Macon Whoopie

Don't ya just love that name? That's the name of the hockey team here in Macon, Georgia. Oh, right, I forgot to mention that we are in Macon. We left at 5:30 this AM and didn't really hit a whole lot of traffic until Atlanta. We found out later that many of the Gustav evacuees headed to Atlanta. We rolled in here about 5:30 PM and were greeted with some showers which apparently are connected with Gustav.

We are staying in the Best Western here for the night and will head on to see Mickey tomorrow in Orlando. It appears now that Hurricane Hanna may visit us on Thursday or Friday. Great. Just Great!!! So much for our trip to Disney World. So now, we don't know whether to ride it out in Orlando and stay an extra day or head home to Sanibel. I guess we will play it by ear. My friend, Linda, who lives in Titusville just got cleaned up from Fay and now is facing Hanna. But NASA will probably give her a "snow" day so that's not all bad. Stay safe, Linda. And, oh yeah, just in case we haven't had enough of hurricanes and tropical storms this year--Ike is steaming his way west and they don't really know where he will end up. And it appears there are a few others revving up out there. It is going to be a loooonnnggg fall.

So, if I can get free internet at the Doubletree in Lake Buena Vista, I will keep you posted on the exciting adventures of the Snowbirds as they wing their way south.

I vote for staying an extra day visiting Mickey. Hanna's gonna swing out to the right and just give Sanibel a drenching.

LOL at "Macon Whoopie" :D

Macon Whoopie? What exactly were they thinking? I can just hear the cheerleaders! :) Go snowbirds...see Mickey (and would you say Hi for me?).

I bet we passed as you were heading south through Atlanta. We were headed north making an afternoon trek to the Aquarium right around the same time! =)

And those evacuees you mentioned? I think most of them were all at the Georgia Aquarium with us-LOL!

Have a safe trip, and say Hi to Mickey for us!

I'll be crossing my fingers for you that Hannah ends up being all talk and very little action. Have fun with Mickey!
