Fay Fay, Go AWAY!!!!

The heavy rains have stopped, but we are still having intermittent showers. It was clear enough yesterday to clean up the debris in the yard.

Gary and Pete removed the night blooming jasmine that collapsed and fell into the pool. Ben said it was depressed and drowned in it's sorrow! The planter that it was in was super-soaked, and it just floated right out. The poor plant was dangling by it's roots.

Today, we went to WalMart ( WOW!!!) for our first trip through town. The groceries were getting low, and the boys wanted to get the rest of the school supplies their teachers requested last Monday. Some roads were still flooded, and there were big puddles and debris all over. Everyone says "what's so bad about a tropical storm? It's not as bad as a hurricane!"...well, people be warned---tropical storms can do almost as much damage. I just heard on the news that there are still 3500 people in our town without power.
