Florida Keys (high 84, low 75)
These temps I have been posting every day are from the weather app I have on my phone and are what is predicted for that day. Our actual temperatures overnight have been a bit higher and we’ve had to run the a/c all night long the past few nights. I hate that!
Yesterday, Al woke up feeling bad and he felt worse as the day progressed. We determined it was another diverticulitis attack. He’s had a few of these before, so we’re starting to recognize them earlier. The last time he got one, I read online to take Aloe Vera and papaya juice. It did seem to help him. We’re doctoring him and so far at least he doesn’t seem to be getting worse, and is maybe a little better.
Last night I woke up during the middle of the night and checked the weather radar on my phone weather app.
The same system that had caused all the tornado’s in Texas was heading towards the central Florida gulf coast and I wanted to see if it was coming towards us.
Yikes…there was a huge red squall line offshore, heading right for us. I checked the weather radio (that had been silent) and it seemed to be a bit behind the times. I was getting nervous, but no tornados were predicted, but they were saying we could get strong winds with gusts up to 45mph. Of course there would be no sleeping for me until it passed.
It came in two waves and while we got some pretty good rain, the wind was minimal. It was a good thing because there were a lot of awnings left out last night. This morning there are some puddles around but I haven’t seen any damages. I don’t think we got much wind…at least not here.
Weather is always a big concern for me. I get pretty nervous. I was glad when the system passed. I love the weather apps on my Droid. You can see exactly where the storm is and know exactly when you can go back to sleep.
It’s cloudy and a little breezy this morning, which is okay because Al is not up to anything today anyway. I guess it will be a good day to get caught up on my laundry.
