TROPICAL STORM BONNIE ADVISORY NUMBER 5

...CENTER OF BONNIE OVER BISCAYNE BAY...MOST OF THE WEATHER ALREADY
SUMMARY OF 1100 AM EDT...1500 UTC...INFORMATION"
Fell asleep on the futon facing the sliding glass door...woke up with wind hitting the glass hard. I smiled. Good Morning Bonnie!!
These two pics show you how fast rain storms in bands move in as they were taken about 10 seconds apart at the most...first the pic above... love that green water... and then the pic below...
A close up of the beautiful foamy beach...
Truth is this storm was handled well by both the NHC and all local governments in the South Florida area. People going slower, enjoying the beauty of nature and aware that we have stronger weather in intense thunderstorms but
We all love The Weather Channel but I think they are hyping this just a bit..
"endlessly pounding South Florida" is a bit much...
Went out for breakfast with my best friend... watched the squalls going by the window, enjoying it all. Worried on where Bonnie will go if she sticks together down the road.
But, that is down the road... will post pics as I have time... just know it's very tropical and different rain than usual as in FEELS different. Yesterday was a fine mist everywhere... this morning on the balcony it was heavy hitting like needles..then it was quiet. NOT a hurricane... just Tropical Storm Bonnie.
Bonnie was kind to South Florida... not sure if she will be as kind to other ports of call.
Back later with more info... stay safe and enjoy...
