Hurricane season is underway.

Today is the first day of hurricane season and it’s already off to a fast start. We’ve got Tropical Storm Barry which is currently soaking Florida with some badly needed rainfall. It’s been raining nonstop all day, which is quite a pleasant way to end the drought here.
This has been the worst drought I have ever been through. It’s nerve-wracking to see how low the water level has reached at the canals near where I live. I can’t even stand to read the paper about the drought’s effects on Lake Okeechobee, let alone see the horrifying photos of mud puddles in areas that once had enough water to accommodate boaters. I am happy that Nature has finally started the healing process on our fragile ecosystem.
