Rachel comes home

Our daughter Rachel flew in from St. Thomas last Friday.  We all met her at the airport. After living there for 2-1/2 years she had the good fortune to experience hurricane Earl before her departure.Good fortune in that the storm came close enough for her to witness the ferocity without the risk of life and limb.
Rachel and a friend took refuge in a hotel room for the duration of the storm. The iguana  seems to be weighing his options. Stay outside with the storm or come inside with the humans.

How scary to be that close to a hurricane and how wonderful to have your daughter home for awhile. It's always special time.

Hurricanes are truly awesome, but I have come to hate them because they make me scared, destroy my landscaping, and bring tornadoes in their wake.

We stayed during Hurricane Charley in '04. A male hummingbird decided to stay at our feeder through the entire thing. He must have gotten caught before he took shelter. The feeder gave him the energy to fight to...stay at the feeder until the storm was over. I've never seen anything like it.
