It’s Midnight here in Alabama, and Tropical Storm Arlene is still moving towards us some 200 miles south.
The eastern part of the storm is the heaviest and has drench the Florida peninsula with rain and wind for much of the day.
Local weather reports speculate that Arlene may reach “hurricane strength” by landfall, but as I turn in for the night the “leader bands” of rain have not reached us yet, although we are in the direct path of the storm. I glanced outside to see a bright sliver moon and a few stars. Hard to believe that by morning it’ll be here.
