We had several days of rain that came up from a tropical hurricane off the coast of Mexico. It was welcome, even though it brought wind and flooding. The total from the storm brought us up to the annual average, and over, in some areas. Then this morning, I woke up at 4:45 to the sound of rain on the skylight and flashes of lightning and the accompanying thunder. With the ground already saturated, there will probably more flooding and road closures. Not a good time to be on the roads. Stay safe, everyone.
