Its September 2nd in Tampa Florida, and something is very wrong.
The sky was crystal clear this morning and dry.
Hot by mid-day but not humid.
Shades of blue we normally don't get to see till November.
How can this be?
Easy when you have a monster in the neighborhood.
I have always enjoyed the strange meteorological things that happen
in the presence of monsters.
Of course I'm referring to Hurricane Earl.
For days we have nervously watched as he approached, then he turned
and has sucked every drop of moisture from our sky's.
I'm glad Earl did not visit us, but his passing has left us with brief
wonderful escape from the hottest summer I can remember.
