Erin Palette, Mistress of the Elements

The Airport Road Fire in southern Flagler County remains 60% contained at 6,800 acres and remains within the control lines. The old Espanola Road fire is 14 acres and 100% contained. Two smaller wildfires, one three miles south of the Flagler County Airport and one in Daytona North are also mostly contained and all fires are either being mopped up or monitored for any hot spots.
The National Hurricane Center downgraded Subtropical Storm Andrea to a depression Thursday morning; one day after the low pressure system became the first named storm of the 2007 hurricane season.
I have decided to credit Saturday's nakedness with averting both disasters.

However, on perhaps a related note, the as-yet-unformed fifth storm of the season is named Erin.

I haven't yet decided if this is ironic or portentous.


  1. E, I'm glad you have not yet been burned or drowned.

  2. How about ironically portentous ;)

  3. I'm so glad that you are safe E. Also make sure you stay away from the panhandle I don't want you to bring anything this way. It would be really ironic if hurricane Erin came through here. I hope not.
