Yet another Hurricane...

Hurricane Rita - Wow! Mother Nature must really be in a mood... I know just how she feels!

Satellite Imagery from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's website.

Rita is the 17th named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season, making this the fourth-busiest season since record-keeping started in 1851.

My Step-son lives in Ft. Lauderdale and I sent him an email to check on him. I just had to share his response with you (he cracks me up). They were lucky this time, it passed them by. I hope he doesn't mind my sharing!

Hey there!

I just woke up, thought I heard some noise overnight and I haven't been watching the news.

I actually drove to Miami International Airport last night to pick up a package and I thought "wow, I picked a good night and a good time, there's nobody here."
I did think the winds were a bit gusty, but that's normal around here sometimes. I just whizzed to the airport and back and there was no traffic, no parking problems, no crowds of people. I never had a trip to MIA so good...I just forgot to notice that there were also NO PLANES. They had already moved all the airplanes to other airports and there were none waiting on the tarmac, none lined up in the sky...I can be just clueless sometimes, but hey you do know I am a blonde, right?

So when I listened to my voicemail this morning, it was a friend from Miami and she said "Oh another hurricane...well, at least it's not as bad as last time."

To which I said to myself: "What HURRICANE?"

I need to get out of bed more often.

I am fine, just wonder where the two plastic Adirondack chairs that were sitting on my front porch are.
