thoughts and prayers are with Bou and the crew!

We have been getting wind bands with a little rain off of it all day all the way up here in Citrus county. The last report I saw on the Tampa station is that the panhandle may well see it come in as a cat 4--if it does decide to turn and come in on us as a cat 3. Well, all the bathtubs are filled and sweetthing has stocked up on canned goods and potatoes. Batten her down boys
