good luck. Folks are usually wishing that for us in Florida but Irene is sitting off of Jacksonville right now and we're only getting some of the outlying bands for showers and winds. On the other hand, our mommy-to-be, Juneau, seems almost ready to begin her whelping activities so this weekend will be busy for us even if we're not dodging another hurricane. It would be nice to get through this without losing power -- a definite possibility earlier in the week. Hope she decides to turn East and miss both NYC and New England (my sister lives in CT).
