Stormy Weather....

The storm will pass things will get better.  
It's pouring now. but it can't rain forever....

Arvid is a vodka and coke kind of man, and as you can see below that was a huge bottle 
of vodka.  My dad gave it to him a few years ago, and finally it is empty. Took him 
all of 3+ years to finish it and what better way than to have a birthday toast.

Yesterday the National Weather Service issued a sever thunderstorm watch in effect
until 7p.m. for Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach Counties.  Fort Lauderdale falls under
Broward County.  Here we are used to having Hurricanes, but a Tornado watch in not usual.

The day was pretty windy with dark clouds accompanied by rain on and off all day long.
Arvid, Brutus and I stayed mostly indoors except for a few chores that we had to do.

Thunder and lightning followed the bad weather, but we stayed nice and cosy indoors. 
 Brutus of course was initially scared, but Arvid always comforts him and makes him feel safe.

A funnel cloud was spotted near Miami International Airport and small hail was observed in the
 area of Hialeah, according to the National Weather Service. The strong storm was moving 
across northeast Miami-Dade and Broward County with winds of up to 25 mph.
The storm is capable of producing nickel-sized hail and gusty winds.

Tuesday morning, the "storm" has passed, but we are still getting the not so pleasant
weather that goes with it.  Currently raining and seems rain predicted for a lot of today.

To all a good day.  Stay dry and be careful out there on there.  Here in Florida we really 
need the rain, so for us this is a welcoming occurrence.  Hopefully will not linger for days.

Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is 
really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather...
