Stormy Afternoon in Orlando


It's 3 o'clock in the afternoon and I'm inside our hotel room at the Marriott Orlando Airport. Today is the first of banabear's two-day seminar on technical analysis and he is in one of the hotel's conference rooms for the seminar. Since I do not drive yet, and I cannot go on sightseeing tour on foot, I have decided to stay inside the hotel room and wait until he's done with today's seminar.

Last night, we explored Church Street and the surrounding areas of Orange and Wall Streets, downtown Orlando's nightclub district. One local in the bar we went to suggested that we try Chillers and Latitudes. We planned to go back to Church Street tonight but with the sudden downpour coupled with thunder and lightning, I am no longer sure it is wise to go on a nightout later. There is a storm warning on tv and Orlando is now included in the list. Bummer!

Thunder crashes.
Lightning flashes.
Rain makes puddles.
I make splashes.
