Tropical Storm Fay...

[Image of 5-day forecast of predicted track, and coastal areas under a warning or a watch]Here we go again.  Currently, forecasters are putting the track of this storm to go right over our home on Monday evening.  The projections have it just under Hurricane status.  They are predicting 60 knot winds and 75 knot gusts.  Yes, I know, none of us know what a knot is.  That translates to 69.1 mph winds (exactly .9 mph less than a hurricane) with gusts up to 89 mph.  It is traveling across Hispaniola (DR and Haiti) and then will continue right over Cuba before it turns north into the South-West FL coast.  I am sure the fact that it is hovering over so much land it is keeping it from strengthening. 

Keep watch with us here...
