During the summer months, Northeast Florida is usually drenched in afternoon thunderstorms. I can honestly tell you that today was only the third such deluge in probably just as many months. There was enough lightning surrounding me as I crossed over the Dames Point Bridge to make me feel like I was in a disco. The thunder was just a welcome sign that more rain was coming.
And after months of fire and smoke and coughing and facemasks and the stench of dying trees, the only thing we ask is to please send more rain!
