Calm After The Storm...

After the storm comes the calm...

These last few weeks have been pretty erratic weather wise, but for those of us
 living in Florida, this is nothing unusual.  Summertime is the rainy season.  
With the rain we have the thunder, lightning and howling wind.

Palm trees swaying along the beach in Fort Lauderdale.  For me it is a pretty 
interesting sight and no matter what always beautiful.  As you can see not 
many are daring enough to brace the elements.

Back at home it was no different.  The sky just kept getting darker.
Even so, I can't help but find it beautiful.  The palm trees were also
swaying and the rain just kept coming down.  Those who live in Florida also 
know that when it rains it pours, but it last only for a shot time an then suddenly calm set in.

That was exactly the case yesterday.  Howling wind, rain, thunder, lightning and 
suddenly it cleared up.  Everything go very quiet.  The Intracoastal looked like a mirror.
After every storm the sun will smile.  The birds will sing. Remember also that if you
 spend your whole life waiting for the storm, you'll never enjoy the sunshine.

The good thing is that it never stops anyone from having a good time.
As you can see, as soon as the weather clears up, people are sitting out and
enjoying the sunshine.  Another of our favorite restaurants is Shooters.  Amazing views.

Greetings from Fort Lauderdale.

Clouds, leaves, soil, and wind all offer themselves as signals of changes in the weather.
 However, not all the storms of life can be predicted...
