The Rain and Storms have Passed
Looking at the monthly weather calendar, there have only been 4 days this month where we saw some sun mixed with clouds. And the rain! Nearly 14" just this month! Of course, the campgrounds for my first scheduled camping trip are completely underwater and not expected to be dry for a week or more!
But despite the disappointment and despair over such gloomy weather, I really can't complain. Many people have had their lives devastated this week by severe weather that has swept across our nation. With a death toll hovering close to 300 and thousands of people displaced as their homes are destroyed, there is a great need for help. Please consider donating to the American Red Cross or other organization to help all the victims of these awful storms. Even if you can only afford $5 or $10, it can mean a lot to those in need.
