'Tis the Season

Sometimes we forget how freakin' huge Tropical Storms are. It's rainy here and was kind of rainy a bit yesterday.

I've not been well today, laid up in bed or on the couch, trying to get my bearings back and get into work. I'm working seven days now.

I finally made my way to the kitchen to pack my lunch eat at work, when my husband said after he'd come home from church with the boys, 'All this rain is from Tropical Storm Debbie..."

Me: No way. It's hitting Louisiana

Hunhead: Bou, it's a stinkin' HUGE storm...

Me: Please. You know how far away that State is from us? I just did that bus drive. 15 hours. It's a long dang way...

Hunhead: I'm telling you...

Holy crap. Crazy. I forget how big these suckers get... and I should have realized it, because when I woke up I thought, 'Dang, it feels all tropical stormy today...'

On the bright side - my yard will be green for at least a week after this!

They are big and slow. They dump a lot of water and stay around for days. We are drowning up here in North Florida. My house is an island right now and the place I work is flooded. It's hard to get anywhere because every other road is closed due to flooding. And, it's not over yet.

Palm Beach County is nowhere near the storm, but radar shows we're gonna get more rain from outer bands of the storm in a few hours. Yep, those suckers are BIG. Good luck Sticks.
