'Hurricane' Hanna Strikes (and no, it's not my sister)
Yesterday had us cooped up inside while the remnants of Hurricane Hanna. It rained a lot and there were mild wind gusts. For all the preparations we did I'm rather disappointed. Not that I'd like to see a full scale, 70 miles per hour winds tropical storm/hurricane but something a little more than a couple puddles in the yard. The boys were expecting a weather adventure but we mostly had a lazy day that included a lot of cartoons. They didn't complain. By seven the sun came out in time to set and today the sky was cloudless and robin egg's blue. The storm washed all the dusk of late summer from the trees and it was truly a gorgeous day.
