The fringes of tropical storm Cindy gave Floyd it’s first full day of rain since winter, soaking a drying land long in need of a good rain. Swollen creeks followed the end of the welcome deluge and Cindy has now moved on to points north (including our old stomping grounds of Washington, DC).

But more may be coming. Hurricane Dennis could come this way sometime next week, just about the same time the Governor of Virginia is supposed to chopper into Floyd for a photo-op town meeting.

A hurricane or a politician? Some choice.
