Tropical Storm Hanna is supposed to make an appearance this weekend. Not much is expected, just storminess ... rain and wind. And it is supposed to pass rather quickly because Sunday is supposed to be a lovely day. This morning started out quite sunny and nice, but the clouds are thickening up now and I expect the rain will start by the time the girls get off the bus.
The last time we had a hurrican threat was 2003, with Isabel. We didn't have any damage, just a power outage that lasted several days and lots of debris everywhere. The kids missed a whole week of school, though, and ended up having extended days for the second semester of school.
We have a generator now, so even if the power goes out, I'm not too worried. Our generator runs everything in our kitchen, family room, and master bedroom/bath. So if we lose power, we won't be suffering too much, except for a lack of air conditioning!
Hanna is not the last show of the season though; I'm worried for those in the path of Ike next week.
