Tropical Storm Fay

Today we experienced Tropical Storm Fay! It wasn't overly exciting, but it was fun to be out in the wind and "Trist"! (Jim Cantore - our favorite Storm Tracker on The Weather Channel - said "Trist" is "Tropical Mist" LOL)
Really, it turned out to be nothing more than a very overcast, rainy day with lots of wind. I don't think that there was any major issues in this area whatsoever. (Then again, if you look at the map, you will see that we have pretty much just been hanging out in the eye of this thing for the most part!) I think that we ended up lucking out with this system, since from what the news has been saying, there have been nearly 5000 flood claims in the state of FL since Fay came ashore! Of course, we aren't through it completely, but I think that the "worst" of it is over.
So, I took some quick photos of the kids out playing in the early morning before the rain really started , but the wind was blowing nicely! They LOVED the cool weather that came along with Fay!! Here are Bug & Cricket playing with Fay!!

I am glad you posted this~I was wondering how you were affected by the storm. Good to hear it hasn't been too bad for you and the kids even had some fun in the wind!
