This morning we were awakened to the screech of our weather radio. The US Weather Service initiated a tornado warning for Lake county, the one adjacent to our county, Sumter, to the East. Mrs. Major and I turned over and went back to sleep.
Today we were supposed to have lots of rain and high winds, but we had mostly sunshine. We had brief periods of heavy rain and moderate winds as a couple of feeder bands went by, but all in all, it’s been a pretty quiet day.
The reason: Fay headed further East than forecast. I think we’re going to escape the brunt of the storm.
