Kelsie asked about the colored lines on the NOAA maps... if you look at the key in the upper right hand corner it shows that the colors correlate to different levels of storm watch/warnings.

Blue is Tropical Storm Warning - which is what we've been experiencing today.

The delivery truck for the pet store came around noon and between my bosses, two boarding staff, Scott and I and another employee an her husband, we got everything unloaded, unboxed and put away within about 2 hours.

Then the bosses took us to lunch at Jack Flats downtown where we enjoyed some good food and drink and trivia games until the power went out... That only lasted for about a half hour and then it came back on.

We experienced a second power outtage for about 20 minutes about an hour ago, but nothing that has caused us discomfort or danger.

The pet store will re-open tomorrow at 10am and Jen told me I can come in at 2pm instead of noon.
