I spent the day down at the Pamlico River. It was a day with very changeable weather. The day started very similar to the last few; hot and humid. During the afternoon storms started to invade the area.
The flat land with wide open spaces makes it possible to see the weather coming from a long distance away. Dark clouds and clouds with lightning are often visible on the horizon. Initially the storms went around our location, but eventually it came through with strong winds that had us scurrying to grab lose items and get them secured under cover. By late afternoon the first set of storms had passed. A second set of storms is passing through overnight.
