The calm before the storm

Hurricane Frances is getting closer. People here in Saint Augustine have been stocking up on water and other supplies. Things are still quite calm here though.

We’ve started getting the house in order. Storm shutters are up. Various objects have been transferred to the garage.

Right now there’s a 30% chance that we might get a direct hit. If an evacution order is given for Saint Augustine Beach (where we are now), then it will probably be issued tomorrow. If that happens, then we’re going to decamp to Saint Augustine proper where Jessica’s grand aunt has a spacious, sturdy house. The only thing lacking in the house is internet access.

Right now the skies are clear and the surf is up… really up.

It really takes a lot for spam to be memorable, but this is one of the weirdest I’ve seen a long time.

Banksy is a London grafitti artist. This is my favourite painting of his.
