Hurricane Irene sits just off shore this morning and she is making liars out of our weather forecasters; as if that's a new story.
Here is a shot from my truck as I was taking Little Bit to school. If you look closely at the horizon you will see the deep dark clouds. Those clouds are over the Atlantic and are just a few miles away.
Below is another view from Little Bit's school. Mere seconds after this picture was taken a series of wind gust exceeding 40 mph accompanied by waves of rain hit us.
Just before the principle of Little Bit's school opened my truck door she asked, "Papa, do I get to stay in my new school all year?"
"Yes, Honey, why?"
"Because I just love it, Papa."
I drove away with a smile on my face. Her attitude makes all our financial sacrifice seem puny in comparison.
Yes, I know her hair was a mess when this picture was taken. Her mom needs a good butt kicking.
