Thought I would share this before I head off to bed. As some of you may or may not know, Tropical Storm Claudette came ashore very early this morning at the Florida/Alabama border, basically. Well, here is it, almost 11pm here in Kentucky, of the same day!

And lo and behold, we have the first bits of the remnants of the same storm pounding on our doorsteps with heavy rains, high winds, and fierce lightning!! We went out on the porch to survey the storm and you could still smell the sea salt in the rain! Gosh, it smelled so good!!! I have missed living on/near the ocean waters and beaches, yes, even with the hurricanes.

That made my day. Being able to go out and smell that ocean smell in the rain was just wonderful! I have missed it soooooo much!

Hope any of you that have been to or lived by a beach can picture (and sense the smell in your nose) just what I am talking about!
