Go Away, Fay!

19 Aug

Trpoical Storm Fay has been slowly bearing down on us over the past day or so. My wife Eileen snapped the above image last night — as the sun was setting on Siesta Key. Pretty ominous sight, but beautiful at the same time.

As it turns out, the mighty Fay has fizzled a good bit and appears to be turning east at this time (10:15 am on Tuesday, August 19th). The bands of rain are knocking on our door and it’s quite breezy this morning. Looks like we dodged a bullet this time, although some localized street flooding can be expected in our area. After all, the highest point around here is only about 10 feet above sea level.
