Another Whopper Of A Storm!

March 11, 2015

Okay, so we’re not exactly experiencing a drought busting storm today, but it’s still nice to walk outside and feel the handy work of evaporation and a cooling atmosphere.

Is The Rain Really Coming?

February 27, 2015

The approaching storm system has inspired me to plan absolutely nothing this weekend.
