Wet and Not-so-Wild

Out here on the far fringes of Hurricane Ike, we were awakened this morning by the sound of hard rain being blown against our 7th-floor window by tropical-storm-force winds, as Cheryl explains much more colorfully. 70% chance of thunderstorms today, says the forecast. And yet, we know we're getting off easy here and there doesn't seem to be any signs of concern among the locals. In a few minutes, we will brace ourselves for 40-50 mph wind gusts and head off to Brennan's for breakfast.
