After hurricane Jeanne visited Florida, I told my wife that if we had another hurricane I was moving to North Dakota. She told me I wouldn’t like the winters and that my job required living in Florida. Someone sent me this revised map. YES! I have found a way to do both! How do we get this new geography approved?
Hurricane Jeanne is over
Hurricane Jeanne is over. We’ve survived another one. Our house held up well. We had some shingles flopping around, but no damage and no leaks. We had winds of 50-70 miles per hour. Kay measured about 7 inches of rainfall in our rain gauge.
How does a rain gauge measure rain flying horizontally? If we measured 7 inches of vertical rain, I wonder how many inches we got of horizontal rain?
Newsmen reported that the farmers almanac predicted 5 hurricanes for Florida this season. They are saying we may have one more. I sure hope that Ivan counts twice, since it passed over Florida twice in its amazing journey.
Storm passing by
We made it through the hurricane during the night. Fortunately, the winds were barely hurricane force. Yea, “barely” means they are still 75 miles per hour! But the roaring is decreasing. The storm is heading towards Tampa. Look out, Tampa!
