Well, Ana fizzled, Bill has a high probability of being a fish storm, and Claudette popped out of nowhere and gave the FL panhandle some rain. Overall, I'd say that's a pretty good outcome for having three named storms at once.
We're down to 19 days on the countdown. A week from Thursday I'll do online check-in. We made a request for connecting rooms on our reservation, but I'm planning to fax them for connecting rooms on the first floor since we'll have a stroller and that will make it easier for us not to have to go up and down the elevator.
The other night, I went out to a park that's under development not too far from our house. It's going to be called the Presidential Park, and along with a shopping center called The Waterlights is supposed to open in 2009 according to the signs. When the park's complete, a gigantic bust will be in the park for every president. Right now, six of the busts are on the site. Other than the lagoon that was dug and these six busts, there's no sign that this park will actually be complete in 2009 (and at this rate, 2010 looks unlikely too ).
Here are the six busts:
From left to right: George H.W. Bush, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin D. Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy
I really like this one of the FDR bust because of the sunset behind it:

Well that turned out to be not so quick! The countdown continues...
