Preparing for Frances

Today has just been one long wait as our impending doom, Hurricane Frances, is still way off the coast of Florida. Tiburon decided to go ahead and close the studio today, so I didn’t have to go into work. I had already told them I was going to be taking today off, so I will end up getting my vacation day back. It turns out Frances has decided to stall over the Bahamas. At last report it is only moving four miles per hour. The current projection takes is just south of Orlando. Unfortunately it will be over us for a full 24 hours. They are predicting that we will start feeling the effects at 8:00 p.m. tomorrow and it won’t be over until 8:00 p.m. Sunday. I will write another entry tomorrow night and report what is happing. If we still have power and an Internet connection, I will get the entry posted.

Since we had a lot of waiting to do and it was a beautiful day out today, we went to breakfast at the Peach Valley Cafe. This is starting to become a regular weekend event. Afterwards, we drove to the YMCA and went swimming. We are now not allowing Abby to have her float vest and she doesn’t like it one bit. However, she is starting to get a little more comfortable with the water. Hopefully over the next few months she will forget the vest and we can start really teaching her to swim.

This evening I went ahead and taped the windows upstairs. There’s a tree right outside those windows and we are affraid that the strong winds might make one of the branches break the windows. Right after Charlie, we had someone come out and give us a quote on getting that tree trimmed, but we told them to take their time and help people who needed to clean up after the last hurricane. Little did we know that another hurricane would be right behind Charlie and we should have told them to go ahead and trim it.
