Ida – Non Event Here

Tropical Storm Ida was a non event here. Really nothing happened.

This pan didn’t even blow off.

Although Ida was not much here, Little Cayman and Cayman Brac got hit pretty hard. News still to come in

This storm reminded me of Hurricane Charley, Charley passed between Grand Cayman and Little Cayman. The eye was less than 10 miles away and there was no wind and no rain. Tropical storm Ida passed between Grand Cayman and Little Cayman too.

So today it’s back to work. I was expecting a day off, just in time for the weekend!

Sweet disappointment!

Have a fantastic weekend!

We are dead center for Tropical Storm Grace. My hurricane shutters are up already or ready to go instantly, but I don’t expect it to really be that bad.

I drove past a grocery store yesterday during lunch hour and traffic was atrocious. People were blocking 4 lanes of traffic to enter the grocery store parking lot. It never occurred to me why until I got back to work and thought about it for a minute.

Not to be boastful, but I somewhat maintain a state of readiness even when there are no storms coming.

Have a happy Tuesday, stay dry, & don’t freak out.
