I'm going to fill up the tanks of the cars just in case but as I hoped its just a tropical storm that will give us lots of rain over a short period of time and maybe knock down a power line or two but I haven't noticed anyone boarding up there windows.

The storm has been suspicisuially changing directions over the last three or four days and every path NOAA putt's up crosses over me Like I'm some lucky pivot...

I gonna climb up on the roof and look for a large bull's-eye.

It stalled out over us for a while, it's mostly gentle rain. We got a little hard rain and a very little wind.

The last time I requested a storm to leave me alone was Katrina and a few hours later it changed direction and headed west to New Orleon's...

We got a couple days of nice steady rain although the people in the East of Tallahassee might disagree. I'm curious how often those areas flood in general and personally I'd have been hesitant to build this house in any low areas reguardless of what the fifty year plan says.

It's really a fine line between getting rain we need and rain we don't when they hang around and move so slowly.

I used the rain by the way LOL.

The area rug under my desk needed a good wash so I cleaned off a sloped section of my driveway, layed it out and let it get rained of for a day then when the eye was over me and the heavier rain was soon to come I flipped it over and poured a cup of soap over the backing with more at the top and let it sit out the storm and get a good wash and the driveway is sloped enough to let the dirt and sand embedded in it just wash out. There's an ink stain on it but otherwise it looks as good as if I used the steam cleaner and I have about 15 minutes of my own time in it Hahahahhah.

Silver linings...

Blue skies to you! It's always so nice and clear the day after the storm passes.

Ooooh, lucky you, and how clever. Wish I had a driveway that tilted :) I just have a house (and a barn) that sits partway down a hill, so the side facing up the hill collects water and floods. The "exterior carpeting" on the enclosed porch and the carpet remnants we use for doormats end up soaked. One of these days we're going to put in drains that route water around the buildings, and when WE eventually build a place, we'll make sure there's GOOD drainage.
