We were watching TV last night and there was a big thunderstorm happening in Glades-Hendry and Collier County, with winds gusting to 45 mph. That was interesting enough since it is “Dry Season,” right now and a little early for rain. Not that I’m going to say, “no thank you.”
Then the weather station announced that there is a Tropical Storm developing along the coast of South Carolina. This is the first named storm of the 2012 Atlantic Hurricane Season. This means the ocean temperature has gotten high enough to host storms. (I think it really means that the ocean didn’t cool down much this winter-spring.)
We all need to stay vigilant since it looks like we may have a very strong Hurricane Season.
