The news this early morning (6am) says this crazy Tropical Storm Fay is gonna hug the east coast for the day, basically moving up I-95. They expect it to make landfall again tomorrow morning near Flagler Beach where it will cause trouble once again. So, it doesn’t look like the girls can move back to their own digs. We still have big threats for tornadoes and flooding. I’ll be making my way to the barn shortly and pray all is well. I found my heavy duty Gortex boots, I have my rain jacket and hat – so bring it on Fay!

Gayle, Sam’s mom, wonders if we can all fit in her spare bedroom…

The horses are Strawberry & Rosie (who’s in her late 20’s) the people are Benito and Trish, barn owners. They were keeping calm & collected but I know they are very worried about all of us.

Still Stormy

Fay has slowed down to a crawl. We finally started getting some serious rain this evening… now they think she’ll eventually go out to sea, and then come back and hit us again! The girls are in for a long couple of nights.
