Ready for the rain

We're on-site for the relief operation for Tropical Storm Fay. As of this morning, the National Weather Center is no longer predicting a hurricane, but a big, wet storm. Tornadoes and floods are expected, so we're sitting tight and waiting for it all to pass.

We have a 50 amp hookup, which will help keep the air conditioners running and drying out the bus after the inevitable window leaks. We're parked about 2 blocks from headquarters and are using Sean's scooter to get back and forth. He's going to try to get the scooter inside the HQ building for the worst of the storm. While we don't worry much about the wind for Odyssey, the People 150 is a different matter. The very lightness that makes the scooters easy to get in and out of the storage bay make them a bit tippy in 50mph cross-winds.

More details and perhaps photos later. We have the key to the building and so need to be the first ones in this morning.
