Hurricane Dean...the tail end

The weather here has been so bad since last night. It's kinda nice to have days like this though because I think it helps you appreciate the nice days. It's supposed to be like this till Friday though. Well, today after I finish on this blog I will be going over to my friend Amber's house and we will watch either Sweet Home Alabama or How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. And drink a cup of postum. Yummm...I have done 2 spin classes this week. Killer man...if there are any of you who haven't done them before and want a killer good workout, do a spin class. The first one I did was the first one in about a year and I pushed too hard in the first 10 min and felt like puking but I was a trooper and pushed my way through till the end and didn't give up. Although I did back off for sure. My heart rate stayed at a shocking 170-180 on the average the whole class. Yikes! 153 is 80% for me! I was most definetly maxed out. Well, take a look at these photos. The ocean is usually so friendly looking but today it is very angry. If you look closely in the top photo, you can see a little black mark. That is wat I call a die hard surfer. The waves were pretty good yesterday afternoon and the weather was still gorgeous. It was hard to believe it was gonna get like this...and can I believe Rick went to work in this today? I tried to get him to stay home but he said "It's not my nature". ha ha ha ha ha. Crazy guy!

I didnt know there was a hurricane there. I definitely know how hurricanes make the ocean look, after experiencing hurricane Ivan in Florida.
