It’s pouring rain right now, thanks to a Severe Thunderstorm called 93L. We’ll see if she turns into Tropical Storm Julia. When thunderstorms pass through, we don’t blink an eye because it’s still hurricane season in Florida. We blink when a hurricane churns directly toward us.
That’s my good news for today: we’re dealing with a thunderstorm but not a hurricane. Not only that, I accomplished a lot of work today and feel . . . content. I wish you the same.
