Update: remember the Harsh Marsh pics in this post? Go look, I'll wait. That's what I've got now, and this farookin' storm doesn't even have a name. Not even a "TD" designation. And the water at the base of the condo? About twice what's in that pic. Yee haw!
Update II: the rain has been absolutely pelting my windows for four full days. Enough! This isn't Britain, for the love of marmite! Sheesh!
Yes, that's a High Wind Advisory.
Quack, already! Damn!
It's been here, hanging around (sat loop) for about 4 days, with another 7 forcasted. I'd rather have a hurricane that would just blow through here and be done with us. Not since that blackguard, Jerry, a few years back, have we had such a sit-n-spin system tormenting North Florida. Argghh!
The poor Pepper Dog is desconsolate as she sits in the downstairs foyer with her nose to the wall. "The lightning can't hurt me if I actively ignore it!" she thinks. Neuroses of several kinds are populating her doggie brain, poor dear.
Five more inches of rain today, and more tomorrow. Blast it all!
But other than the rain, the heat, bugs, gators, and Yankee transplants, it's a veritable paradise.
9/20: Soggy Zombies!! Blue skies this morning! Folks are emerging from their condos and surveying their surroundings as if they fell to earth. They squint at the brightness--it burns! They feel around for the door handle of their cars... they drive off to other, more zombie-friendly venues. Like work.
