Ivan showing himself here
We are getting the rain from mean old hurricane Ivan today and it's a doozy. I realize that it's nothing compared to those actually hit by the hurricane but it's still unnerving. Several schools here were closed today in anticipation, but not dd's. She has probably spent most of her school day sitting in the hall in the tornado position. Today was the first time I've ever heard the tornado sirens actually go off and it's scary. There were several tornados that touched down nearby but none actually in my little town or in the town that dd is in school. I'm not sure of the damage done yet, at my office it's only a few tree limbs down. But man the rain has been unreal. Our area is just full of creeks and rivers and they are calling for flash flooding if the rain keeps up. Mel took dd to school and will be picking her up today. I'm just a chicken and don't won't to drive in this mess any more than is necessary to get me home. Besides I take and pick her up 4 days a week, he should do it 1 day (especially since he's off on Fridays).
Okay I've complained enough. I'm still thinking of all the villagers that have suffered thru these recent hurricanes and sending prayers and hugs your way.
