We're still experiencing tropical storm Fay. Apparantly, it was stationary for over 6 hours last night, which makes me think that some evil super scientist has found some way to keep the storm from moving. Why would someone do that? Maybe they wanted beach front property.

There was a lot of rain that battered the roof and was so loud that it woke me up. I didn't have a very restful sleep last night and I don't think I'll have a quiet one tonight.

Several counties are flooded, schools are cancelled, and stupid people have gone out into the ocean and are surprised when they're swept out by heavy currents.

We're fine though. It's just been non-stop rain since last night and it'll continue to rain tomorrow as well. On the news, it said 100% of rain, which I've never seen before, but I thought it was funny. There wasn't any 99%. They are totally sure that it's going to rain all day.

And what do you guys think of the new Project Runway cast? I'm finding them a little lacking. I think the last year had the most talent. I don't see anyone as a standout and I can't even say there's one designer in particular that I love. They're not wowing me. What do you guys think?

The wind and rain has died down since last night. There wasn't anything except some banging that came from one of the trees by the house. It woke me up a couple of times during the night, but it wasn't anything that kept me awake the whole night.

The tropical storm is currently off the coast and will most likely gain strength. They're thinking that it'll hit land again, but it should swing up towards Jacksonville, so we won't be in the eye at all. We'll most likely get more rain and wind. It may or may not turn into a hurricane. It's hard to tell. I can see why people get complacent with tropical storms. There are so many that come through here without becoming a full blown hurricane that they don't really get to the store until it's too late and there aren't any more supplies left at the store.

The wedding plans are all set. The only thing that needs to be done is the Saturday before the wedding. We had planed on having things to do for the out of town guests. The problem we're running into is finding places to eat. We've got about 24 people between the family, bridal party and their guests. Unfortunately, the places that we've talked to all want us to set a menu and do the whole contract thing. We just want to be able to eat somewhere and have people choose what they want. The two places that we'd spoken to before suddenly want us to do that at $30-50 a person. So we're a little bit at a loss as to where to take people for lunch. I wanted to take them to places where they can't go elsewhere, but it doesn't seem like it's going to happen now. We'll probably end up at a chain that you could go anywhere. So we're still searching. Anybody have any suggestions?

We just came back from the grocery store in time to avoid severe thunderstorm that came through, bending out poor sapling outside to nearly 60 degrees. Luckily it's a bendy sapling and I think it survived the beating.

I don't know if you guys have been watching last comic standing this season. I've been watching it and thinking that it's not really a competition. It's a scam. I know that humor is subjective and one person's humor may not be someone else's. I know that I find potty humor hilarious, but Chris doesn't. But I feel like they're totally passing people who aren't even that funny.

They're passing people whom I've seen in one form or another. And maybe I remember them from last year. But those guys thatg go on don't even feel like they're giving their best. I almost feel like it's predetermined who will go on. I remember that there was a scandal when Drew Carey and Brett Butler were judges because the producers were the one's who told them who to pass along rather than who they thought was funny. And I think that totally taints the feel of the show for me. It's really sad.

Several days ago, hominysnark and I were discussing how in Florida you only have two sets of clothes: the set you wear in Florida and the set for visiting other states. Today, I have to take that back. It's 40 degrees, but with the windchill, it feels like 30! I had to bust out all my California winter clothes. I geared up in long-sleeved shirt, t-shirt, fleece, and wind-proof jacket just to go to the mailbox down the block. It's nice to know that the layering system works. The only things that were cold were my face, hands and feet. Oh yes, my feet. I'd decided to forgo wearing socks and sneakers and just tromp out in my sandals. My toes were so cold when I came back. But the crisp air was refreshing. It made it feel like it was really winter and reminded me a bit of California.
