they say if you live long enough, you will see anything.
I have now seen anything and everything
Alpha!
Imagine!
now I hope that since the record has been broken, it will remain a record for many years to come.
I hope next year is not like this year.
my heart can't take it!

I wonder how media will relay this information ...

Anyway, it's really incredible to see history like this. I just hope that Haiti won't have problems. A friend of mine is Haitian.

All I can or want to think about now is children rolling balls of snow into images of fat smiley men, clear clean snowflakes lazily drifting by the window, the crackling of burning wood in the fireplace, the sound of football on the t.v. and the smell of turkey in the oven. Unfortunately, I live in Florida so most of that will remain a wishful image. I'm really kind of tired of bending palm trees, waves in the streets, roofs flying through the air and the vacant stares of devasated people. I just want this season over. I just want to feel like I have some control again. The Greek alphabet is so appropriate now....letters that reflect the beginning and the END.

Discussion from NWS Tampa holds promise:

A NASTY DAY MONDAY WITH RAIN AND COOLING WINDS GUSTING OVER TROPICAL STORM FORCE FROM SARASOTA
NORTH...AND SHIFTING WINDS FROM EAST TO NORTH GUSTING NEAR OR ABOVE HURRICANE FORCE IN CHARLOTTE AND LEE COUNTY ALONG WITH 3 TO 6 HOURS OF TORRENTIAL RAINS. BY MONDAY NIGHT/TUESDAY...SAY "HELLO" TO DECEMBER-LIKE TEMPERATURES AND THE END OF OUR HURRICANE SEASON SINCE THE COOL AIR WILL SOON KNOCK DOWN GULF TEMPERATURES INTO THE HOSTILE 75 DEGREE RANGE.
