Gulf Stream feeling

This morning had that pleasant wet feel that comes before a southeast rainstorm -- almost a breath of the tropics that reminds us of how close the Gulf Stream is.

A very agreeable effect until I realized that the basement might  flood  in the next couple of days.

And the wind  and the rain might soon strip off the blossoms from the flowering trees,  whose show is so brief.
