The entire state of Florida has been getting heavy rainfall the past few days.
Somewhere in the picture below is the state of Florida. This is pretty much what the state looked like for the past few days.
One band of rain would come through and we’d think it was finished, but then a new area would form in the Gulf. This is the problem of being between two warm bodies of water in the summer time. Fortunately, we didn’t get much lightning and we were high and dry in our Rv park.
Saturday night the frogs were singing and of course that freaks me out. The frog that had been in the bathroom vent that Al covered, is apparently still there. We heard him loud and clear.
Saturday morning, I 75 northbound was closed due to an armed man who shot at a State Trooper who had stopped to check on a disabled vehicle.
The Trooper was not injured. They immediately closed the interstate down resulting in a horrible back-up for at least three hours.
Can you imagine being in your car stopped in traffic for that long? You wouldn’t be able to run your AC that long and it was hot and muggy, and what about a bathroom break? If you were in your motorhome you would have a bathroom, food and air conditioning. :)
The first Trooper called for back up, they located the man. Apparently he fired at the police and was then shot dead. Good riddance. That’s a scary thing to think of someone shooting at you as you’re driving on the interstate. There was speculation he was an ISIS sympathizer, but there is nothing in the newspaper today. Go figure.
HERE is a link about the story if anyone is interested.
We’re glad it is over and the suspect is no longer going to be a problem.
