Deceptively Beautiful

One good thing from Charley was that everyone decided to take Frances more seriously. While the decision to close schools was made pretty early last time (because they needed the buses for evacuees), most businesses were open right up until the government issued a “stay off the roads” order… only about 6 hours before Charley hit the area. This time, even the mall decided to close a day early to give people time to prepare. So, we’ve basically had a beautiful Friday to sleep in, then finish our preparations for the storm.

I can only imagine how utterly shocked people in the days before satellites and hurricane warnings must have been when a hurricane showed up. Since it sucks all the surrounding weather out of the way, it has been fricking gorgeous today. Not even the usual afternoon thunder showers.
