Summer is already going strong here in Florida, but one thing I love about this time of year is when the thunderstorms arrive. We usually get a few weeks of intense heat with humidity high enough to make you feel like you’re melting the moment you walk out the door. But it’s not until summer really gets going, and the humidity (unbelievably) rises even higher that the rains come. That’s when the skies open up, thunder rumbles and lightning flashes the sky.
Today’s storm wasn’t a major one but it was one of the first of the stormy season. And it happened on a Saturday when I was at home and could really enjoy it.
So what else does a true Halloween lover do when met with this type of weather? Why, turn on some spooky music (courtesy of my Halloween Soundtrack on Pandora) and get into the spirit of All Hallows Eve. I’ve spent the morning checking out some Halloween decorations online and I’m looking forward to seeing what the stores start putting out this year. Stay tuned for more on that as I’ll be giving you guys the scoop on all my sinister finds for indoor decor, as well as outdoor decor for those home haunters out there.
In the meantime, enjoy a taste of the sights and sounds of a Florida thunderstorm to get all you Halloween fans ready for the coming autumn, when temperatures cool (hopefully), scary movies are to be found on many TV networks and the scent of pumpkin spice will fill the air.
