Dan's Low (Weather)

See, now, you really do learn something new every day.

Our little hurricane was a pleasant storm. Very well behaved, polite like. Downright civil. It came, gave us about 120mm of rain, a good light show, brought the temps down, then left. No downed trees, no damage, just a little break in the summer weather monotony.

So far, as weather goes, Florida is like Taiwan Light. As far as bugs go... man... nothing like it. I'm working on my own bug repellent and will have it out by this time next year. There's a bush that grows in this area, American Beauty Berry, and the leaves are a natural repellent. I'm going to make tincture. I don't want to take a bath in DEET every day. See https://plants.usda.gov/factsheet/pdf/fs_caam2.pdf and https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2006/07/060703091932.htm .

Here's another tincture I'm working on -- Sweetgum Tree. It has the ingredients for Tamiflu. See http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26009686

All in all this is an OK climate. Weather comes from all directions all the time, or at least everywhere but from north.
