September Morning Rain

September rain in Miami ushers in the real hurricane season. It is as if someone turned a switch in the heavens and you wake up to a multi-colored sunrise with dark rain clouds floating across the otherwise serene sky and suddenly there is the sound of gentle rain falling down. Sunrise showers. Messes up the walk to school for kids and the morning commute on I-95 but it is a sign of things to come.

Summer is afternoon rain... which we still get until October but now it is matched with the soft, incessant sound of rain falling down as the shower passes on somewhere else all the while the sun is still rising quietly on the horizon.

Fay is still raining morning rain on Northern Florida. Here's a sample of the weather report for the beautiful antebellum town that helped to bring you Coca Cola. Hey it's one of those family homes where my Grandma lived with her married sister growing up. Where she learned to sing those great Southern Lullabies.

As for the Invest we call 94... time to get that plane up in the sky... see if it has a verifiable center and we can get out of hurricane maps and start tracking again.

Personally, I hate the Mall... never seen such ugly looking clothes as there are this season. They didn't have the left black pump at Sears that they had the right one for. Maybe it's just me but Sears lately looks like a thrift shop and if I am doing the thrift shop I'd rather do Red, White and Blue. Noisy. Very noisy. Why are clothes on the rack wrinkled? Bought two black shirts, one dressy top and had a purple carrot at the juice bar.

Going to work, wonderful work... starting a new term at the end of the week :) Always nice seeing students back on campus.

Keep an eye on 94... Besos Bobbi
