Although hard rain was coming down on me, my umbrella was leaking, and the fact that everything below my elbow was completely wet thanks to a couple of crazy drivers that aimed for several holes full of water and ZAS! gave me my second shower of the day; I kept on walking towards my work.
At about 5 min from work I decided to stop in a Parking building close to DHL in order to wait for the worst part of the storm to pass, and it was suddenly there where I started to look at people and realize that either I am really motivated to get to work or they were not.
They were standing waiting for it to be calmer in order to cross the street, in a place where they had a special roof for that, and get to work. And there I am completely wet waiting with them for 20 min in order to finalize my daily walk to work.
Interesting things happen when you open your eyes to what's going on out there, but tell me how motivated are you to get to work? Would you walk 2.2 miles in the rain to go work?

Daniela is almost 2 months old (tomorrow she will be) and amazingly she already responds to us and everything we do, and just like if she knew it was a special day she gave me this smile kind of her way of saying "Happy father's day"

In order for everyone to have an idea of the storms and track them I am putting the forecast of the current storm in my navigation bar, and trying to make it update with the latest data from the National Hurricane Center directly.
Just for historic knowledge here is a copy of last years Hurricane Season Map , I really do hope nothing serious happens this year:

Just to give you Soccer fans an idea, over 9,000 boxes of balls where delivered to the stadium by adidas, it was a major logistics challenge as the empty boxes alone would have formed a twelve-meter high wall around the Borussia Park playing field

|National Weather Service released its Atlantic Hurricane Outlook Update and it says there's a 70% chance of an above-normal hurricane season, a 20% chance of a near-normal season, and only a 10% chance of a below-normal season|
The forecast for 12-15 tropical storms, with 7-9 becoming hurricanes, and 3-5 of these becoming major hurricanes. The likely range of ACE index is 120%-190% of the median. This prediction reflects a very likely continuation of above-normal activity that began in 1995.
The vast majority of the tropical storms and hurricanes in 2005 will form during August-October. Historically, similar seasons have averaged 2-3 landfalling hurricanes in the continental United States and 1-2 hurricanes in the region around the Caribbean Sea.
And the Season started with this hale storm we had 2 days ago, so we better get prepared for it and pray everything goes well.
