What hurricane?

As most of you have probably discerned, we are back from our trip to Disney World! We missed Hurricane Matthew by one day. Ironically, I had no idea there even was a hurricane, although I did notice it was a slight bit windier the day we left. I was completely oblivious because,

(1) I didn’t watch the news or weather the entire time we were gone.

(2) I didn’t check my phone for news or weather.

Once when I was on a business trip, I was accused of being a *bleeping* Luddite, because I was blissfully unaware that my phone had some sort of map-navigator functionality. Instead, I had brought paper maps to navigate my way around Phoenix. After realizing that the navigator only told me to turn after I had passed my exit, I went back to the paper maps. I find it way easier to just memorize my route.

Luckily, we did no driving whatsoever after we arrived in Orlando. After my daily commute of 144 miles per day, I was relieved to let someone else carry that burden. Ahhhh…relaxation.


I could get used to this view.

    I was wondering if you got caught in Mathew or not. Glad to hear you didn’t. Living in the Gulf South I watched it as soon as it was a hurricane and especially after a lot of models had it wrapping back and heading back to the Gulf…

      I am glad we didn’t. Instead we had a pretty nice week. I am glad we don’t have to worry about hurricanes or tornadoes, instead I just have to keep track of snow storm systems.
