We just finished 3 days of rain caused by a little area of low pressure that just sat off of the NC coast. Today it moved south and we had beautiful weather. I spent some time this afternoon just sitting and pondering life while looking out over the Neuse River in Oriental, NC. Now that area of low pressure has intensified into Tropical Storm Alberto and is supposed to drift back this way over the next 3 days. This is the earliest in the year that I can ever remember having a tropical storm out here. I guess it will be back to rain and wind for the first part of the week.
