Hurricanes suck

I think Florida is telling us it really doesn’t like us. The year we were married (1998), there were MASSIVE fires all over Florida. It was so bad we had to scrape ash off of our cars as if it were snow. Everyone smelled as if they had been camping for a month. For our honeymoon we had gone to Orlando for 2 days. If we had tried to leave a week later, we would not have been able to make it as the fires had overtaken the Interstate and most of the other roads between Jacksonville and Orlando.
We move to Washington state that year and everything turns hunky-dory. We move back in late 2003, and in 2004 we have the worst hurricane season on record. This year, there have been more hurricanes formed in July than has ever been recorded before…. Generally it is up to the B name by the end of July. Tomorrow Gert should be formed enough to name. Blah.
Otherwise, not much else is going on. We are trying to decide which room to make into Sol’s room. Then we are going to paint it and recarpet it. We are going back and forth on tile or wood floor for most of the house. The kitchen will definately have tile. It’s very exciting to be allowed to do things like this.
