Rain And Open Windows

The windows are open for the first time in a long time. Not really cool enough and way too damp……
Yet the fresh air has made me feel better.

The fields all over are still drying out from the 5 inches we had earlier this month.
There are areas that have never dried out from all the flooding of the last year.
That being said…..certain areas needed this rain.
It took me awhile after moving here to get use to Florida being flooded and dry at the same time.
When you think about the sand just inched beneath the service in many areas …it isn’t hard to understand.

The same area yesterday.
Tomorrow it will probably look like the first picture.

If you look closely at the Live Oaks you will see the Resurrection Fern on the branches. Brown and dead looking.

After the rain they green up right away.
Park Drive has water covering the road in a few places.
It ‘s suppose to rain the next 2 days. We have already had at least 4 inches here.
Dreading the humidity that will STAY THIS TIME.
SUMMER WILL HAVE ARRIVED.
