Thankfully we returned from our Labor Day weekend road trip before Frances had come to the Atlanta area. Unfortunately, we woke up at 5:30am, warm and to the beeps of a smoke alarm's dead battery. Frances has arrived. As of right now, both power and phone lines are down and I update this blog from my sister-in-law's place. Half the city is down, schools were canceled, tress have fallen, and the lakes are high. Even my first day at work has also been postponed due to the unfriendliness of Frances. Nothing compared to all that has occurred in Florida, and for that I thank my lucky stars and untuck my shirt.

So I've been out all weekend long and have not updated this blog anywhere. My friends are I are walking down Michigan Ave. in Chicago, Illinois, and here we are at the Apple Store where I can update this thing. It's been great. Camping in Kentucky, partying in Detroit, a wedding in Merrillville, Indiana and now pizza in Chicago before our trip back to Atlanta. We'll see if we catch any rain from Hurricane Frances on the way back Monday. Wish you were here.
