March is usually a pleasant and dry month in Central Florida, sometimes too dry, but it is a beautiful, peaceful time before the tropical weather interrupts every afternoon with thunder, dangerous lightning and torrential rain.
It started yesterday with an all day storm that was welcomed after so much dry weather. I even commented on my personal blog how I love those rainy days as long as I don't have to get out in it and the joy of hearing the rain hitting the awnings on the windows, making it so inviting to sleep the day away and catch up for all those late nights with no sleep.
Sightings of a funnel clouds and resulting tornadoes began early this morning and didn't end until early evening, pounding the area with heavy rain and hail escorted by torrential winds that did widespread damage in Central Florida. The neighborhood is littered with fallen limbs, but thankfully no serious damage.
We personally spent most of the day with no electricity or running water that is generated by an electrical pump. It is the price we pay for living in paradise . . . the seasonal storms that result in electrical outages.
The rest of spring will hopefully be normal for this time of year with low humidity and comfortable temperatures . . . today was just a preview to prepare us for the upcoming summer rainy season.
Oh yeah, I almost forgot to mention dodging tropical storms and hurricanes in between the daily storms . . . that is a normal summer in Central Florida.
It doesn't matter where you live . . . we all get a taste of nature's fury.
How does nature's fury affect you
in your part of the world?
