I hope they don't have caller ID

Tropical Storm Fay is still hanging around. She's moving at walk speed (not to be confused with warp speed). She passed us last night but the southwest quadrant of the storm is full of rain. We're floating down here. It's not as bad as some other places like Brevard County (Cape Canaveral/Cocoa Beach) but it's hazardous; so I just sent a phone call canceling school to 185,000 homes at 9 p.m. I hope they don't have caller ID. I don't need them calling me back.

....oh; and I made the call with my one phone line (non-wireless) on laptop power ... in the dark. Our power is out. Thank goodness I only had to dial once.

It was nasty enough Wednesday and Thursday mornings that I called off my runs. Storm management was more essential. There's a storm of my own waiting for me Sunday - a 23 mile long run.

Wow - you guys are getting it good. Hopefully by Sunday you won't need a canoe to do your 23.

Hee. Dialing. Jon is funny.

Do you have a super master escape plan?

I bought a belt pack thing today for the marathon . . . for all the fancy stuff i need to carry while we run - like nail polish and stuff.

When do we get the 23-mile post? What? are you all busy, like, working or something?
