The storm blew through the Florida Panhandle with little effect. And we spent the day running errands in preparation for power loss, which never happened. We also did some boat shopping. Well it was more of an exploratory mission, since we have no plans to buy a boat until next year. After running around town for a bit we headed to the beach to check out the water and it was awesome!
Obviously not a beach day when the waves are taking over the steps...
All in all we got off easy. My parents have no power or phone service and can't really get too far out of their neighborhood due to flood water. They're hoping to get power back by the end of the weekend. My grandparent's are pretty much in the same situation, however with a generator, but they will probably be without power for at least a week.
Trust me, living in South Louisiana without power in early September is pretty much miserable. I'm just hoping that the water stops rising and starts receding soon, since the flooding is pretty bad right now.
Hopefully next week I'll have some other stuff to blog about instead of weather... :)
