While most of you have been experiencing a relentless winter this year, I have been quietly enjoying a longer than average span of what I consider lovely Florida weather: highs between 60-75, lows in the 50s and 60s . But yesterday was our day for a storm.
The forecast yesterday morning was for a 40% chance of rain. Someone forgot to tell the storm clouds that. What it looked like was this:
Our street was completely flooded - which never happened until after the latest city "improvement" of the street when the sanitary sewers were installed a few years ago.
They did eventually update the rain probability to 80%.
This morning when I went out, I saw our high water marks.
None of this is unusual in south Florida summers. What was unusual was the fact that it was February. And because it is live oak pollen season the high water marks are really clearly defined lines.
My husband has been jokingly calling this "Florida's snow storm."
Now that March has arrived maybe the weather will settle back to normal, although I'll be glad to stretch out our air conditioning free days as long as possible.
