The summer season around the capitol means many things. Fewer people. No lawmakers. Less traffic. Heat. Rain. More Rain. Less crowded restaurants, less crowded everything.
But changes will be coming soon. Summer conference and fundraising season will wind down and lawmakers will return to Tallahassee in September for committee meetings. Students will be back next month. The pace will pick up. The heat and rain might stick around, however.
We all learned last year what else the end of summer brings – the most active period of hurricane season. Let’s hope the hurricane season gives Florida a break this time around.
