It seems we have a storm a-comin'. Hurricane Fay is huffing and puffing much like the Big Bad Wolf did in the tale of The Three Little Pigs. You might recall that he was inept, and like him, I expect Fay is nothing but a bunch of hot air. Most often, these things turn out to be a good rain. That's all--just a good rain.
The official Atlantic hurricane season is from June 1st to November 30th. However, the folks I know pay more attention to the Caribbean saying:
June - too soon.In South Florida, we are constantly bombarded by a barrage of local weatherpersons interrupting our television and radio programs to tell us to "batten down the hatches!" I've lived here for over forty years, and I still don't know where these hatches are located! It's August, so following the Caribbean warning, I'll look out--for the hatches, I guess.
July - stand by!
August - look out you must.
September - remember.
October, all over.
Our schools will open a day or two late. The children will have a longer summer, and my lawn will get a nice watering. I hope your day is sunny.
PS The weather guys and gals have taken over the airways (no Regis for me!) and are warning us to stay inside (all while they stand on the beach, with lovely palm trees swaying in the background).
