It's raining...it's pouring in touristland!

We have not had rain for months and it is nice to FINALLY have it. All week, as a matter of fact. My little garden is loving it. I know my water bill is!

There's a terrible secret about O Town drivers...we don't do well driving in rain. We should since it rains a TON here. They don't call Florida a tropical paradise for no reason, don't cha know?

So when everyone gets out on the roads during the rush hours here it's pretty brutal especially when it's raining. The killer instinct comes out in everyone and many drivers take really stupid chances. Idiots.

It makes the drive in to and from work extremely challenging. One of the reasons I love sailing. And thinking of my fabulous sailing experience this past weekend makes the drive in to work easier. Pop in that mental picture...and you get what I mean.

Hoping that everyone is having a wonderful and fabulous week. Countdown to hurricane season has begun! 11 days!!!

Stay safe and dry. I'll keep in touch.

Makes sense, David. We generally see hurricanes form nearer the end of the season rather than the beginning.

Happy sailing.

The low pressure system that produced all of that rain this past week may have become a tropical cyclone if it formed over water rather than over the state of Florida.

We just sailed back from the Florida Keys. I noticed that the sea temperature was in the low 80 degrees in the Keys and in the mid 70's near central Florida. It is my superstition that hurricanes like warm water... so we may not get much activity until the water temp reaches the upper 80's.
