The good part of living in Miami? The weather! The bad part of living in Miami? The weather. Yeah, we might have sunshiny days when the rest of the US is shivering cold, but right around this time of year I inevitably wind up asking myself, what the heck are we doing in South Florida, where hurricanes are just a part of our lives?
The latest threat is Fay, who apparently is a killer.
Over the weekend, I filled my tank with gas and bought a carload of hurricane supplies, and we’re well prepared with charcoal and propane tanks for the camping stove. What I’ve never had to deal with before is this here blog. So I just wanted to give you all a head’s up — during Hurricane Wilma, I lost power for a full week. AND because I work for a newspaper and the news don’t stop, we had to work from our office in a gasoline powered trailer in the parking lot. So if this thing hits and I disappear for a few days, you know what’s up — I’m dealing with weather drama. And I’ll be back as soon as I can.
Fingers crossed that Fay doesn’t do too much damage, wherever she hits.
