I love Miami in October. After suffering through the worst of the summer heat and storms October brings the dragonfly swarms that eat mosquito's by the truckload and what seems like the wettest week of rain. Usually during the second week of October we'll get a solid week of rain. We're talking Biblical with a steady deluge morning, noon and night. It's like mother nature wringing out the last summer storms and then magically here comes dry cold air from the north. Sometimes you can actually see the cold front moving down and suddenly we're into the winter months. At this point I stop worrying about hurricanes and start thinking about boat camping on Elliot Key, buying a nice 12 lb pork shoulder for the smoker and one day bagging my first buck. One day.
