So… this afternoon, as I was checking what the weather would be like in Victoria for next Wednesday evening’s special event (more info soon!), Carlos happened by my cube and asked if I was checking what the path of Hurricane Frances. For those that don’t know, it’s looking like Florida is going to get hit by another hurricane, even though we’re still recovering from Charley. Come on, I know Charley was because of the botched election, but what’s this one supposed to be for?
I hadn’t even been thinking about it yet, Frances wasn’t supposed to make landfall until a few days after the beginning of Sept. Oh, wait, never mind. Carlos went on to say the airport is probably going to be closed… I can forget about my flight home.
No!!! That’s my vacation we’re talking about here!
My flight is supposed to leave Tampa shortly after 7am Saturday. Looks like there’s hope yet, though. According to the most-recent data weather.com has (this afternoon), it looks like I might just squeeze that flight in after all. Here’s Frances’ projected path:
So far I’ve read that this data is still pretty shaky, so I’ll be keeping you all up-to-date on the status of things. As for my apartment… well, I’ll be ready with the masking tape.
