Rock me like a hurricane! Charley is on its way and this region is bracing in a major way - mandatory evacuations for barrier islands and low-lying areas, grocery stores out of water, home improvement warehouses out of plywood. Preparations for me are minimal, since I live just outside the flood plain on the ground floor. My hope is that the Timber Chase pond can absorb the rain that is on its way and that the tree outside my window can hold together or, if push comes to shove, break in such a way that it doesn't come through my glass slider. In the meantime, I'll be getting provisions ready for the first weekend of the Athens 2004 Olympic Games - the Summer Games of the XXVIII Olympiad.
