Some of you know that he was in Florida doing storm duty after Faye hit. He got home around 2 am Monday morning. Well, then they got called back out to work here in Alabama Tuesday at 2:45 pm. He was gone overnight but has been back since. They are waiting to see what happens with the new storm out there. No matter where it hits they'll probably be sent out. The best case scenario is for it to go back out to sea, but that doesn't look likely. We are just hoping he has the whole weekend home!

Oh gosh, sunnflr! I hope he at least gets the three day weekend at home for some R nd R. This time of year is no doubt a very busy time for him, huh? And with all those storms out in the Atlantic, who can tell what is gonna hit, or where, next? I'm with you, wish that storm would just turn around and stay out there in the vast blue sea. Hope you have a fun, relaxing weekend.

They are thinking they won't leave until at least Monday, hopefully anyway. I keep hoping the storm won't get as strong as they think!

What exactly does he do that he gets called away? I imagine the waiting is hard. Knowing you have to go soon but when and where? The storm coming sounds like it could be big and it has such a broad range of a target. I can't imagine living with that possibility. I am land locked here in the Midwest. We have tornadoes but they don't scare me.

He works for a contractor that puts up power lines. He is an apprentice lineman. They get called away when big storms come through to put people's power lines back up.

I hope so too, for your sake and the sake of many others.. This storm is sounding awful scary, especially for the Katrina victims.. I can't imagine going through Katrina and then about 3 years later, witout having the first mess cleaned up, having to even think about going through it again.. Tell him to stay safe and take care, sounds dangerous to me..

I know, I've been praying that it doesn't hit anywhere or if it does that it's not really bad. They still haven't finished fixing stuff from Katrina!

I bet you're glad to have him home for a little while! Did you get any rain from the hurricane? We got some yesterday and we are supposed to get a lot more. Right now it is not raining but it is a little chilly out. I just hope we don't get a whole bunch of rain. Have fun spending time with hubby! :)

Yeah we had lots of rain, and that's what the tornados were from. It's gone now thank goodness.

Yeah we have been getting rain off and on all day but really not as much as I thought we would get. :)

It was beautiful here today. I would have enjoyed it more without my headache, but it was still better than rain. Hopefully tomorrow will be pretty also.
