Watching and wishing
It's less than a week away from my trip to Walt Disney World, and my emotions are all over the place! Just a few days ago I was so happy and excited to watch the forecasting for Hurricane Ivan get farther and farther away from Orlando, with no other tropical depressions in sight (of course, my thoughts are with everyone on the Gulf Coast who will be affected). Then suddenly, Tropical Storm Jeanne pops up out of nowhere to give me something to worry about! I keep checking for updates (I even know the schedule when they're released) and hoping to see Jeanne sputter out or change course. None of the sites I read seem terribly worried about it, but there's so much Ivan coverage right now that it's tough to find good details on Jeanne. All I can do is wait and see - I'm normally so easy-going, so I really hate worrying about something. Right now my hopes are on this quote from the National Hurricane Center - "A lot can happen between now and then. We're not, at this point, going to get too worried about it (for Florida)." If it were just me going on this trip, it wouldn't bother me, but I really want things to be nice for my parents. It's time for some serious Disney wishes and pixie dust!
