Thursday night: Windy with rain showers. Low 64F. Winds NE at 15 to 25 mph. Chance of rain 80%. Rainfall possibly over one inch.
Friday: Showers early becoming less numerous later in the day. High 76F. Winds SSE at 10 to 20 mph. Chance of rain 40%.
Friday night: Rain showers in the evening becoming more intermittent overnight. Low 64F. Winds S at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 40%.

So Saturday is looking like the best day.  This is weird.  Hanna was a Tropical Storm...I'm not sure this thing has been determined yet, but we're getting decent wind and steady rain.  Nothing backbending or drenching, but steady.  The weather guy was thunderstorms associated with this storm.

That's the worst thing about a hurricane or TS is the thunderstorms / tornado activity.

This really isn't so bad....just a decent rain.

Tom's gonna have a rough ride up to E City today ---- wind and rain.  He didn't sleep well at all last night.  Of course he's obsessing over the court date.  He does's his normal thing to over analyze everything.

ME?  Whatever happens happens.  Do I think he deserves punishment?  Yes you betcha.  He says "I'm not habitual" and I say "Oh yes you are" which irritates him - but I come right back with "Excuse me, but do you or do you not consume and drive?" and of course he has to say that I'm right.

Well DUH of course I'm Right!

Do I think jail time is the right punishment?  Hmmmm 50/50..... it will make him mad.  It won't do any good for his health.  Miss T and I will do just fine if that's the sentence. 

I would personally like to see him wear an alcohol anklet.  It determines the amount of alk in the system, date and time.  Sure, it would probably be expensive, but then again so are these legal fees etc. 

If he is ordered to abstain and he gets this anklet and it shows substance, then it's jail time.

Knowing his dumb luck they'll dismiss these charges.........and he'll have beat the system again.  OR he'll get a suspended sentence with orders to attend an alcohol assessment class WHICH BY THE WAY is a joke!

I'm just glad that I'm holding on tight to the purse string and only allowing him to have what is necessary.  How sad to have to babysit a 56 yr old man.  But if that's what it takes to keep all safe.............

Bring proactive is good so that ankle bracelet may be the RIGHT way to go. I just love you and pray you and Miss T are safe and taken care of. THAT is what is important. XOXOXO

Hope you weather the storm ok and can't wait to hear about Tom's day in court.  That story about the passing gas was too much.  Take care.
