The Weather
Great Scott! Yesterday began a bit overcast but became sunny and pleasant by late morning. In the late afternoon, the wind began howling, and the rain began falling. During the night, the wind abated significantly, but the rainfall increased greatly. This may be the wettest day of 2010 to date! YIKES!
