Fay At Bay

Okay, this town needs to seriously step away from the Doppler Radar.

Despite tales of doom and woe from every media outlet in the state: Fay was a bust. And when I say that, it is not to say that I invite natural disasters, it's just then when you shut down all business, school, hospitals, and commerce (except for Home Depot and Zephyrhills water) then make sure there is one coming.

Not only didn't we get hit, we didn't even get the feeder bands. Not a drop of rain nor a gust of wind. Mobile homes perched on windmills didn't budge. It was the biggest non-event since The Sopranos Series Finale. That one blew so much more than Fay...

And again, I don't wish it to be more destructive, I just wish someone could either accurately predict the weather, or just admit that you can't predict the weather.

I'm off to fish all of the patio furniture out of the pool now.

I am just glad you are okay. I was thinking about you when it hit. Well I mean when it started raining in SOME places.

Good news! The National Weather Service is unveling a new fool-proof storm tracker in time for the next storm...
