This is summer

This is another post that got lost in the shuffle, written sometime during the last week of June.

My least favorite time of year is here, but a string of days with our typical (at one time) afternoon thunderstorms have my spirits up. It’s one aspect of summer in Florida I enjoy. It’s hot and sunny all morning, until the early afternoon. Then dark clouds start forming on the eastern horizon. We get blasted with a wicked downpour and window rattling thunder for twenty exhillarating minutes. You have to take the bad with the good though. The sun always comes back out. Any standing water seems to boil away in an instant, supersaturating the air with so much heat and water it’ll make the strongest person weep for their momma.

Mr Carrier, we salute you.

Give the gift of words.
