Weather update for TS Fay ..... Well, things are taking a worse turn for us here in Tallahassee. Trees and powerlines down all over the county, my buddy over at the local big bass lake west of me is without power now for 24 or more hours. He has two generators and plenty of gas though. I haven't lost power - but I'm nearly within sight of the power plant - I'm on the main leg of the power grid - lucky me! Lots of rain, some local flooding in the low areas, limbs down all over - the roads are a real mess! One electrical worker was electrocuted to death - our only local fatality so far that I know of. This is a BIG mess, and clean-up will take some major work! The tropical storm is west of us now, and slowly leaving our AO. My 'hood just has some leafy trash in our yards, and I'm high enough on the bluff for no flood worries, and the wind just goes on over me - no ground effect hardly at all. Next week, things could still be bad - the rivers are still flowing and bringing more water down to us! A bunch of folks still without power. Water could be affected too. I refilled several big water jugs yesterday - have 14 gallons of good fresh water stored for drinking, and more that is a year old (hadn't rotated it out yet) - I can use it for washing and toilet flushing if I lose city water. The Florida State Emergency Response is good. They were up and running as the storm was approaching - my supervisor is on the team at their headquarters. They had resources already staged and ready to roll. No "Blanco/Naginitis" down here!
