Tropical Storm Hanna

I'm back in FL, but following the Open on TV. Today was a bit of a fiasco, weather-wise (in NY). Federer/Djokovic started at 11am on Ashe & the afternoon forecast was dismal. Roger won his semi as the raindrops started to fall.

Originally the other semi was to follow, but they ended up moving the Nadal/Murray match to Armstrong & started it at noon. Rafa was down two sets to love when Hanna moved in.

Since the weather was not gonna clear, they scheduled the Nadal/Murray match to finish after football at 4pm on Sunday (& it was being moved from Armstrong to Ashe in the middle of the match). I couldn't believe they weren't gonna play in the morning.

The Women's Final was postponed until 9pm Sunday & the Men's Final was set to be played at 5pm Monday. That's just crazy! The only good thing about the rain was that Susan got to shoot the Official US Open Rubber Froggie & Rubber Duckie floating in the flooded stadium ... $16 well spent.

If only I could convince the powers that be to use the photo as the cover - it would help off set the expense of the frog and duck.
