When the day seems to be very hot and humid usually between 4-5 p.m. a rain storm arrives. We had a very powerful, driving storm. The temperature dropped and wind blew, which was welcomed, however, we were amazed again at the power of the storm. When looking out over the petite bamboo in our backyard, one can see a large palm tree. During the storm the tree was bending with the storm and all the branches were on the same side of the tree.
