The Fayte that awaits us
Hey yall! As I sit here typing this, Brian is making us breakfast, and I can hear the wind gusting outside the window. It's an overcast day and the heavy rains are on their way. Yes, we are ready and waiting for Tropical Storm Fay- my first ever Tropical Storm experience. I saw on TWC this morning where Jim Cantore was at Panama City Beach, where so far the beaches were still relatively calm. Apparently there were even sandbags at a local park for residents to go and pick up to prepare for Fay. Admittedly I was kind of excited at the looming storm ahead, even though since we don't live right on the water, we have no need for the sandbags.
I'm not sure what to expect from this storm, but I have my raincoat and video camera ready, to bring my own weather channel fantasies to life. We'll see what kind of a camera man Brian makes! So far the three of us are safe and sound in our little house and don't plan on getting out in the torrential rains (don't worry Mom!). This is Amanda Vilendrer, Tropical Storm aficionado, signing off!
