All these giant storms could be doing lots of things:
- relieving drought in the south, central and western states. Maybe this will be a year where the rare desert flowers bloom again.
- a precursor of climate change where we get lots of giant (named) storms (until there are no more letters) which cause a lot of storm surges, erosion, power outages, structural damage and more trauma.
- signifying it might be a good time to sell your beach front property quick before the next storm wipes it out.
We live about 5 miles straight inland (as the crow flies) at about 150' above sea level. We joke that we might own beachfront property in a few years.
Today we are getting the remnants of Rocky as he rocks his way through New England. I believe that we are not due for another storm until next week. It will be nice to have a weekend where we aren't house bound due to the weather.
These big storms are hard for me. Due to lymphedema arm and arthritis body, I can't shovel snow. Or vacuum - but that doesn't really help in a snow storm. Its hard enough for me to clean off my car.
I will get through this giant rain storm and wait for some needed sun shine to appear.
