The big O town is waving bye to Fay! YAY!!!

The weather in O town this morning is clear with sunshine (yes, that big yellow thing in the sky is now visible to us!). I understand it will rain this afternoon, but it's the rainy season here so that's not big news.

We are now more humid than normal, of course. Everyone is emerging like monarch butterflies from their cocoons. People are in the stores and things are getting back to normal in town. Yes, even routine can be GOOD!

Unsure if there are more storms out there, but generally there are during this time of year. I will continue to blog the status of the storms in Orlando whenever they come.

The water is WAY up on the coast. The channel markers are sticking out only a few feet now (as opposed to at least 8 feet, I would think, before) and all the boats are floating high in the marina. The 2nd island out of the barge canal (next to the bird sanctuary one)...which I understand is called Ted's [what better name? Thanks, Don, for that one] longer has a visible sand bar. WOW!!!

Everyone take care, and try to stay dry.

This pic is of EW from the other side...see how high she is sitting now....WOW!! The marina people told us the water had dropped 6 inches before Sat, when this pic was taken. That means the water ALMOST went over the dock....

Ok, above photo is the marina dock where you see EW on the right. The water came up to just below the decking. We used to have to step down into EW when we boarded her. Now we have to step up. Also, this is where I saw a mother and baby manatee eating the vegetation on the top of the water yesterday. VERY COOL.
