December 29. Day 363. The calm before the storm

There was only one topic on everyone's lips around these parts today - the weather or more specifically how stinking hot it was. You'd think that given we were all experiencing an equivalent level of heat-related discomfort and sweaty bits, conversation on the subject would be somewhat superfluous but no, most people had to get their whinge in. It was a day when you just knew the storm was coming and it couldn't come soon enough and yet there was also a sense that you should be careful what you wish for. A storm build up like today could mean that nature was just collecting ammunition for a big, bad show of force. Certainly the light and sound show around here was quite spectacular but fingers crossed, touch wood and all that there was little else to show for it. My hope is that others got the same release without the destruction.
