With the humidity at suffocating levels ahead of Florence’s arrival to our area, the nightly walk brought out the royal Typhoon Tongue.
Our thoughts continue to be with all of our friends east of us dealing with Hurricane Florence (or closer to us, but their homes are being beaten by the storm). For us here in the North Carolina mountains, we will not see rain and wind for another day or so, and then only in a relatively mild way (a few inches of rain through the early part of next week). The tropical moisture, however, has already reached here and the air is quite warm and sticky, at least for us mountain dwellers used to cooler, drier air.
Last night’s walk certainly had us all panting, human and canine, even after we had settled back down in the house. And, yes, Typhoon’s bandage got quite muddy again.
