Today when I left my house at 7:15 AM, it was already 80 degrees. All over Southwest Florida (today I went up to Port Charlotte and then back to Fort Myers for different things,) the land is parched and dusty. We need rain. It did rain about a week ago, but we are waiting for our daily rain storms to start-up. When I got home at 5:30 PM, it was about 95 degrees out.
Then, while we were watching Jeopardy there was a thunderstorm warning posted for Collier County and Hendry County: they’re probably getting hail right about now. My Husband took the trash out and called me outside to look at the Sun, a bright hot red disc in the sky. I noticed a cooling wind coming out of the east and I would say it had dropped to about 70 degrees.
Maybe we will get some rain from this.
