Hurricane update

The latest data from NOAA predicts that Hurricane Irene will pass directly over Taylorville and the Lynch homestead. The wind will be blowing a terrible gale out of the southeast. Then the eye will pass over Taylorville. The sun will come out. Wind will die down to a nice confortable breeze. There will be a few thousand sea birds, mostly gulls and petrels flying in huge circles in the calm air. All are trapped in the eye. A few have been in the eye from Puerto Rico and the Bahamas. It clouds up, the wind increases, in a matter of minutes the wind is back to hurricane strength only blowing in the opposite direction.
The weather station is talking a foot of rain.

Batten down the hatches.
