I am truly blessed

Yes Bruce and I survived tropical storm Fay. Although she made for a very interesting week! By last Sunday we knew she was on her way but where she would hit exactly was not certain so everyone including Tampa and Clearwater was put on alert. Part of my preparation on Monday was filling my gas tank and getting cash out of the atm. (No electricity = No gas pumps and no computers to run credit card transactions!) I already keep at least a case of bottled water and plenty of food on hand. At work on Monday we were reminded of our emergency procedures and all exchanged phone nunbers just in case. All schools were closed for Tuesday and in clearwater they had evacuated all the mobile home parks in preparation. Bruce and I kept tracking Fay and by late Monday night felt that she was going to miss us so he packed up and headed out to Vegas. He had a trade show for the prepaid industry and was a key presenter. So Tuesday, I kissed him good bye at the airport and went to work. The news was that Fay and made landfall way south of us and we didn't have to worry about flooding.

Since Monday we have had high winds up to 30 mph and some rain as we watched Fay boomerang around us. I really feel like God drew a circle around Tampa/Clearwater and said ok this area is safe. If you don't believe me here is a picture of Fay's path. I know weather is crazy but I know I was protected and I am very happy that I didn't have to face my first tropical storm by myself. (I can't count Sparky because he gets just as scared as I do, poor kitty!) My appreciation and gratitude is boundless.


  1. I am so glad that you guys are safe! I love you! Any chance a little scare like that would make you move back to Utah?

  2. I'm very glad that storm didn't affect you guys. Boy, those things can be pretty scary. Glad your safe. :)
