a day in the life - tropical storm hanna edition - part two

11:20 am
latest update from NOAA shows storm making a landfall a little south and west of us, which puts us in the "right front quadrant." typically the hairiest part of the storm. hopefully, though, we still won't see hurricane strength winds.
watching a hurricane come is tedious. it makes me sleepy.

jack and i have been testing the walkie talkies. for an hour. at least he feels free to roam the hotel without me attached to his side.

i want to go to my room and take a nap. it will be a long night (landfall is expected around 2 am tomorrow.) however, this is a "typical workday" now that all of our major preparations are done. hmmmm, how can i get motivated?

jack is still "testing" his walkie talkie. i just turned mine off...
