President’s Own United States Marine Band!

Right now, the President’s Own Marine Band is about to play and I’m very excited! There is a good turn out:

Right now they are just warming up, but they are playing some cool stuff. One of the songs, Elsa’s Procession to the Cathedral from Lohengrin, my band has played before.

The concert is about to begin, so bye for now!

Hurricane Matthew

I just wanted to put my two cents in about the coming hurricane. So, if you don’t live in or around Florida, this may be an unfamiliar topic. Well, the recent hurricane, a category 4, has been tracking closer and closer to my home, and I am getting a little freaked out. So, if no one reads this, I don’t mind because this is just an exercise of relieving stress.

You see, I live on the coast, a five minute’s drive from the beach. I live a thirty second walk from a major river. We are forecasted, at this point, to have sustained 100 mph winds. Needless to say, I am a little frightened. I am not sure what to do because we have done everything and the cone keeps tracking further west closer and closer to my home and I hope very much that we do not get the eye wall. If that happens, I am not sure how much of my house will be left. (Hey, I can always say my house was destroyed on the goddamn FAFSA and get some f*ckin’ money for college)

So, for any of you Floridians out there, stay safe and, for those of you far and away from Florida, wish me luck!

Update:

The hurricane ended up veering north ( wobble baby, am I right?) Everything is good in my area, but there was a lot of flooding up north. We really lucked out here!
