Tropical Storm Waves Crash The Party

Tropical Storm Debby began to move inland north of Tampa at Cedar Key as the waves she left behind crashed over the seawall along Bayshore Boulevard. Flooding closed the boulevard for almost its entire length yesterday as canoes and kayaks took over from car traffic. Only picture takers and news crews ventured out today to take a look at the unusually high wave action. (Yes, I was soaked from the rain and flooding...the camera kept on ticking!)

Tornado and Hurricane Weather Updates

This is what regular television looks like when the National Weather Service and local stations break in (to the Spanish Grand Prix auto race) with storm warnings and a Tornado Warning for our area. I'm inside to stay dry and relax while the soon-to-be Hurricane Debby builds in strength west of us in the Gulf of Mexico. Local television stations make sure we pay special attention by commandeering our TV set and beeping and blaring warnings. (The red, orange and yellow areas on the map indicate different levels of rain intensity - it's a very wet mess right now.)
