Boy, what a strange storm we have been having here. I was lucky enough to miss most of it. I was supposed to fly back from Boston 8/12, but after getting a Delta advisory Monday that said I could change no charge to avoid the storm, I came home last night. It was a bit of a bumpy last 30 minutes! We even had to detour and go around St. Petersburg then into Orlando. The ride home to Thurston House was even worse, with power outages, heavy rain & wind, tree branches down….. Well, this crazy storm seems to really be leaving us now. We have been experiencing the outer parts of it since yesterday, but the rain finally stopped and I think the sun wants to peak out. Joe & I know what we will be doing tomorrow, picking up the multitudes of branches and leaves that are everywhere! We are safe & sound though so that’s what counts.
