Okay, so I know it's not PC to be excited about a storm like Hurricane Frances, but I reckon since I'm stuck with it anyway, I may as well make the most out of it, hey? We are just now getting the first feeler bands from the storm...the wind is gusting HARD, blowing the rain in almost horizontal sheets. It's so cool! I'm sure I wouldn't be saying that if I were on the other coast, but we aren't going to see the worst of it on the west coast of Florida and I gotta admit...there's something very exhilarating about watching the force of nature. I sure hope I don't lose my screen porch though!
