Well, it had to happen sooner or later!  I woke up today and turned on the Weather Channel to see what was happening with Tropical Depression No 1.  As it turns out it is now Tropical Storm Alberto and the outer bands are already hitting us today.  It is dark outside and the wind has really picked up!  We need this rain so badly, though.

Hope all is going well for everyone!  :)
