This is the wettest month in history, I think. We have had fierce rain several times this week. Last night the storm that swept across middle America reached us. This morning, the streets are littered with leaves and branches and the gray clouds keep rolling in. At dinner two nights ago, there was a flash of lightening and a boom of thunder that sent Cairo three feet into the air and then, more rain. We do not have to water our newly planted crepe myrtle -- Mother Nature is doing that for us. I have two dehumidifiers going in the basement, a necessity this close to the bay.
This is a celebratory weekend for us : tomorrow is our 28th wedding anniversary and Sunday is Father's Day. The only gifts we need are bright sunshine, a cool breeze, and a canoe ride on Hallock's Bay.
