Tropical Storm and NEW blogger

Left home this morning to go visit Doc Lovely's staff. Dire predictions were afoot about the weather, but I felt I HAD to go before surgery and was glad I did, he always is into a ton of research and I got a few tips which I clutched to my chest on how to heal more quickly.

But, yes, there was a bad storm. The traffic lights were out at the first intersection after I left the house, so I turned and took the shortcut to Mobile. The causeway over the bay was flooded so I made sure I drove the bayway. Lots of rain, lots of wind, and tornado watches afoot. Still, I was only ten minutes late and endured 3 hours of a certain blood test, got instructions from his end on how to get through surgery and heal faster, so that's out of the way.

I'm thinking - let's see, two more months - September and October to endure "Hurricane Season." Ok, its an annual thing, why worry.

Speaking of a parallel hurricane: Elections!

Obama picked his running mate - Joe Biden - I never could get by Biden's smile which is still brilliant despite kicking himself as his foot enters his mouth occasionally. He's probably ok, though. The comment on POTUS was that this team will appear less "elite." Obama, an elitist? Oh, come on - they are trying to tell us that McCain is a down home boy? I don't think so. So, the last two months are counting down to election. I will be so very glad when its over...speaking of storms. Why does it always seem like it takes forever to get there?

On my left is Babe's Blog link - a friend who has decided to start blogging - how about hopping over and saying hello?

So, Fay is gone, I see. Was this the storm you were referring to? I saw some terrible flooding pictures around the net, but am glad you got away with what you did.

I'll go check out Babe, too!

It kept coming back around! Hope its gone for good - it was scary seeing that lower bridge flooded.
