It's wet… damn wet.

Well this has to be a record… 12 days into the Hurricane season Mr. Alberto is knock-knock-knocking on Gainesville’s door. Generally, hurricanes don’t hit Gainesville with a lot of wind. The problem here, of course, it that Gainesville floods like a mother– and to top it off, we lose power on a strong thunderstorm (city owned electricity).

In a city where trimming a tree is akin to sacrificing virgins, a good storm can throw limbs and trees all over the place. Since a lot of power is still above ground, when we lose a tree, we lose power.

Anyway, got my gallon’s of drinking water, a full tank of gas in the truck (and motorcycle), and got me a new flashlight. Hopefully, it will be all for nothing and just results in a day without school. 🙂
