Here in the south it is the norm in the summer fall months for hurricanes coming in ,but novenber!I can see the beginning of the cloud lines already.They look like the have been tore up,so easy to spot in the sky.There is a light breeze blowing around but they will soon pick up to i think they are saying like 25-35 mile and hour winds here.I love it like that!!!When the storms are not damaging i love it.You can watch the clouds go counter clock wise ,the rain sheets, and the wind blowing through the pines.I love that sound.Or let's say i love the sound in 50 mph winds and less...when they get up higher it begins to sound like monsters growling VERY LOUDLY!The night Ivan came through a few years ago,that was the most horrifying sound i had ever heard.Between growling monsters,trains and semi trucks, i prayed all night.These things i love can be bad sometimes..lol..But if you have never experianced a hurricane in the rural wooded areas..Lets just say..The sound is so loud you'll be up for the duration.My brother lives in town and said that night he stood out on the porch when he could and just listened to it,was not bad at all!I said come here next time if you want sounds...lol..My mom says wind through the pines is the most lonesome sound she has ever heard,makes her want to cry.Strange how one sound can be different to the hearer.There will be some flooding in some areas i know,so be careful all!Pasagoula miss. to indian pass florida has hurricane warnings up..so that puts us in the middle with a persistant east wind.It is still 125 miles of coast with 2 inches falling an our..This one is not much worrying anyone ,i am grateful for this.We have been blessed here this year.
