A Stormy Weekend

I don't normally blog on the weekend, but this weekend will be an exception.  The entire state of Florida is experiencing high winds and surf until the work week begins.  Isn't that the way it usually is?!  It's not a hurricane, but the winds are blowing about 30 miles per hour (it seems higher than that sometimes!) and boaters and swimmers are warned to stay out of the water due to 11 foot waves, riptides, and winds.

Naturally, I had to go check out conditions at the beach.

Even the surfers are staying out of the water today.

Hubby ventured outside our 5th wheel and took a couple of pictures too.

We'll be staying inside the rest of the day and figuring out how to use the new Family Tree Maker I just got in the mail.  The weatherman says we're under a flood watch too, and could easily get 8 inches of rain today.  It could get interesting.  Have a great weekend!

    Your hubby's work place is one very classy place to work. Glad he loves it!
