I’m busy getting things prepared just in case Hurricane Irene decides to drop by. Projections are we should see the first big rain sometime Saturday. It’s too early to project much beyond that.
Today I spent updating the ham radio operators who may be called upon to provide communications. Tomorrow night I’ve got a meeting and need to chat with the city’s Emergency Services representative about potential assignments. No promises for a blog tomorrow. And naturally come the weekend if we lose power the internet will be down, even if I do run the generator.
And to top it all off, you probably saw that we had a 5.8 earthquake earlier today. It was more surprising than damaging. It was the kids’ first earthquake experience; after they figured out what it was, they decided they were impressed.
And yesterday I thought a turtle infestation was dramatic!
