Drought? Not anymore. Today was a unique day in Marco Island. In the 30 years of living here, I have never seen so much rain accumulate so fast in my entire life. The rain began last night and did not let for hours. It came down in buckets, then lightened up, then came more driving rain. There are road closures on the island due to flooding. In addition, there is more rain on the horizon. We wanted to remind everyone to take a few minutes extra when driving around the area today and to be safe.
