Showers shaping summer’s shadow

A few showers are forecast to pass by Boston on the way to a sunny weekend yet again! What a way to transition into the fall. If chance showers don’t float your boat, make sure to wait until the weekend to pursue some outdoor activities. (And remember to pack a brolly!) If you enjoy a good rainstorm, this is the perfect time for you — personally, I recommend rain as the perfect backdrop to a productive psetting, as long as you don’t keep your window too wide open. 

Meanwhile on the Gulf Coast, Tropical Depression Nicholas is causing more chaos on the tail end of Ida’s destruction. Tropical storms are no joke, and this hurricane season is already well on its way to exceeding several historic records. The Pacific Northwest is finally getting its share of heavy rain with a large storm expected to travel through Washington and Oregon and potentially bring the first snow of the season.
