Jacksonville Storm Clouds

Like most other cities around the southeast Jacksonville has been in a tropical rain pattern with rain and storms almost daily.  Today I was checking the local radar and saw that a storm was approaching from the west and getting close to the St. John’s river moving northeast.  There is a boat landing about a mile from my home on the east side of the river that gives some nice views to the west over the water and with the Jacksonville skyline barely visible to the north.
