Edouard, just a fancy name for Edward. Hurricane Edouard, just a fancy name for a little rain. I enjoy a good thunderstorm. I have always loved to listen to the heavy rain on the roof and the thunder booming so much that you can feel it. I love watching the lightening from the window and I think it's an adventure when the lights go out. It's just plain exciting to me. So needless to say, I was slightly disappointed in Edward's, oh excuse me, Edouard's showing. Now, I'm glad that it did not wreak total havoc, but I was left feeling like I was still waiting on something. Kind of like watching a fireworks show, anticipating the grand finale, only to discover it already happened. Wait, THAT was it? Oh well. I did find a few teenagers having fun with the leftovers. These kids would stand on the side of the road next to a large puddle and wait until they saw a car nearing. Then they would jump up and down and point to the puddle in hopes that the car would splash the puddle and all its muddy contents onto them. Maybe you have to be 14 to find this game fun. I was really hoping that the Hurricane Season would shake a good one out of its system before September 13th. You know, get all the weather wrinkles out for smooth sailing the rest of the season. That being said, I am glad everyone has made it safely through the terrifying storm that was Edouard. Congrats, guys!
