Go away Ms. Fay
I thought our experience with hurricanes was left behind with our days on Cayman. But I was wrong. Tropical Storm Fay came in and lingered over us for days. I don't mind a rainy day here and there, but this was another instance of rain for days on end. Having grown up in the Midwest, I thought the course of hurricanes was different. I figured that a big storm came through and then everything settled back down. But, these storms come in with a vengeance and then what follows is rain, flooding, wind, tornadoes, etc... for days and days. I know myself enough to know that I could not live somewhere like Seattle that sees a lot of rain and cloudy days.
Once the winds settled down, Gav and I went outside and played like fools in the rain. We had so much fun. Splashed in the puddles and got drenched in the downpour. Today the sun was shining for awhile. It was the greatest feeling ever to not have to have lights on during the day and to get out for our morning walk (and not get soaked).
