What a Dud.

Tropical Storm Edouard has turned out to be a complete dud. I was hoping for some good rain; some good wind; some good destruction (but not to our house). But instead, we just got kind of a continuous light rain all day starting at around 7am. Boring.

The forecast made it sound like we were in for a big one. And after tropical storm Allison, everyone was wary of just what a tropical storm could do. Most all of the offices around town closed for the day as well as the daycares/schools. Not our office, though! We got an e-mail that said, "Your personal safety is our utmost concern" but we're still going to be open and if you don't come in, be sure to go ahead and charge that to your vacation account, mmmmKay?

I woke up early this morning and checked the weather. It was still predicting that the storm would hit in the late morning / early afternoon, so I figured I'd come to work, get in a few hours and then leave before the real flooding started. Dumb storm didn't create enough rain to even think about heading home, so here I sit. The good news is that since I came in so early this morning, I get to leave pretty soon. :)

The nanny is off this week, so the kids have been spending some (even more than usual) quality time with Daddy. They stopped by here for lunch today, too, which was a nice break since I was hoping to not be here anymore, but still was.

Well, time for me to go home and inspect the storm damage! Not.

I think it was a fire drill. Had me thinking of everything that would need to be done to prepare for a hurricane coming our way....
