Stormy weather

Peace River.jpg

It seems to rain here every afternoon and/or evening. This is a view of a fishing pier on the Peace River from the Port Charlotte Florida side. On the other side of the river is Punta Gorda Florida. I was trying to catch some lightning in the picture but wasn’t able to. We got a pretty good rain yesterday…and it’s thundering now. The days have been sunny and warm. Not as much humidity as back in St. Louis. My aunt lives in a mobile home park on the Peace River.

It was two years ago the 13th of next month (August) that hurricane Charley struck this area. I can still see buildings that were heavily damaged by Charley. I’m assuming that the owners didn’t have insurance as the reason they haven’t be rebuilt or torn down.
