Ophelia

A couple folks have asked me about or mentioned Hurricane Ophelia, which is churning along the coast of my state, and looks to be making landfall near Wilmington and Southport, then is forecasted to go up the coastline, and then out into the Atlantic. As of this morning, it's hot, windy and very dark outside. It looks like we'll get some rain and wind, but thankfully nothing major. :)

Glad all you guys will get is a little wind and rain. :D

Good to hear that it will be missing y'all, Kelly. Yes, I know how irritating it can be to wait for a hurricane (getting all the emergency supplies, especially the giant bags of M&Ms that are so crucial), and then have it NOT hit. But after living all my life (except for a few years) in Houston and not being in the path of a horrible hurricane, I've learned to deal with having prepared for a huge storm only to have it fizzle out by the time it gets here. When I was kid I used to adore hurricanes coming in because it meant no school, no electricity, and reading all I wanted by candlelight. Of course, I also was born AFTER Camille, Celia, and Carla, so I had no idea how truly destructive they can be.

Hey, Kelly -- I saw my dad yesterday for lunch and he wanted me to tell you he said 'Hello' and he hoped y'all were surviving the wind and rain okay . . .
