tallahassee, florida, usa.

Tropical storm Alberto in action, an 8 am rainband with the usual
"foggy" skies due to the heavy tropical rain. One sees this a lot on the "Weather Channel" every summer, in various levels of intensity!
The wind whips the trees, but only at 20 mph.

In the South, the farmers call hurricanes, "dought breakers", and tallahassee is up to ten inches under the rainfall for this time of year and everything looked SO dry and dissicated, until Alberta came along!
