This week, Tropical Storm Hermine came right at us. This is some video I took under the shelter of my back patio as the eye approached.
My yard was really happy to get some rain, but after two days, it had enough. It is still soggy. It's also a lovely shade of green - much better than the yellow-green it had turned after weeks of heat and not even a drop of rain.
Now, I spy things I only see after a good rain.
Then, I usually get at least one of these after a good rain.
