This evening after I left work, I made a trip to the emergency room up the street from the house. It wasn’t actually an "emergency" but I didn’t have time to go to the doctor during the day, so I went to the emergency room with my problem. Seems *something* (ant, spider – don’t know) got a hold of my left foot Saturday. I didn’t feel anything when it happened, but I noticed by Saturday evening there were three small bites on my left foot that I knew were not mosquito bites. I told myself if it didn’t look much different by Tuesday that I would go to the doctor, and so I did. I wanted to make sure that it wasn’t something that potentially could be serious.
Just wanted to take a moment to say hello to any newbies who have stumbled on to the ST blog from other sites. I hope you like what you see here and will bookmark/blogroll this blog and return often. Make sure to tell your friends, too
The satellite pictures are not pretty. Maximum sustained winds right now are at 160 mph, travelling NNW at a speed of 11 mph. Last information I heard, this category 5 hurricane is exepected to make landfall in New Orleans between 3 and 4 a.m. CT Monday. Our friend and commenter here Big Bang Hunter posted this in another thread (as I was remiss in not starting one sooner but I’m trying to make up for lost time):
As if Florida hasn’t been through enough this year I’m glad to hear my friends in FL made it through this one safely. Some weren’t so lucky. The latest projection on the path she’ll be taking is here. All of North Carolina is in that path. Update: WHOA – Jeanne Winds Blow Man Through Plate-Glass Window
