Hurricane Arthur skipped us
Blessedly, Arthur skimmed past us without much impact. We had brought the awnings in to keep them safe, and that was was a good idea because it did get windy, but the main effect the hurricane had on us was to drop rain for over 24 hours straight. Just what we need, more rain! Still, it's surprising how dry the ground usually is, even with all the rain we've had. The plants here need watering ever single day, or they wilt. I think it's because the wind blows so much; it seems to dry the moisture right off the ground.
