It's raining! Or, it was, all night. We definitely need this rain, having been in a moderate drought. And by tomorrow the temperatures will drop, which will also be good--we've had our AC on for the last 48 hours, which is almost unheard of. 80F three days before October?? Glad it's dropping again (and know this will upset at least one of my local readers, who is prone to being cold.)
I'm not sure we "need" a hurricane, though. Joaquin is headed up the eastern seaboard, no telling where exactly it'll go. I imagine we'll see some rain and perhaps high winds on Saturday, but nothing we can't handle, as far as we know now. It just means we might alter some of our outdoor plans for the weekend.
