Strong winds mixed with rain ...

     Lucky for us, South Florida did not receive a direct hit from Dennis, although his travels a little to the west have left us experiencing plenty of strong winds mixed with rain for hours on end. This time it's little more than an inconvenience, but our neighbors in the Keys were asked to evacuate.

     Any of you that were planning to attend the Underwater Music Festival in the Lower Key's yesterday, should note that it has been postponed until next weekend.

     I do want to say that my thoughts are with those that have already suffered a loss in Cuba, Haiti and Jamaica, as well as with those of you like Connie, on the Gulf Coast that are sitting and waiting to find out how much of a Menace this Dennis will be.

Glad you were not in the path of it.  Thinking of all those who are affected.

Thank goodness you arent in the path. I hope Dennis finds a gentle way to suprise those in its path.

Luckily I wasn't in his path here either, but we did (and are) getting a lot of rain and a good amount of wind from him. My poor horse is now in Day 2 of stall confinement. I have hopes of being able to return him to his pasture this evening. Along with you, my thoughts and best wishes are with those in Dennis' path.

Glad this one went right on past you.  I would love to attend one of the underwater music festivals!  The reef at Looe Key is one of the prettiest I've been on.
