It just started raining outside within the past hour, and we have a pretty steady breeze with gusts up to minimal tropical storm speeds. We’ve finished our final preparations, including taping up the north-facing windows (winds should be coming from the south, so the south-facing windows are boarded up), moving some furniture away from those northern windows, and filling the bathtubs with water. I can still hear people hammering outside.
I’ve taken a couple pictures, which you can see in the new Hurrican Ivan photo album. More to come, as we have power.
