It's now Sunday morning and we here on the west coast of FL had a few gusts last night but are just getting another feeder band of storms. Heard the weather guy on the radio say that they are pretty nasty. Up till now we have had intermittent rain - very intermittent. Marsha and Ann, my prayers are with you - Frances is no hurri - cane. Our school sits in a low area, and my classroom often has water up to the door after a simple heavy rain. I'm concerned about stuff up there. We'll just see. Again, there's no prediciting these things.
There is a feeder band of heavy squalls just east of here (Tampa), but the pacing of this storm is exceedingly slow and therefore, unpredictable. My husband, a pastor, is heading up to church right now. I'm planning to go up for services which will be in 1 1/2 hrs. There is a band of heavy squalls headed here soon. I'll let you know if anybody shows at church. It's all in God's hands. I won't do anything stupid, tho.
Updating you from west FL,

Stay Safe from Woody, Retired in Albuquerque
Yes, I'm still here. We are getting the first bands in Orlando now. This hurricane covers the size of the FL peninsula so there is no getting away from it. We have a generator this time so we can keep food for a few days. Woody, your coaxing sounds good right now! Miles of beach, hmmmmm!
I will stay in touch and report in as long as we have internet. They say we will get our part tomorrow as the storm is moving at a slow 5 mi. an hour. That is not good news. There is too much time for it to dump LOTS of water on us. Charlie moved out in 12 hours. Does this peninsula float???
Keep praying that it goes out to sea.
Still calm Marsha. ---
