Howling Winds on Friday: Barking Dog Report

For new readers of Beach Drive Blog, a "Barking Dog Report" is when our home is Istock_000002610704medium_1 preparing for a nasty storm.  My husband (fondly) refers to me as a "barking dog" when I think trouble may be near as Inervously pace around the house.   Based current forecasts on Friday, I think we could be in for a doozie.
