I live about seven miles east of the Gulf, as measured from Lido Key to my home. Today I have seen some very heavy rainstorms, and a few ferocious wind squalls, but nothing dangerous.
In one of those squalls I delighted in the sight of some Live Oaks (maybe 60' high) as they writhed in the wind. It was a beautiful sight which reminded me of Psalm 29 v 8
"The voice of the LORD makes the oak trees writhe".
I've also enjoyed watching the crows who with their daring-do (sp?) seem to rejoice in riding the winds.
In my neck of the woods we've had a wee bit of local flooding, and a few fallen branches, But there have been breaks in the storm which have enabled me to walk out with Penne,
I have lifted these photo's from the net.
