I left the island early yesterday morning (hence no journal entry for Thursday) to pick up Lou Ann in Norfolk. It was raining when I pulled out of my driveway, and it poured all the way to the airport and most of the way back home again.
It was hard to believe how much water was standing on Howard Street when we returned. Lou Ann commented that eating dinner on the back porch, with raindrops falling from the roof, and listening to the cacophony of tree frogs, toads, and birds, felt like being in a tree house in a tropical rain forest.
Mostly the rain has stopped, though the sky is overcast. We are all hoping for clear, sunny skies, and dry ground tomorrow for the Ocrafolk Festival.
