So how's the weather?

Fortunately, all Ernesto gave us was some much-needed rain all day Friday into Saturday afternoon. But by Saturday evening, there was a gorgeous sunset, and a feeling of fall in the air. The clearing sky with the stormclouds to the north was breathtaking. We got a little bit of wind, but the rain wasn't hard enough at any one time for any significant flooding, except down by the Potomac River. The rain did mess up my Friday homeward commute, however; it took two hours, twice as long as normal, thanks to everyone heading out for the Labor Day weekend.

So that capped off the non-event that was Ernesto. But after Katrina, I don't think anyone will be underestimating any tropical storms anytime soon.
