We left Florida today. It was probably as bad a day for travel as can be, short of a hurricane or something. I have seen some really heavy rain in my day but this mornings rain was something else. We spend the first hour of our drive on city streets with lots of stop and gos and it rained, and rained...and rained some more! Finally we made it to I75 and shortly thereafter, the sun came out....
