This isn't a hurricane, but it's as close as I've seen one here. It's still a tropical storm. The winds are strong and sustained, and the rain has been pouring down since somewhen in the night with no sign of abatement. The eye of the storm is due to pass over us - or might even be around nearing or leaving now for all I know. The power is still on, I don't see any fallen tree limbs out the window, and a whole work day at home (for a change!) awaits me.
