Long, long weekend

First and foremost, thanks for all of the wonderful messages and thoughtful comments with the passing of my grandfather. At first it was sort of hard to write that entry. After I wrote that I went upstairs to wake my brother and tell him and pretty much broke down again. When I later watched some of the comments go by and almost teared up at each and every one, but was better later in the day.

Grandma is doing well. Quiet, but good as far as we can tell and getting out and doing things. Memorial service will be this Friday, so I'm headed down to JAX this Wednesday morning. I'm staying at a hotel on the ocean front this time (splurging a little bit) and won't come back until Sunday at this point.

Watching Hurricane Hannah blast through was pretty cool. After all was said and done, the peak wind gust was 30mph at about 08:30 and received 4.43" of rain--excellent. There was some minor flooding in the area, but nothing more than we would get from a really good thunderstorm. Ike is a whole other storm to be reckoned with and looks like it's headed for my friends in TX. healingdrysuits just yelled to me from downstairs that he just saw on the news that about 90% of Haiti was deforested (leaves removed from trees)--yikes!

I'm way, way behind on LJ, so I still find some time over the next few days to catch up on a few of my favorite people in LJ land. ;)

I found a neat "Landfall Regional Radar Loop" of Hanna that I thought you might like to see.
