Southwest Florida’s summer weather has changed so much since we have been here, or perhaps every year is just different. A fantastic resource for our weather down here can be found over at Cape Weather.
Also, instead of teaching kids the second counting & distance of lightning thing, which provides a false sense of safety, please teach that if you can hear it then it’s close enough to hit you. We have many tourist families who stay in our complex and enjoy the pool and they don’t make the kids stop swimming until the thunderhead is over our complex! It’s pretty scary considering Florida’s lightning stats. Please be safe!
